Spotted undergoing durability testing in prototype form, the model is set to mix a new name with more individual styling in a move aimed at distancing it from the 5 Series saloon and Touring.
Sources at BMW’s headquarters in Munich suggest it will adopt the name 6 Series GT and indirectly replace the slow-selling 6 Series Gran Coupe when it goes on sale in 2018. The move suggests it will also adopt higher positioning and pricing.
Although heavy camouflage covers much of the car, a similar front end to that of the 5 Series is visible, while rear-end styling revisions are also apparent. The tail-lights, while mounted higher, also look to have a near identical design to those on the 5 Series.
