Exclamation World's first peek at next gen F12 6-series coupe!

As featured on Bimmerpost Homepage.


We bring you the first ever sighting of the next generation 6-series coupe (F12)! Until now, only the 6-series convertible prototype has been spotted. This 6-series coupe prototype clearly differs from the convertible in the larger rear window, different side windows, and large B-pillars.

If you'll recall, BMW North American CEO, Jim O’Donnell has called this new generation 6-series the "best looking BMW in years," and it's certainly shaping up to be a sleek and well proportioned coupe!

...the roof almost gives the impression it is a folding hardtop vert with those lines across it... ~Frost

I thought the same for a moment, but the B-pillar gives away the coupe.

If only BMW would do away with that flat, blunt, shark-nose front. Stupid pedestrian safety laws. They shouldnt be walking in front of cars anyay.

Looks as if it is going to get a rather large BMW logo on the middle of the trunk, from what I can see in these pictures. Looks good from what I can see. :-)

I actually thought it might have a removable carbon roof panel that would fit in the trunk... then I woke up.

Hard to tell with the camo on but it does look super bland.
