After BMW unveiled the Gran Coupe Concept at the Beijing Auto Show, the rumors about a production versionimmediately began. Today those rumors were confirmed: the BMW Gran Coupe concept will go into production in the second quarter of 2012 as a 6-Series model. The production version will compete with models like the Maserati Quattroporte, the Audi A7 and the Porsche Panamera.

The Gran Coupe will be built on the same platform as the current 5-series, 7-series, and 5-Series GT which should make for an easy production. The Gran Coupe will also be powered by the same six- and eight-cylinder petrol and diesel engines as those models.

The Concept Gran Coupe features a long wheelbase, a vaulted bonnet with forward-pointing lines, a set-back greenhouse, a flat silhouette and a coupe-style roof line. The front section is defined by the BMW kidney grille formally separated from other BMW icons such as the headlights and air inlets.

The BMW Gran Coupe should be a quick and easy production for BMW considering all of its borrowed parts from previous models. We should expect a production model fairly soon. Maybe at this year’s Paris Auto Show?

It looks very exclusive and classy on its glossy body paint. Moreover, I noticed that the car lines on its front hood only bring an appeal for this one. However, I’m so curious on its figure performance.

I just love and impressed with the front light and the other features of this car is not impressive at all. The platform is too ordinary and the wheels are ugly, I guess. Maybe they should need to enhance it more.

Best and almost progressive BMW I have seen in a very long time. I can feel its presence and the stance of a good looking uber-saloon car.

Well, it seems that BMW will no longer make a 6-Series Coupe, because the production model will be going to wear the 6-Series badge and to count on there being an M6 version of the Gran Coupe as well.

what’s so strange about is odd that a German company would unveil a car in China to a English-Swedish indie group...but their music is solid...

What a lovely interior! Impressive trim and design. Specially, the two tone dash and steering wheel.
