On the Eve of BMW Design Night that took place in Munich, the German firm has confirmed that the Grancoupe will indeed make it to production. The Grancoupe is expected to be sold as the 6-series Grancoupe when it goes on sale in two years time. As a result, the upcoming 6-series will borrow styling touches from the Grancoupe. Most of the design details from the concept like the frameless windows, B-pillar and the styling will be retained for the production model. When launched, it will be marketed as a four door coupe directly aimed at the Audi A7 and Mercedes Benz CLS.
You need to wait till mid-2012 for the official unveiling of the production GranCoupe and wait till end-2012 to drive one. It will be produced at the same line in Dingolfing that produces the 6-series. It is expected to come with a choice of two petrol and two diesel engines in addition to an active-hybrid model.
