BMW 6 Series Coupe Concept coverage continues with a video posted by BMW showcasing the new 6er through its inception.

The car will be officially unveiled on September 30th at the Paris Auto Show and the first production model will arrive at Geneva in 2011.

The new, redesigned, revamped 6er Coupe strives to conquer once again the high-end segment of premium, luxurious, sporty Coupe vehicles. As we have seen in the first official photos, with the new BMW 6 Series, BMW has another opportunity to outline the new design language under chief designer Adrian Van Hooydonk. Escaping from the sometimes radical and adventurous Bangle design, the new 6er Coupe is softer and “safer” than its predecessor, but continues to emit a strong presence across the exterior design lines.

    Thanks, BMWBLOG for the great coverage of the ne wmodels. I’m especially enjoying the development of the MegaCity and the new 3 and 6. Why these models?

    Megacity = All-electric = Future of automotive power for the forseeable future
    3 = heart of the BMW line, always an indicator of the brand direction
    6 I just appreciate as a beautiful GT coupe (I own one)

    What about the Gran Coupe?

    This is a good looking car. But just thinking if there is room for improvement for the lower part of the front bumper… It is too “inward” at the moment and makes the car look stypid at some angles imo.

    Does it not share design cues with the Concept CS of 2007, as does every other BMW intro’d since then?

    Well, who was Head of Design at BMW in 2007?

    What’s this garbage about the F12 being “safer” than its predecessor, when it was AvH himself who designed the E63-64?!

    Is AvH “escaping” from himself?!?!

    • FreudeKing

      It was AvH who designed that ugly 7 Series in 2001! He is actually the person who messed up BMW’s designs a few years back!!! He is known for his admiration for pig nostrils! Maybe the bangle butt is not from Bangle afterall, AvH could well be the person who admires it in his car designs.

      Bob, as you probably know, Bangle decided the direction in design for BMW, therefore, even though most of the cars were not designed by him, actually very few, the designers worked under his direction. And yes, AvH designed the 6er, but looking at the two cars side-by-side, you clearly see the language change. We will have some photos shortly outlining that.

      And yes, the new design is safer, inline with the other BMW products, similar to the new 5 Series which was very well received.

      Yes, it shares design cues with CS Concept, but keep in mind, that was a recent design, so the changes were more drastic, even though Bangle was still there. He probably started this new direction for BMW also and Adrian is just continuing with his own ideas added to it.
