Spy photographers just spotted the new BMW 6 Series Coupe without any camouflage. The 2012 6er Coupe is set to launch this fall, shortly after the convertible model is introduced.
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.
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.
BMW’s Chief Designer Adrian van Hooydonk describes the front-end as “a shark-like nose” with a slightly forward-leaning kidney grille and a full-width air duct within the lower part of the bumper. 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.
In 2012, BMW will introduce two new members of the 6 Series family, the M6 and the new four-dour Gran Coupe. When it goes on sale later this year, the 6 Series Coupe is expected to be priced slightly below $90,000.
