2011 BMW 6 Series – Click above to watch video after the jump

The BMW 6 Series could probably be considered long overdue for a serious makeover, and this one looks to be it. We got spy shots before, but an intrepid user at the Bimmerpost forum has tracked the thing with a video camera, and the rolling stock looks like it will add to the 6 line. Notice the front is much sleeker, and we're especially interested in how the rear seems angled slightly upward.

Power from the new 7 Series engines will keep the action brisk, as you'll see in the vid, but we still aren't sure how (or if) BMW plans to get an R8 fighter out of this. Follow the jump for two minutes of spy action.

      I think it basically looks like it's going to be a bigger z4 which probably will not be as bad as the current one.

      Hopefully BMW will also debut a more spartan but nonetheless comfortable interior.

        Low rating, hmm...maybe I should have said BMW needs to debut a more cluttered, complex dash with buttons galore and multiple screens to touch. Yeah, that's it. That's what autoblogs readers like in their cars.

      If this really is their answer to the R8 then I think BMW is starting to get the Nurburgring confused with the Rhine.

      The proportions remind me of a Chevy Monte Carlo.

        I'm seeing Mustang in the roofline and rear end profile as well.

        yeah, me too

        i think it's the overhangs - somehow they look huge for a RWD
        I'm usre it wont look like a monte carlo, but those overhangs better be gone
