BMW follows his old footsteps and do as they almost always do – just before the final series model will be unveiled, we see a “concept” which is almost identical in appearance. Premiere of the audience will be in Paris, where the autumn salon opens on Saturday 2 October, and then we get a closer look at “BMW 6 Series Coupe Concept”.
As we see, the chief designer Adrian van Hooydonk continued along the same line that started with the new 7-series a few years ago. There is a post-Bangle-design “where the sharp cut lines with alternating concave and convex surfaces had to give way to something that perhaps could be described as more” elegant “than the” look-at-me “. Whichever style you prefer is of course entirely matter of personal taste, but BMW’s sales figures show that there is an acceptance of both playfulness and tighter lines.
According to Adrian van Hooydonk is a concept car at the pictures about what we can expect in the series model, when it rolls out to dealers next spring. The side mirrors are different, and avgasrörens design and the large wheels may be something for the aftermarket. The front is similar to a hajnos and also set the car’s headlights should be (optionally) the “full” LED which indicates both high and low beams, and the now classic, round BMW light rings.
Biggest change we find the back where the “Bangle-butt” is gone with only a small integrated rear wing. Similar LED taillights in which 5-series, which incidentally is the technological platform for new 6-series will find most of their components. Some exact dimensions offer no BMW at the time of writing but it is rumored that the new 6-series is a bit lower than its predecessor and the wheelbase is obviously an extension, which will hopefully be passed on to the back seat.
Some details about engine options, we should not. But it’s a not too wild guess that with the exception of the four-cylinder models will find everything from five series in six series. At the top of the food chain will eventually a new M6, but not V10, but instead provided with a more powerful version of the twin-turbo, V8.
