After rendering the BMW M4 Shooting Brake, the folks over at X-Tomi Design decided to use their Photoshop skills on the M6 Coupe. The result? A BMW M6 Shooting Brake rendering falling under the same “What If” category.
As we mentioned in our previous article, shooting brake is essentially a two-door station wagon. In the premium segment, Mercedes-Benz is currently offering a CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake and a CLA 45 AMG Shooting Brake, while Audi unveiled an Allroad Shooting Brake Concept at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.
Porsche has recently dropped the biggest hint yet that the second-generation Panamera will be offered in a Shooting Brake body style, as shown by the 2012 Sport Turismo concept.
BMW has yet to announce any plans to build a shooting brake model.
Without a doubt, an M car with the proportions, elegance and dynamics of a shooting brake would be an instant fans’ darling, but the limited market and the fear of further dilution of the brand, would most likely impair any plans to build the car.
If the M division were to build a shooting brake, then the BMW M6 Gran Coupe would be the best platform to start with and the car would give the Panamera a run for its money. Add a hybrid system to it with over 600 horsepower, and you have a winner in your hands.
Should BMW build a shooting brake?
