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.

    So you feel the Autocar report was wrong as well? The one contact at BMW we have states there was no official word on cancelling the M6 and it had been on track all along.

      Yes. I think they are wrong, but I also believe it’s too early too tell…the M6 won’t be out until 2012…plans can change..

    Well, they decided that a Z4-M was unnecessary, considering that it was a purpose-built sports car to begin with. If that’s how they view the 6 series, maybe that’s the case.

    The renderings look great!

      Difference is the M5 and M6 share the same basic drivertrain and a precedent was already set for it. Why would they suddenly abandon the M6 when the M5 is already coming as is the new 6 series? It is not like they have to suddenly spend a tons of money in development, it has already been done.

    In Some markets we have officially stopped offering the E63 Coupe.
    This October see’s the end of production of the E63 and E64 , And the M6 models The new 6er Coupe will debut before the end of the year with a public debut pencilled in for Geneva in March. European sales begin shortly after with US sales commencing early summer.What the mis-interpretation was that the M6 stops production and will not be re-offered until 2012.

    Our schedule for Paris showcases something 6er “based”. But it wont be the production car.

  • kayg

    oh yeh, they did it agen. il take it in white thank you.

  • BIMMER1

    It looks like an overweight M3 to me. I’ll have to wait to see it in person, but I’m hoping that all of these new models don’t end up looking too much alike. It seems like every new design borrows too many similar traits from the other new designs, instead of every design being it’s own unique vision.
