BMW Revealing Next-Gen 6-Series in Paris

Thinly disguised “concept” coupe among unveilings scheduled for debut at 2010 Mondial de l'Automobile.

An all-new version of the BMW 6-Series debuts in concept form at the Paris Motor Show.

Call it a “show car,” if you wish, but the BMW Concept 6 Series Coupe making its debut at the Mondial de l’Automobile, next week, is little more than a thinly-disguised version of the next-generation BMW 6-Series, the maker’s premium 2+2 seater.

The genesis of the show car will be readily apparent to anyone who makes it to the 2010 Paris Motor Show, at least if these advanced-release pics are any indication.  The sheet metal is a little more elegant and subtle than the prior model, which went out of production earlier this month.  Four character lines give the new coupe shape and dimension.

There’s also less of the so-called “Bangle-butt,” the high rear deck nicknamed for former BMW design chief Chris Bangle, who introduced the wind-cheating shape on the 7-Series a decade ago.  The overall look, with the addition of 20-inch wheels, is sporty and aggressive.  While the tail is vaguely reminiscent of the 5-Series GT, the concept is decidedly coupe- rather than crossover-like.

The thinly-disguised 6-Series coupe should soon reach production.
