Following the BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo and the much rumored 3-Series Gran Turismo, BMW is working on yet another niche model – a shooting brake version of the next-generation 6-Series. Product development chief Dr. Klaus Draeger confirmed that BMW’s design head Adrian van Hooydonk has already worked up a concept design, which may make its debut at the upcoming 2010 Paris Motor Show.
BMW will study public reaction towards the concept at the Paris Motor Show and will decide later whether or not to give the model the green light for production. It is reported that BMW could recycle the Gran Turismo name for the shooting brake 6-Series.
The concept will be based on the Gran Coupe four-door shown at the 2010 Beijing Motor Show earlier this year. Insiders say, that the shooting brake 6-Series model is being studied to widen the appeal of the next-generation 6-Series.
It has been previously reported that Mercedes-Benz is working on a shooting brake version of the next-generation CLS-Class.
