When ready, the 6 Series GT is to replace the slow selling 5 Series GT and will offer a more luxurious experience. By the looks of this test mule, it seems closer to the final production model, and is seen sporting an M Sport package that’s expected to be on the options list. The obvious giveaway being the chunky air vents in the front bumper and the blue brake callipers.
Despite being extensively camouflaged, one can easily make out that the fascia will be similar to the latest 5 Series saloon. Thanks to being underpinned by the CLAR platform, BMW will be able to shave a considerable amount of weight from their 6 Series GT (compared to the 5 Series GT), despite the larger proportions. Sources suggest that the BMW 6 Series GT will be available in a range of petrol and diesel mills including the 3.0-litre inline-six borrowed from the 750d, and the biturbo 4.4-litre V8 from the 650i.
There’s no confirmation about when the 6 Series GT will debut, however, expect it to roll into showrooms internationally in the first half of 2018.
