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.

    I don’t like the head lights stretched upwards like that. They look like the eyes of someone who has had one too many facelifts.
    I do like the headlights on the vision concept. They seem related to the e30. So the next one will be better: pass.

    • FreudeKing

      I agree. What the hell are there evil huge bug eyes doing on a car that is supposed to be elegant and sleek???

  • Georgie

    I agree. Most of the new BMWs look like Lexuses. They have this facelift pulled-back look on the front. Everything is going diagonal and stretched. I miss the flater angles of older bimmers. The lights on the concept were really nice. Do they think people won’t notice that the production lights are not as good???

    • FreudeKing

      Exactly, what they did was they took out all the fancy chrome and nice lines within the headlight unit and came up with this cheaper looking light unit that messed up the entire face of this 6 Series.

      Oh, by the way, what’s the point of all the camo?? We know how boring this car looks already judging from the convertible. This is nothing like the concept that thry cbought out. It is just amazing how they make a car look less attractive by taking away all the nice elegant details.

  • Lariv

    This looks like a bit of a disappointment compared to the concept car, they seem to have got rid of all the cool bits like the exhaust pipes, bottom grille, mirrors and headlights. Like the convertible the blue also looks a bit big and heavy on those small wheels, hopefully the M-Sport will be more aggressive looking.

  • bago

    Exactly. Headlights are just TERRIBLE. they made car look like somebody with dawn syndrome from certain angles. honestly I’ve been bmw fan for long years and currently own previous 6 series and while that car isn’t much of looker on photos, I love it in person. hope this is the case as well but I’m little bit pessimistic. Headlights big F

    humongousaur!!!!

  • StraightSix

    In reality it will be pretty noticable I think, much thanks to the fact that there won’t be many. Especially in more aggresive bright colors, like dark red.

  • Geoff

    Seriously. All the new bimmers look like fat walruses. The front is so comical and cartoonish. Doesn’t look like a car. More like an children’s anime movie character. Everything is looking more and more japanese.

  • Efoza

    As a BMW fan I am really sorry to say this but the new 6 is just dead boring. BMW could have come up with an all new design rather than just doing a face lift on the current 7 year old model.

    The only one worth going for in my view would be the 6 GT or GC (whatever it will eventually be called).

    • wazon8

      How can you say that this car looks like facelift of previous model? It’s not even simiar.

  • viper

    well that does it , this car looks outdated and worse than cabrio , I like the bangle sixer , this SUCKS

  • Yee

    Man… that’s one ugly looking car. I can’t believe they made such a horrible-looking car… :O

    It just looks like a dumb-drunk donkey…

  • viper

    horrible design.
    if the grills were bigger , if the head lights were designed with just a little bit more imagination and just a little bit more aggressive bumper then..

  • x.driver

    Very elegant! Believe me guys, this baby looks marvelous in flesh.

    I think the new 6 Series looks better than before..and all its LED angel eye headlights and LED tails look very nice.
