Thanks in large part to the rousing reaction the BMW Concept Gran Coupe received in Beijing, sources close to BMW have said that the company has finally given the go signal for a production version of the concept, which is now being called the "BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe".

There’s no word yet on when the production version will break cover, but as is the case in the industry, we can probably expect it to make an appearance sometime in the next two years. As a 6 Series, BMW is lining up the Gran Coupe as a soon-to-be-direct competitor of the Mercedes-Benz CLS and the Audi A7, two cars that fall under the category of luxurious four-door coupes with matching driving performance to boot.

We’ll be sure to keep readers posted as soon as new developments regarding the production version of the Gran Coupe come out.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

That’s great! I think that this car will be successful in the market, eventhough they’re not yet sure for this type of concept to go for production.
