Word is BMW will produce a 6er Gran Turismo. Find out the rumor's source inside.
Could BMW have a BMW 6-Series Gran Turismo concept ready to go for the Paris Motor Show? Citing an accidental disclosure by BMW development head Dr. Klaus Draeger, AutoExpress says the shooting brake 6er has already been constructed.
The magazine says the design was created by BMW exec Adrian van Hooijdonk, the man responsible for the 3er coupe and the 6er. Van Hooijdonk, who also works on the looks of the MINI and Rolls-Royce, is believed by many to also have inspired the Bangle Butt look of some current BMW models.
Van Hooijdonk is believed to be basing the style of the car on the Gran Coupé concept from the Beijing Motor Show. Once the 6-Series GT is unveiled, public reaction would dictate if it is produced, and in how many units. Still, AutoExpress says the Gran Coupé will go into production with or without the 6er GT, and will be targeted at customers of the Mercedes CLS.
