First Look: BMW Concept 6 Series Coupe

Sorry, BMW; we're going to have to blog about this -- the first look at the all-new 6 Series coupe is destined to be revealed under the bright lights of the 2010 Paris Motor Show.

Honoring its coupe tradition, BMW took its current 6 Series and gave it a newly sculpted body. The 6 Series Coupe concept evokes the image of the Gran Coupe presented to us at the Beijing auto show, less two doors, but offers the same compelling presence. It's softer than the current 6 Series but still emits a strong presence from front to back.

The headlights are the first from the Bavarian team to mate an all-LED setup with the familiar twin-round design. LEDs can be found everywhere illumination is desired, including the main lights, daytime running lights, foglights, and signal indicators. LED light strips, which continue to grow in popularity and application, are attached to the concept's front face. In addition to consuming less power, BMW is pleased to announce its Adaptive Headlight function will change the light spray depending on steering angle and vehicle speed. Drivers will only need to remember to look through the turn.

The side features four flowing lines to give the lengthy body substance while unique 20-inch alloy wheels sport a one-off design. The Concept 6 Series Coupe's new presence stretches to the rear, where the L-shaped, LED taillights look similar to the 5 Series Gran Turismo. Like the front, the rear fascia gives off a hunkered-down look to round out the wide, low body package. Trapezoidal exhaust outlets are another appearance distinction.

Ummmm not a fan and disappointed. To be honest, it looks like a gussied-up Oldsmobile Alero and I'm not even trying to be insulting.All that while seriously looking forward to the next gen 6-series even though I have no actual interest in buying one.However, it does look unique compared to the usual BMW design theme. Too bad its Oldsmobile Alero unique.
