Carscoop has the BMW scoop today: the official patent designs of the upcoming BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe. The leaked patent designs showcase the proportions and design cues of BMW’s four-dour coupe. Compared to the concept version unveiled last year, the drawings show a redesigned front and rear bumpers, which sport re-positioned and re-sized reflectors and different tail pipes.

6 Series Gran Coupe uses the same ‘backbone’ platform that underpins the current 5-series, 7-series and 5 GT. The car will offer the same mix of six- and eight-cylinder petrol and diesel engines as those cars, and an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

The BMW Gran Coupe is labeled as a 4-door coupe type of vehicle with a distinctive sporty character. The Gran Coupe has been designed to combine the abilities of a GT and a sports car. The roof is 100mm lower than the 7 Series models, and its rear quarters slightly more restricted. The concept carries the essence of brand values and the genes of BMW design into the future and the expectations are that these styling cues will turn up all over BMW range in the next few years. The sleek Gran Coupe retain iconic elements like the kidney-grille, Hofmeister kink and a less pronounced shark nose.

The demographic target for this vehicles is well defined already by some of BMW’s competitors: four-door coupe buyers looking for an elegant, sort of extravagant design, luxurious interior and driving performance. Mercedes-Benz CLS and Audi A7 fall under this segment as well.

BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe will make its official debut in 2012.

    Senseless – BMW should focus on design of it’s actual cars – meaning – the new 1 series SUCKS HARD. And why BMW wants the ANOTHER competitor for CLS? BMW made the 5 series GT, which is the ugliest car made by BMW (except the headlights). BMW doesn’t need another “4-door coupe” which is not exactly coupe… God damn it, start to think BMW!

    wow, what an un-inspiring design.  It does not look much better then the 5 series. so whats the point ?
    the concept grand tourismo (not a coupe as it is a 4 door hatchback)  was a great one, this sketch here isn’t.
    An another 4 door hatch that fails to capture the hearth of the original CLS design.

    the concept car looks better. as always. they screw up the final design.
    unbelviable
    this how the 5series should have look like.
    this dont look like a 4door coupe.
    in this segment Id buy Merc cls , old , new doesnt matter , looks ten times better and it is a true beauty.
    bmw…..you are a joke

      I sadly agree on this. the old CLS looks great, the  new one looks good, the A7 looks awesome.
      BMW missed this one segment as their 5GT failed miserably due to the horrible butt ugly design.
      That must be bangle’s left-over which got released after he crawled back to his cave.

      Ever since BMW did better and better cars though.  the new 1 series is ax exception but the 7 5 and X3 are good looking ones and a positively better designs then any of bungle’s.

      This car on the sketches does not look bad, its just too mild after the Grand Tourismo concept. That car was wild and stylish, an elegant, proper BMW hatchback. Not at all like the 5GT which should not exist.
      BMW should have done the CS concept and call it a 5GT. It would have been a major hit and a proper competition to MB Audi and anybody else.. yes even to Porsche and Aston Martin Rapide.
      Imagine a CS concept with the X5M 4.4V8 TT (555+HP)and the new 5/7 interior and a 120k price tag.

      Since Porsche and Aston selling their 4 door cars like they are cheap but stylish cars, I’m sure BMW would have done the same.

      its a shame that we have to look at that ugly 5GT and wonder what it could have been. No point “wondering” though, lets hope this is not the final car, just a early sketch.

    they made the biggest mistake by not building the CS concept car.
    Its ubelivable how stupid that is.
    you have audi a7 and second gen cls , you also have panamera and rapide , only bmw FAILED in this segment.
    this car will suck and this kind of car is all about LOOKS.

    bmw dictionary :_ the word beauty (good looking , sexy car) – error (the word does not exist)

    Well it wont be long, we will be seeing little tiny FINS, yes  fins coming back and this design works. I can see it now little roll fins molded back into a cool downforce spoiler. Get busy BMW you are way ahead now take it to the limit.

    I Just pray to God that everyone can reach there dreams, and own any car they want. But for that to happen is to be able to pay for the educational fees, Even for me in the Netherlands it is damn expensive. U have to  work or or sometimes  stop studying or go back because we just simply cant afford it the fees as foreigner .
    Let hope that sometime in the future we can make our wishes come true,and joy what ever machine u adore, and makes us who we care, but for know this is only fantasy for me.

      Im not 100% sure what are you aiming at but from what Ive seen living in your country is really tough except for those real hard patriots who were born there although there are natives who claim that life there is forgive me , really sitty..
      the cars you drive are below average. so this bmw 6er gc or whatever new m5 or new e500 is really a rarity on the roads! , rare you see a great car , brand new car from production year 2010….
      alot of jap. and korean cars m really bad ones , a lot of small cars really dominate.

      to have a big sedan or a powerful SUV or whatever something around 80k really doesnt make much sense. you cant drive these cars there. your freeways are jammed and cant even compare with ones in Germany or France.
      really stop dreaming , just move to other country where your salary will be not doubled but triple and live life.

        I take offense what ur trying to say. I’m not Dutch.
        BUT when u compare The US to Europe,.. As a teacher from the Webster University told us was that in the Europe you work to live and US you live to work. Here you work form 9:00AM to 5:00PM its more chilled out,. and in the evening you go to the beach and have ur evening time.

        The Cars here are mostly  European,..lol,..and as for the Cabs,..there mostly Mercedes,..XDDD. Well you can see amazing cars like M3,..or E500 or the M5 can be found in abundance,.. check out markt plaats,..n the population here is 16million only XDD,.. its a small country but they are the 3rd largest donates to the EU.

        The whole point of my previous msg was that companies like BMW,AUDI,Apple,Google exist to sell products to individuals. We can buy these cars with the help of a Bachelor degree or Masters, or even doctors or unless ur part of family fortune.XDD

        U can drive them anywhere if u afford 80K’s lol.  Germany is 1 hour and a half away from here,..lol n for what it is worth we can not compare a country to another. it is just not right, specially if u haven’t seen it in person. 

        They say the person is most successful when he has a dream or a vision otherwise there no point in living and i wouldn’t be having an internship at Google Amsterdam right now,.. its a long shot but hey it may happen;)

          what your teacher told you doesnt have to be true. see it for ur self.
          its ture u work from 9 to 5 and then you go home. sit there and dont do anything . either you jog or take ur dog and cat out , life there is just miserable. been there. what beach? evening time? what getting high and drink beer?
          have party in home by 11?
          the cars there are mostly european , but mostly badly , small shitty cars . been there you know for no luxury , small hoses , weird lifestyle , weird people , weird politics , not a nice place to live. trust me.

    Simply, design is a matter of taste. What you like is what you like, nobody bothers… In my opinion, this concept is a very good looking car and I really like it. I’d choose this over the new CLS or the A7, despite the old CLS being much more a like a coupe.

    bland bland bland…what’s happening to BMW??i would rather buy a CLS or A7…dont care what engienes this will have..BMW is capable of much better styling (Z4) but instead they make crap like this…whats happening??if it didnt have the fancy lights this wouldnt turn any heads…comeon BMW you can do much better

    The front and rear look great. The side profile looks great EXCEPT for the roof. The roof looks to similar to a standard 5er. It’s boring looking and doesn’t fit unto this car in terms of design. But maybe  we need to wait until we see pictures instead of blueprints.
