Thumbs up Next 6-series proclaimed by BMW North America Chief to be "best-looking BMW in years"

Wondering what the next 6-series coupe and convertible may look like? While he doesn't provided much specific styling details, the BMW NA Chief, Jim O'Donnell, doesn't mince words in proclaiming that it will be the "best-looking BMW in years."

He amusingly compares the future 6-series and current 6-series by admitting that the current design is a polarizing one because of its "Bangle butt" and that the next generation will instead be "super sleek" It's expected to debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show in March 2011.

The "best-looking BMW in years" says U.S. chief

On the eve of the Frankfurt Motor Show, BMW North American chief Jim O’Donnell tells Automobile Magazine that the next 6-series coupe and convertible will be radically different from the current cars’ styling. “In my opinion,” says O’Donnell, “the next 6-series is the best-looking car that BMW has done in years. It’s really stunning.”

O’Donnell further states that the current 6-series is very “polarizing” due to it “really having a Bangle butt.” The new 6-series, which we’ll likely see in 1.5 years at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show in March 2011 is, on the other hand, “super sleek.” Designed under the direction of Chris Bangle’s successor, Adrian van Hooydonk, the next-generation 6-series will retain the general size of the current car but clearly will be considerably more svelte looking.

In other future-product news, O’Donnell confirmed that the new 5-series will be shown at the 2010 Geneva Show next March.

Can't wait to see it. I was always a huge fan of the current 6. I can understand it may be polarizing but I love it.

I would seriously consider the next 6 for a future car if I like it.
