We have just finished publishing an article with the latest details on the new 2010 BMW 6 Series and we are back with more exciting information. An additional model will be added to the 6 Series line-up and it will take the shape of a GT car. The Progressive vehicle will be a premium sports car with four door, a coupe shape, but NOT your typical sedan.

The 6 GT will be a “progression” of a sports coupe vehicle and it will be the first BMW coupe with a hatchback and four doors. It will be a four seater only model, each passenger position and the driver are separated with a large sweeping console.

Exterior wise, the BMW 6 Series GT will have a different look when compared to the 6er Coupe and Convertible with a wider grille and headlights which sit above the grille positioned on each corner , similar to the current car from the CS Concept Car.

The headlights when looked at from the side are heavily raked into the front wings to give a more dynamic sporty look. The typical 6 Series flared wheel arches remain intact and will retain the 6ers muscular proportions.

At the lower level of the flanks, there is a more pronounced sculpture, somewhat similar to what we see on the to the latest 7 Series and the future 2010 BMW 5 Series. A strong shoulder line is typical on this car, inverting into the rear lights.

The new car receives an integrated bootlid.

The 6er GT will be powered by similar engines as the ones found in the other 6 Series models, twin-turbo six-cylinder and V8 as well.

Internally, the BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo is developed under the F14 platform.

Thanks for the info Scott!
