Cool 2010 LA Autoshow: BMW Concept 6 Series Coupe Makes North American Debut

Fascinating vision: BMW Concept 6 Series Coupe.

The 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show is the setting for the North American premiere of the BMW Concept 6 Series Coupe. This design study for a premium-class 2+2-seater is the embodiment of a passion for aesthetics and dynamics. Flowing lines and aesthetically sculpted surfaces define the design of the BMW Concept 6 Series Coupe, in which classic BMW coupe styling cues are given a modern rendition. Among the innovative details featured in this concept study are full LED headlights and a newly designed, freestanding Control Display for the iDrive operating system.

The BMW Concept 6 Series Coupe is a fascinating vision that blends traditional values with innovative design language. This concept model showcases the experience the brand has acquired in more than 70 years of building sporty and elegant Coupes. It also paves the way for a new, aesthetically powerful and dynamic interpretation of this breed of vehicle. With the BMW Concept 6 Series Coupe, the German premium carmaker is presenting a new definition of luxury-class 2+2-seater driving enjoyment and exclusiveness.

The powerful proportions and sporty yet elegant lines of the BMW Concept 6 Series Coupe provide the perfect packaging for its dynamic performance and personality. All the classic hallmarks of a BMW Coupe are present, including the stretched hood, the short front overhang, a passenger compartment set well to the rear, and a low silhouette incorporating a dynamically flowing roofline. The principal bodywork lines run the full length of the concept model, and there is a strong sense of stylistic unity between all the different parts of the vehicle.

Eye-catching features of the concept model include the new LED headlights, which combine the typical BMW twin round headlight format with innovative lighting technology. The all-LED design, featured for the first time on a BMW, produces a strikingly bright white light with very sharp and intensive road illumination. The functionality includes Adaptive Headlights, i.e. the headlight beam follows the road at all times. The LED rings for the daytime driving lights accentuate the characteristic, unmistakable BMW front-end styling.

The interior of the BMW Concept 6 Series Coupe conveys functionality, elegance and exclusiveness. The fluent lines and smooth transitions in the cockpit area produce an ambience that extends to the whole interior, embracing both the front- and the rear-seat occupants. The driver-centric interior design is typical of BMW and a hallmark of a sports Coupe. Keynotes are the exceptionally stylish design in the centre console area and, providing a further innovative touch, the freestanding 10.2-inch iDrive Control Display in the centre of the instrument panel. The concept model is also equipped with the Head-Up Display system that offers world-beating functionality and display quality. For maximum listening quality, the hi-fi system was designed especially for the BMW Concept 6 Series Coupe using high-quality components from Danish audio systems specialists Bang & Olufsen.

I like it!

Are those rear speakers a throwback of the E24 6-series? I dig it.

It looks a bit plain, but the elegance of its simple design is starting to dawn on me. I still think that interior looks nasty with the faux alcantara and shit.

The interiors suit a 50 yr old driver... that headliner is revulsing. All the hoopla...and they bring out this.

Honestly IMO audi seems to be bringing out more inspiring designs these days.

Like a two door F10 which makes it just about perfect; I reckon the M Sport version will be the icing on the cake, especially if they lose those blingy wheels - they'd look better on a Jag.
Shame about the DRL's, those flat bottoms make them look like Audi sport steering wheels.
