Called the BMW Concept 6 Series Coupé, the newcomer has classic BMW coupe styling cues, including a long bonnet, short front overhang, a passenger compartment that is set well back, a long wheelbase and a low-profile silhouette with a dynamically flowing roofline. So it's a bit like the old one then, only much prettier! (You'll surely agree...)
The L-shaped rear lights establish a visual link between the sides and the rear of the vehicle, they say, while two LED-powered light strips create the familiar BMW night-time look, an effect enhanced by the L-shaped lower light unit. The direction indicator, tail light and brake light are also LED-powered.
Sadly BMW isn't saying what the 6-series engine line-up will look like yet, but it would be odd if they didn't offer follow-ups to the 635d, as well as the 630i and 650i models.
From a philosophical point of view we're also disappointed there'll be no V10-powered M car to follow up our monstrously charismatic PH long-termer, but in reality we doubt if we're going to be that disappointed when the expected twin-turbo V8 powered replacement car storms in, instead.
