I see a mix of various cars in this model. Especially, the rear fender seems like the 2009 Acura RL.
Pretty aggressive looks,none-the-less.

Engine options will likely carry over from the current 6-Series, but the 360 hp 4.8-liter V8 will be replaced by the new 400 hp twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 from the new 7-Series. The M6 is also expected to drop its V10 engine with 500 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque for a slightly retuned version of the X5 M and X6 M's new 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with 555 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque.

Lovely rear.ugly front end. Don't know how BMW is planning on marketing that. Knowing Beemer, it'll still sell!! if they can sell the X3 , selling this is no big deal.

This looks like a 7 series cabriolet!After Bangle BMW has become ultra conservative in design terms.

Rest assured it'll have more than a passing resemblance to the handsome Gran Coupe concept.

I hate how the bonnet line is located just above the grill, when it ideally should run along the top of the grill. It looks like a bad aftermarket job. Same goes for the new 5 series.

Maybe i'm getting old and getting me to sit up and take notice is getting tough. But the first thought after looking at the pics was "So???"..
