Don't know, maybe it's the colour and the lighting?The workshop like surroundings? It sort of looks like a mock up of a proposal for a design rather than the finished goods.

The huge grille however...
it matches the prototypes exactly 100%.

So BMW probably has finally given up on selling the 7 series anywhere outside China, because that level of Ugliness is hard to imagine to please anyone outside that region of taste;

Headlights look fine to me, but the grille and the chrome trim on the front air dam.... Yikes.

However, ugly apparently hasn't scared people off the 5GT, 3GT, and a couple of Nissans, so....

Did those BMW "GT" models sell anywhere in numbers? Because they are certainly a rare sight where I live, and travelling around in Europe, I wouldn't say they are much more popular elsewhere; And they certainly did not crowd the US last time I visited...

It really is time to fire someone in BMW's styling department.
