New BMW 6 Series revealed
* BMW releases images of coupe 'concept' * Production car will differ little * Coupe, convertible and four-door on the way...
This is the all-new BMW 6 Series Coupe, which will go on sale in the UK next summer after its debut at the Paris motor show next week.
It closely resembles the four-door Gran Coupe design study displayed at the Beijing motor show earlier this year and, although it's still described as a concept car, it will change little by the time it hits the showroom.

A convertible version of the car is expected to go on sale in the spring, followed by the coupe later in the summer. The four-door flagship previewed by the Gran Coupe is planned for 2012.
The coupe and convertible are around the same length as the current model, but wider and lower. There are no details on engines, but expect efficient, high-output petrol and diesel drivetrains as well as super-fast range-topping M models.
Prices are expected to start at around 55,000.
