Well, this head to head is still very much hypothetical, but the recently revealed BMW Concept Gran Coupe is a car hatched to directly compete with the successful Mercedes Benz CLS. The CLS itself is being updated this year, with the new model already seen and set to be officially launched very soon. BMW for its part has been leaking word that the stunningly beautiful Concept Gran Coupe has been green lit for production and will likely slot inside of the 6-Series family.
The next generation BMW 6-Series (designated as F12 for the Coupe and F13 for the Cabriolet editions) has been ramping up its facetime with the cameras. Thankfully, so far the car has been absolutely stunning from any angle its been photographed at so far, but dont take my word for it, you can see all the photos in our on-going coverage of the car: http://www.bimmerpost.com/6-series.
Just to re-cap the all new 6-Series is said to arrive … CONTINUED
We bring you the first photos of 6-series convertible test cars in different colors and configurations. Previously, only a milano beige F13 6-series has been spotted, but we now see the stunning convertible in both silver (650i) and red color (640i). The silver 650i wears some beautiful wheels weve not yet seen, which transforms the whole look of the car (for the better), in our opinion.
Here is the BMW announced production schedule for the F12 / F13 6-series coupe and … CONTINUED
Resident photoshop guru Gerald Alvarez digitally strips away the remaining camoflage on the F13 2011 6-series convertible, revealing what we think will be a gorgeous drop top 6-series.
From Autoblog.com: What you see above is a BMW 6 Series – but just barely. Since leaving Munich, it’s been transformed into the B6 by Alpina, then into the race-spec B6 GT3, and is now in the process of being converted to top-tier GT1 spec by yet another company, Aurora Racing Designs.
The motorsport concern is a joint effort by former McLaren engineer Nicholas Galbraith and former Alpina racing designer Andreas Puschel. Together they’re taking the development of the B6 GT1 off Alpina’s hands so that the … CONTINUED
Well, here is what appears to be a homebrew video shot on the photographers way to the Nurburgring. He does an excellent job of shooting the 6-series and giving a nice level of depth to the previously seen spyphotos currently available ( http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=393022 ).
The next generation 6-series ( http://www.bimmerpost.com/6-series ) has been quickly shedding its camoflague in the typical BMW strip tease that presages an online reveal and then subsequent auto-show world premiere. … CONTINUED
Resident photoshopper extraordinaire, Gerald Alvarez, has put together this new rendering of the upcoming F12 6-series coupe based upon the newest F13 6-series convertible photos and the BMW Concept Gran Coupe (which was said to be an approximation of what the 2012 6-series coupe will resemble).
We bring you the first photos of the F13 6-series convertible confirming that the 2012 6-series convertible will indeed have a traditional folding soft top (but a factory fitted optional hardtop will be available). These 650 convertible photos are also the most revealing yet of the body, which loses its plastic camoflage cladding to reveal most of the production body. What’s being revealed slowly is a stunning looking BMW which retains the shape and sleekness of the previous 6-series cabrio, while losing some of … CONTINUED
The current BMW monthly production bulletin reveals some details on the new 6-series (F12/F13) and the upcoming X3. Production starts on the 650 convertible in March 2011 and 650 coupe in July 2011. Sept. will see a 6-cylinder 640 coupe and convertible and 650xi coupe and convertible. X3 production begins this December.
We bring you the first ever sighting of the upcoming F13 6-series convertible with its top down. The shape revealed with the top down is of a sleek and well proportioned convertible, not easily pulled off with a convertible of this size. What is not telling yet however, is whether the top is a folding hardtop or a traditional canvas top. The extra cut lines on the trunk may indicate a canvas top to some, but may simply be indicative of split trunk access … CONTINUED
Until now, weve only had one small little glimpse of the BMW 6 series interior with a short statement from BMW insider Scott that in essence alluded to the interior being a mix of the Z4 with the F10 5-series. Taking the best from both world would really create the ultimate interior environment. With these new photos we see a little bit more of the center console and it does look like the interior really will be a mixing of the two, from these … CONTINUED

According to BMW insider SCOTT26, the Gran Coupe has already been approved for production, with a standard model available for completion in a short time frame.

Resident photoshopper Alpine325ci has taken yet another stab at the upcoming 6-series, this time gleaning information from the recently revealed Gran Coupe Concept car which is believed to foretell the 6-Series lineup.
