BMW is expected to debut 2012 6 Series at Shanghai Motor Show this spring.
After months of spy photos trickling down the tubes, it looks like we might just get to meet the next BMW 6 Series Coupe in person very soon. That's the rumor, anyway.
Check out yesterday's post from our friends at Autoblog.com:
Word has it that BMW is planning to unveil the next 6 Series coupe at the upcoming Shanghai Motor Show in April. According the Dutch arm of AutoWeek, it only makes (sense) for the big two door to take a bow this spring since the concept version debuted at the 2010 Pairs Motor Show last fall. Given that we've seen more than a few spy photos crop up recently, the prediction would seem spot-on.
The report says that buyers can first expect to get their hands on the coupe in either 640i or 650i variants with additional models showing up later down the line. But that's not the most interesting bit of news to pop up.
AutoWeek is also reporting that BMW is currently slaving away on a sedan version of the 6 Series. Supposedly, the car would make use of the same coupe body lines as its two-door brethren. Such a vehicle would allow BMW to tango with the ever-popular Mercedes-Benz CLS, but we have to wonder if there's room in the Roundel's stable for yet another sedan.
End of article.
