The current 6 looks fabulous in any colour. Even if they are an artistic glamour of colours.

the 6 GC is the summum of all the Art Cars !


I dont know how it would look like in 15 years... but right now, that's the SHEET !

the old 5 and 7 series as art cars are so ugly and out dated...

the M3 race car and the LeMans are the best art cars too.

Will it drive Le Mans (or other races), like previous Art Cars?

Not all Art Cars raced. The previous sustainable idea was the H2 R racer which was ...er different.

Pretty cool. Too bad folks don't actually drive cars like that. It'd be nice to see something different going down the road.

For people who want to order your 6er like the 650i shown, the color name is: Urban Mural Metallic. For an additional $3000 you can individualize it even more with Frozen Urban Mural Metallic and in two weeks time, BMW will be unveiling a special edition 650i in that color way called the Urban Mural Performance Edition. There will be no upgrade in the power, however, there will be emblems littered all around the car mixed with carbon bits here and there. Limited to 650 copies.
