Earlier today, BMW launched a mini site for the new BMW 6 Series Coupe Concept. The section dedicated to the 6er Concept takes us around and inside the car, showcasing some of its design cues and technology.

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 first U.S. 2011 6 Series model will debut in March of next year in the form of BMW 650i Convertible. In July 2011, the 650 Coupe will follow. Later in September of 2011, the BMW 640 Coupe and Convertible will launch, along with the xDrive variant of the 650.

BMW 6 Series Coupe Concept: Updated photos

As we pointed out earlier, from the front, the car heavily resembles the Gran Coupe Concept revealed earlier this year in Beijing. The front-end is dominated by an all-LED setup, including the main lights, daytime running lights, foglights, and signal indicators.

The side design brings back memories from the CS Concept. From flame surfacing, to concave and convex shapes, the design offers substance, dynamics, sportiness and an agile allure.

But where the Concept 6 Series Coupe really shines is the rear-end presence. The trunk lid runs into the L-shaped LED taillights in a fluid, harmonious way. The rear bumper resembles closely the one seen in the CS Concept and the trapezoidal-shaped exhaust tips come to confirm this.

BMW remains true to its core design elements and the BMW Concept 6 Series Coupe continues to feature the driver-oriented cockpit, which underlines the sporty character of the 6 Series.

The interior is dominated by the large 10.2 inch display that reveals the latest infotainment system from BMW. The ConnectedDrive system plays an important role in the new 6er and provides even more integration across devices within the car, but also a synergy with the driver and the passengers.

As we approach the Paris Motor Show, we expect to learn more about the new 6er, so stay tuned for more news.

    Gosh, it’s flippin’ gorgeous!

    I think it’s got design eliments hidden within the whole, that will only later become apparent. My guess is that as we live with the car, seeing it everyday (hopefully), it will remain interesting and beautifull for a long time.

    Like Phillip says…

    As the original 6 series was nicknamed the “Shark”, I can see that nickname coming back into play with this one.

  • woo hoo

    As the last 6we was good enough for ‘opa’ this one will appeal to a younger demographic. I want the grand coupe… Noting will say “I’m better than you” than rolling up next to Joe Carry….loser

    As the last 6er was good enough for ‘opa’ this one will appeal to a younger demographic. I want the grand coupe… Noting will say “I’m better than you” than rolling up next to Joe Camry in one of these….loser
