The renderings guessing game continues with some new computer generated images of the upcoming, redesigned, 2012 BMW 6 Series. GermanCarForum member Andy Valencia illustrates the next 6 Series based on the recent spy photos and while the final result may vastly vary, it is still quite interesting to see different variations of one of the sportiest BMWs ever built.
Moving away from the CS Concept influenced renderings we have seen so far, these new images take some cues from another sporty and highly praised BMW, the new E89 Z4.
According to previous reports and inside sources, the next 6-series coupe and convertible will be radically different from the current cars’ styling. The current 6 Series is very polarizing due to the “Bangle butt” it carries, but the redesigned 6er, is rumored to be a “super sleek” vehicle, as seen in these latest spy shots as well.
The 2011 6 Series is slightly longer and wider than the current generation. It will have shorter overhangs and a lower roofline which implicitly gives the car a more muscular look.
Despite some initial reports on a hardtop 6er, trustworthy sources mention the softop as remaining the only offering for the convertible.
While not officially confirmed, sources around the Munich-based automaker mention a November revealing of the new BMW 6 Series.
Here are more variations of the same rendering.
