Ahead of the Paris Motor Show starting in two weeks time, BMW has revealed their Concept 6 Series Coupé, a new definition of luxury-class 2+2-seater. Based on the current 5 Series’ underpinnings and using the design concept of the Gran Coupé shown in Beijing, the new BMW 6 Series has shown its face.
The two-door version of the Gran Coupé includes some design details, like a more upright grille, LED headlights complementing the rearlights, an exhaust system with four tailpipes and 20 inch aluminum wheels. The all-LED design is featured for the first time on a BMW.
The interior of the BMW Concept 6 Series Coupé conveys functionality, elegance and exclusiveness, according to the Germans. The driver-centric interior design is includes touch controls and a freestanding 10.2 inch iDrive Control Display in the centre of the instrument panel. The concept model is also equipped with a head-up display system. The hi-fi system was designed especially for the Concept 6 Series Coupé by Danish audio systems specialists Bang & Olufsen.
The concept gives us the first glimpse of the new 2012 6 Series and the brand new M6. The powertrains available will be an array of naturally aspirated and turbocharged inline sixes. The next M6 will use a twin-turbocharged 4.4 liter V8 similar to the X6 M and X5 M. The standard 6 Series is expected to hit the showrooms early next year, with the M6 arriving in late 2012.
