Today, we bring you the first design sketches of the recently unveiled BMW 6 Series Coupe Concept. Designed by Nader Faghihzadeh, very same designer that penned the interior of the latest generation 7 Series, the new 6 Series Coupe is one of the most stunning production-ready BMWs unveiled in the last decade.

In our upcoming interview, Faghihzadeh will explain further the design ideas behind the new 6er, and how it came to life. Drawn under Van Hooydonk’s leadership, the new 6 Series is not only about design, for the first time, technology plays an important role inside and outside the cabin.

The 6 Series joins the new design language at BMW, as seen in the 5 Series, a new design trait that debuted last year with the Z4 Roadster. The enhanced belt lines with the hood creases and lines flowing from the front till the end, are highly visible on the 6er.

The concept is more emotional that the photos described it. The short overhangs and slope lines give the car the distinctive look we came to love in the 6 Series Coupe, a car that emulates perfectly the style and passion of BMW’s chief designer Adrian Van Hooydonk. These lines become even more obvious in these design sketches that show the creativity that went into the design of this car.

Production car launches in 2011 and it will go through very minor changes, different side mirrors and wheels.

Thanks for the tip Billy!

    Why did they modify the end product? This sketch is perfect. The actual car looks average compared to this concept.

      Final product is really similar to this. Most of changes comes on engineers’ demands. It looks like with this roofline car wouldn’t have enough space for heads of rear seat passangers, perhaps for heads of front seats passangers also. If I remember correctly, previous 6-er initial roofline needed to change for the same reason.

        You’re probably right… but then again – the M1 and the E28 turbo concept (if my memory serves me right) were VERY low cars…

        • ty

          BMW Turbo Concept E25 1972 is what I was referring to.

        • wazon8

          Perhaps, but 6-er is supposed to be luxury and spacious coupe.

          • ty

            That does make reason! Good talking to you!

    i dont know why nobody(except bmw fans) likes the new 6 series,but i must admit i dont like the headlights,its just too big…maybe they change that in lci …

  • Jack

    So far I like the new 6 Series but I’ll reserve my overall judgement for when I actually see the car. Pictures usually do no justice to any car.

  • sok

    Stunning car. Nothing i can say for disadvantage.
    Can’t wait to drive it.

  • viper

    bmw never had the balls to execute something like this.
    hail citroen.

    • wazon8

      You’ve got balls, they have reason. You will launch a car without place on rear seat passangers head, they won’t do it. You know shit about cars, they know how to make them. Viper, try to think sometimes.
