BMW 6 Series Coupe Concept revealed before its Paris debut

BMW 6 Series Coupe Concept revealed before its Paris debut

BMW is set to bring quite a lot of new models to the upcoming Paris Motor Show, including the new 2011 X3 crossover. The biggest suprise, however, was revealed yesterday, when the German company presented the new BMW 6 Series Coupe Concept.

Even though it is billed as a design study, you can expect the production version of the 2012 BMW 6 Series, set to be launched in fall of 2011, to look pretty much the same.

That’s not a bad thing though, as the concept takes the design of the well-received BMW Gran Coupe concept, and tones it down with a few cues from the 2011 5 Series. It will share the same platform with the new sedan, while the rear is one of the most aggressive ones we’ve seen so far.

The interior has also been overhauled, with the design playing a bigger role than before. The center console is, as usual, aimed towards the driver, while contrasting material blends the passenger dashboard with the armrest. Customers will be able to choose from a variety of leather types, as well as from different inserts ranging from aluminum to wood.

Expect the BMW 6 Series Coupe Concept in the flesh at the Paris show, while the production version will be revealed next year. The lineup is expected to include the regular coupe, a convertible, the high performance M6 and even a four-door coupe, in the vein of the Gran Coupe Concept. Until then, check it out in the photo gallery below.
