I am stunned. This car is amazing looking. BMW is definitely heading towards a simplistic style design of their newer cars (new 7, 5, etc.) However, even without their controversial Bangle designs, they still have that bmwness (as Jeremy Clarkson puts it lol)

hhmmm..

I don't know if I like it yet. It's hard to see the detailed shapes and curves with the dim lighting. Personally, I would of loved for it to look a little more aggressive. Lets hope an M version gets launched at some point. If BMW is to dethrone the Panarema they need to come more correct than this.

It's like a more generic, less good looking version of the Concept CS with updated brightwork.

I also love the fact that the taillight detailing is near identical to the floating LED lights of the Vision EfficientDynamics concept.

Nice concept but now I am just as confused about BMW as I am about Mercedes' 4 door coupe. This is hot but it has an element of safety ... maybe if they used a different colour the lines and "grandness" of this car would be more apparent. Now the 5 and 7 look old.

Beijing-The Rush is On

Every major auto company in the world is shifting emphasis towards China. This year more new cars will be sold there than the U.S. BMW is no exception and they have a lot of catching up to do. As a result the Gran Sport makes its debut.

I'm confused, the 6 was a two door 5 series -- then whats this? And how the heck is it any different than the incoming 5 series? Things are getting too confusing -- I understood the X6 and even the 5GT but now a slightly coup-ish 4 door 6 series thats kinda but not really a 5 series? Really?
CLS 550 BMW style?

+1000.

I had the same thought as well. I wish they would have used some other color which would show the curves of this 4 door coupe more.

And I'm a little disappointed with the back. It looks bla.
