Gran Coupe video under Camo
After some time from the speculatory 6 series Gran Coupe concept pics, we finally get a look at some of the lines and features of BMW's 6'er 'sedan'.
This new 6 actually utilizes the 5 series platform, coming in at a 116.8" wheelbase and a 74.9" track. BMW has also lowered the car a whopping 3.5" to add to that sporty feel and look to compete with the GT and sports car segments. The car is a staggering 197.1", making it 2" longer than a CLS. Interestingly enough, the hood and front doors are actually made out of aluminum, in order to lighten the weight.
I prefer the concept images over the car in the video, in some respects, but overall, I'm not complaining about the style itself. I don't like the exhaust pipes, and I don't like the LED line for blinkers under the headlights. I really see bits of the 7 in the front end, and in my opinion, the 7 isn't the most elegant of BMW's.

Would take this over the CLS any day. The M6 version of the Gran coupe is going to be mental.
