Cool More Realistic 6-series Coupe Concept Photos

From http://www.evo.co.uk/news/evonews/25...e_concept.html

EVO has posted these new 6-series Coupe Concept photos, the most realistic and natural we have seen yet. Previous photos have been heavily post-processed, but we think that the more realistic the photo, the better this concept looks. Which naturally means that it should look phenomenal in the metal at the Paris Motor Show next week! These are also the first photos of the 6-series coupe concept with its LED bumper lights prominently on.

Not sure about the eyebrows...Maybe it should have gone a little further over the first angel-eye....

Keep trying to like it, but I can't. Maybe in time it will grow on me. Those wheels, however, have to go.

the thing is the old one was soo advanced fot its time that, if a car company brought it out now it would still seem new and slightly radical, the new car looks amazing

The headlights are too big on the bottom... there is a lot of wasted space where it's just black... they should be sharper and less bulbous imo.

Old headlights + New grill = good? The old grill just looks pasted on in that picture haha.

Waiting to see an M6

I dunno...

Are those just regular bulbs? Why not xenons?

And those LED bars at the bottom are lame.

Thats not a "PRE" LCI facelift 6 series coupe...that IS a LCI Facelifted coupe.
the LED eyebrows on top of the headlight tell you whether it is an 04/05/06/07 (PRE LCI) or 08/09/10 (LCI)

i think it looks great! wheels are a little out there, but it's a concept car so i'm sure they won't make it to production. kinda on the fence about the LED strips/fogs. i don't like that they're bandwagoning, but i gotta admit they look good

Can't help but think how much better it would have looked if they would have stuck to the original design which included the broken shoulder line ala Cs .

Agreed. The CS looks a thousand times better and more aggressive.

I think the front looks too much like a catfish or something, but I still think it's quite sexy. I'm loving the new take on the angel eyes.
