Spotted - BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe in alpine white - Real life photos

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I spotted this weekend the white 6 Series Gran Coupe in Munich in the vicinity of Olimpic Park . The car is a factory test vehicle. Exhaust says it's either a 640i or 640d

The weather was dreadful but the pictures are not that bad I think.

On my way there I also saw two camouflaged 1 Series but my camera was off at that moment.

Gorgeous. I saw an A7 on the road yesterday. This is a better looking car, to my eyes.

It's kind of "roundy" looking like the Panamera. Not the sportiest looking thing.
The CLS and A7 do it better IMO.

I think it is the color, wheels and lighting combined with the rain that is throwing the look off for me. All the other images have been awesome and I am sure the 6 with the m-sport package will be breath taking.

I'm 6.4 ft. tall & went to try out the new 6 series at my local dealer. I couldn't seat inside. I tried different seat positioning but didn't work. Small space for the driver. I was really surprise that I'm seating in F10 easily with a lot of comfort.

The car had definitely winter tires on. On Saturday in the morning I had about 10-15cm of fresh snow on my car, which thaw during the day, but the driving conditions were difficult. In a car with over 300 bhp it would be silly and irresponsible to drive with summer tires in such conditions.

Thanks for sharing. The car looks so much better than the A7 and CLS, I don't like the hatchback of the A7 and the new design of the CLS doesn't work for me. The 650 GC is so much more aggressive looking, especially with the 21' wheels.

This has taken the 6 series' complete worthlessness to a completely new level. Another oversized, unnecessary car.

speaking of snow, we just woke up to 10 inches the other day in Bagram.

of course I'm only driving a crappy ford ranger...

Plus, its the law to have snows on from Oct-March I think.. something like that.. my NCOIC (LPO) wouldn't let me drive my 135 when I was at Landstuhl until I got my snows on. Of couse I had just picked it up late October and my Tire Rack order was already on its way.. what a fun year of drivnig that was. She did love driving around Munich.
