BMW have just lifted the veil of the heavily guarded design of the upcoming 2012 6 Series. This, the now third generation of 6 Series has a lot to live up to after the successes of the Big Six E24 6 Series and the sleek, elegant E63/64 6 Series – which has just left production.

In looking at these new photos the 2+2 layout coupe much of its design cues from the big CS Concept launched in Shanghai – though the 6 Series will retain the two door design with the forthcoming Gran Coupe carrying the 4-door design. Other updates worth mentioning are the front fascia and lines of the 6 Series bearing heavy resemblence to the F01 7 Series – reaffirming BMW’s choice of conservative design juxtaposed to the outgoing 6 Series with its radical, Bangle-influenced design.

Moving to the interior, the 6 Series continues to impress with a full Bang & Olufsen stereo system and revised iDrive screen, providing a more fluid design to the flow of the dash.


However, while I am sure that you all would love to hear me describe the 2012 6 Series in high detail we will let the pictures do the talking as well as the BMW press release below. Watch this space for more on the 2012 6 Series as we will provide in-depth analysis on this new and exciting model.
