Leaked: BMW Gran Coupe renderings hit the web
Ever since the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class revolutionized the automobile industry with its ground breaking design, other companies have capitalized on their success by adapting their own versions with great results. Some include the Volkswagen Passat CC, the new Audi A7, even the new Hyundai Sonata.
And while the “four-door” coupe design has been around for some time, BMW might’ve just jumped on board according some rumors. Some renderings were found that resembled much of the Gran Coupe concept that debuted at the 2010 Beijing Auto Show and it is established that the car’s production is under way. The car in the pictures seem fairly straight forward: it looks like an elongated and more streamlined F10 5er with the nose of a F12/F13 6er.

I absolutely love nearly every current example of a four-door coupe because the proportions often make the cars that much more interesting. And since the Gran Turismo 5er is struggling heavy under sales, this new Gran Coupe doesn’t seem like such a bad idea since these four-door coupes are the one of the new trendy “things” today. I’m not complaining. Not to mention, it shouldn’t rack up too much of a bill for the Munich make because it could share platforms and engines as well as other parts with other cars. And with the CLS63 and the Audi S7 on the way…can we see a CLS63, Audi introduce an RS7, and have BMW make an M Gran Coupe and see them duke it out? Keep it coming Bimmer.
The BMW Gran Coupe is reported to enter production sometime next year.
