I like that they incorporated the old "shark nose" design aspect.

I see a lot of CS and Vision Connected Drive in it... Not bad. That being said it isn't especially great either. Which is what you usually get from an Italian design house when you aren't Ferrari or Alfa.

This design exercise looks like it was completed in 2006 and yesterday they installed a 2013 steering wheel from the M6.

Looks malignant

It's probably the foundation for the next 7/8 series

The front looks like a grandfather version of the 1 series coupe

I'd rather have the wraith and would take a panny turbo s over this in this price range if this study did make it to production in the G series

And as said above looks like their are some retro design cues prob paying homage to the past

Is this going to really be a production car?

BMW channelling Lincoln.

I am not sure of the exterior - but some of the detailing could well make the new 6er look the business (except that awful rear end)

The interior is a fantastic improvement in refinement and luxury.

Its a one-off. Thank god for that.

I don't think it's ugly. I rather like somewhat, but not as much as the upcoming 4 series. I like the rather comic book character it has though.

What I don't like is that the wood trim inside has no contrast with the leather.

I'm thinking FIAT/Maserati paid Pininfarina to make this as ugly as possible.

Not impressed at all.

BMW's version of MB CL - classy old man's car that's boring.

I am surprised by how conventional the interior was as if they didn't give much thought. Given that this is a one-off, I would expect to see the interior design to push the envelop.

BMW needs 8 series (and a bigger roadster). Period.
Mercedes has CL, SL, G and all these cars start over $100k. BMW has none (except some M models)
