And the list of rather odd new models just keeps on getting longer and longer. There’s a word going around about how BMW is considering a new 6 Series spin-off.
After the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe, it seems that BMW will once again go after a niche product created by the rivals at Mercedes.
The three pointed star has only just revealed an estate version of their CLS four door coupe, something they call the Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake.
According to the reports, the Bavarians plan to make a new model they’ll call the new creation the BMW 6 Series Gran Touring.
Theophiluschin even came up with a brand new set of renderings to what this new model could end up looking like.
It seems that all these new rumors are actually a resurfacing of the older idea of BMW creating a 6 Series Shooting Brake that originally came about some two years ago.
Back then, it all started with BMW’s head of development, Dr. Klaus Draeger, who then said that the Bavarians are considering such a model.
This actually happened before the 6 Series Gran Coupe had been unveiled. Back then all we had is a BMW 6 Series GC concept.
Obviously, while they were making rumors, the guys over at theophiluschin didn’t stop at the basic idea. They actually went on to say that BMW is also going to be developing a BMW M6 Gran Coupe.
Guess what twin-turbo 4.4 liter V8 engine developing 560 horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque is allegedly going to power that version.
