BMW 6-series Gran Coupe to be produced based on BMW Gran Coupe Concept

SEE ALSO: BMW Concept Gran Coupe Info/Media Official Thread


The BMW Gran Coupe has been approved for production, the frameless windows will remain but the car still maintains a B-Pillar for Dynamic finesse.

The BMW Gran Coupe will be marketed as the... BMW 6er Gran Coupe.
Gran Coupe brings a new segment to BMW's portfolio and will spread to include other BMW models in the Future, just like Gran Turismo will.

This will bring a portfolio of three variants to the 6er , Coupe , Gran Coupe and Cabrio.

A Shooting Brake model to accompany the Gran Coupe has been designed and built for design and market evaluation.

The BMW Concept Gran Coupe will make it's European public debut later this year at the Paris Auto Show incidentally alongside another BMW Concept Car that will debut @ Paris.

The visual details of the front and rear of the Gran Coupe will be carried over to the new 6er Coupe.

Epic thumbs up Scott

Can you talk engines yet? I guess what I really want to know, is will the TT V12 make it under the bonnet of this beast?

Now this can surely compete against Audi's exterior designs.

I'd be disappointed if the 6 series Coupe would receive a saloon front end like this Gran Coupe. It should have a more sporty and distinctive GT front end.

As an addition to the 5 series saloon, the Gran Coupe is a stunning design. The current 6er is not a two door 5 series. Keep it that way.

A 4-door coupe?? Isn't that an oxymoron?

yea, same here. the design looks cool, but it just doesnt feel like a BMW to me anymore. front is still ok, but the rear...reminds me of the new Acura RL, which = bad.
