UPDATE: Check out live shots of the BMW Concept CS
click above image to view our BMW Concept CS gallery and click here for live shots

Love it or hate it (and based on your comments, lovers seem to have a slight edge), the new BMW CS Concept has drawn a lot of attention. So when additional photos of the big "coupe" popped up overnight, we decided to pass them along. A couple dozen more media shots show concept sketches and a few more angles of this potential new 8-Series flagship. You can read our original post here, and the gallery is accessible below. Finally, if you're interested in some LIVE shots, our colleagues from Autoblog Chinese have just set up a gallery full of many shots from the show floor.

      It's a concept, so I'm not believing that everything will emerge from the factory. Some of the styling bits are striking, but that rear fender crease reminds of me of the mid-60s Plymouth Valiant my grandfather drove.

      As for weight, this thing will be in the same fat club as the MB sedans, which is OK. But the 3-series has just become a bloat-mobile.

      Audi's designs are timeless. Classy, sexy, and the antithesis of BMWs' designs. That said, Audis are not fun to drive and are even porkier than BMWs.

      FWIW, I've owned 3 BMWs in the past 4 years and we currently have a late model Bimmer and Audi at home. I'm not a hater of either side - bought both brands. But that doesn't change the facts. BMWs = fun to drive, horrid to look at of late (my 03 e46 ZHP was sexy though). Audi's timeless, gorgeous, great interior but egad what a slappy driving car.

      Is this supposed to be an indication of the X6 or is this something else altogether?

      When the current 7-Series arrived, I thought that Bangle had lost his mind and should return home to Wisconsin where we have some very nice treatment facilities. However, as those cars and SAV's since have evolved, I see that he was not insane but bordering on genius. His designs have been repeatedly copied and BMW sales continue to break record after record. This CS concept is nothing short of amazing. It's the car that Ian Callum should have penned as the next Jaguar XJ.

      are you kidding me!!!...like cant u see the beauty in this car !!! ive never seen anything as boss-luxury and as cool as this car. it just screams Miami king Pin!!. imagine it in white. maybe u guys aren't seeing the silver chips that say bmw in the eyebrow section of the headlights, You have to incorporate them into the entire overall design.And the sports ring wrapped bulbs!!! its soo amazing.

      you are as just disgusted and mad at it.thats what revolutionary design is..it hits u so hard that just u hate it(thats why some of history's best artists came be murdered). Bangle is turning around ,these recent bmw designs are amazing( new 3 series coupe and above.

      I know It looks like a car copying other great designs ( Maserati, aston) but trust me it is it's own car and its beautiful and it is classic bmw. I believe it would be a wise decision to put it into production if i was bmw. they need too if they need to keep up with Audi's current onslaught on the market.
      maybe seeing it in person would help reinforce my point. any ways those were my two cents.

      Someone is always goign to compare some car to some other car. Quit complaining, you most likely can't afford a BMW anyway...I can't wait for this car, I've already told my dealer it won't make it to their showroom floor. IT'S MINE!!!!!

      Front end is flat-out awful, everything else is fine except wheels.

      I have a feeling the only reason people would praise this design is because it has a BMW badge stuck on it. If it were a Pontiac (which I think is what Bangled cars look anyway), people would be tearing it apart saying how talent-less American car designers are.

      I see what they were trying to do (Quattroporte-ish front end, muscular profile, etc), but it's just not elegant. It's "edgy" to the point of being just gaudy and cheesy.

      And I disagree about Bangle making more nice designs, as influential as he is. The cars worth looking at are the 3 series coupe/sedan and X5. The rest (esp. the 5 and 7 series) are trash. Then again, people don't buy BMW so much for style or performance as to brag to the rest of the world that they can burn money.

      the creases have definitely been toned down a bit. the rocker overpowers the character line in the shoulder. The kick in the line on the rear door, the blunt profile of the face make it appear very muscle car-like. Doesn't present any new ideas, but a solid design nonetheless - a bit easier to love then other bmw concepts

      now that is the ultimate driving machine. WOW groundbreaking, classic bmw. Ive been waiting for so long for that.

      Wretched. The car fell off the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.

      Hey, BMW, here's a suggestion: instead of wasting resources on newer/uglier cars, try taking existing models and getting them out to the consumer at much lower curb weights? 3600 lbs for a 335 sedan/coupe is ridiculous...it's no longer a compact sport sedan. Aim for 3k lbs, kids...then go lower. Even the e9x M3 is gonna be a piggy tank on wheels. We can only imagine how portly the pictured monstrosity will be.

      Low and wide ,ultra high performance 4 place luxury car.Seems like a new segment to me(Porsche Panamera's influence already?).But bring 'em on.the 4 door performance sedan category hasn't been shaken up in eons.
