Ready for a new rendering? Even since the unveiling of the BMW Gran Concept, rendering artists around the world are having fun illustrating the next generation BMW 6 Series. Some of you might wonder how the two vehicles are related. According to sources close to BMW, some of the design cues seen on the Gran Coupe Coupe will be visible on the new 6 Series as well, starting with the beautiful corona ring headlights and the front-grille.
This week, the fellows over at BimmerBoost took their turn at rendering the next generation F12 BMW M6, BMW’s flagship that will debut in 2012. Despite a recent report published by Autocar speculating on BMW’s plans to omit the M6 in the next generation, our sources indicate that the F12 M6 is still on track.
Details are scarce at the moment, but the new M6 will likely be powered by an upgraded version of the 4.4 liter V8 engine, producing near 600 horsepower, similar to the upcoming BMW M5. As with the regular 6 Series, we expect lots of Gran Coupe design elements to make it into the M6, featuring an aggressive front-end, a rear bumper with an integrated diffuser. As with any M car, expect to see aerodynamic side skirts, wide rear fenders and the usual four-tailpipe exhaust system.
Lots of rumors at the moment, but we expect to learn more after the 2012 BMW 6 Series makes its debut this fall at the Paris Motor Show.
