The first wallpapers of the new BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe are now online. The first BMW four-dour coupe was unveiled this past weekend and the initial reactions are on the positive side.

BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe will launch in summer of 2012 and will directly compete with the Audi A7, Mercedes-Benz CLS and even at the higher-end with Aston Martin and Maserati.

The 4+1 seat addition to the 6 Series line combines stunning proportions, design and driving dynamics of the 6 Series Coupe with interior room and amenities for up to five passengers.
The new 6 Series Gran Coupe may be viewed as an upscale 5 Series sedan, with the stylistic imprint of the sexy 6 Series Coupe.

    I must say, I was wrong to look at the GC as a 6 series with two extra doors. Sure, the front and back is almost identical, but the side profile is totally unique. It’s a much more emotional design than the six, because it is unexpected. It’s not a sedan, not a coupé but rather a shape all on its own. Fantastic!

      Yes, definitely – the 4 doors do give it a more dynamic, neat shape… Mercedes were onto something with their CLS, which was gorgeous in it own right (unlike the new one)… but the 6 Series Gran Coupe… well, that’s a whole different story :)

    its nice looking car but is it needed? How is it functionally different than a 5 series?
    Or rather, its less functional with that odd rear center console  making it only a 4 seater.

    Its a superfluous  fancy pants odd duck. Maybe it should hav just been saved to be a future 5 series.

    Who is it for?

    I  don think BMW needs to be reactive to what Mercedes or any other manufacturer  has done.

    I think BMW needs to do what it does best . That is, make highly functional,high performing  cars and every once in a while create new categories vehicles like they’ve done with all the X’s.

      6GC is 4+1 seater. It is 10cm longer than 5 series and about 4 cm lower. It is more exclusive and emotional than 5 series. Most will probably buy 5 series, because it’s simply cheaper, so this car will be more rare and exclusive.

    I like this car, but I mean the BMW range is getting crowded with this and the 5 series.
