The new 2012 BMW 6 Series Coupe goes on sale this fall and prior to the official launch, BMW continues to test several prototypes around Munich area.
The new 6er Coupe debuted in a concept form last year at the Paris Motor Show and it was shortly followed by the 6 Series Convertible. The F12 6 Series showcases the new design language at BMW, as seen in the new 5 Series and other upcoming models.
The production model of the 6 Series Coupe goes through minimal changes compared to the Concept version, a set of new wheels and different mirrors.
BMW 6 Series Coupe is the first vehicle from the Munich-based automaker to get full LED treatment; driving lights, indication lights, brake lights and rear-lights.
It has the same length as the current 6 Series, but sits on a wider track and has been lowered to enhance its sportiness character.
Looks-wise, the 6 Series concept appears stronger, more sculpted, and more fluid designed that the current model. Flame surfacing is out and the car features more hardened lines running across its side. The front-end design reflect both the sophistication and aggressiveness that went into this design. The kidney-grille are unique across the lineup with glass inserts along the top ridge.
The long bonnet and shorter overhangs are what perfectly describe a 6 Series model, and BMW enhanced these traits even more in the latest model. Also notable are the swollen front fenders, after which a sharp, chiseled upper body emerges.
Pricing has not yet been announced, but we expect it to be near the $90,000 mark in the US.[Source: Secretnewcars ]
