Not looking likely:

The basic concept shape should remain but the little details like cray bumpers and large rims will not be present. Once the camo starts to come off, we'll know how close it is to the concept.

More pics, including the interior (which doesn't look that far removed from a production car... not surprisingly):

More "Lexus" than "BMW".

This is a very stunning vehicle. My only complaints would be regarding the thin headlights, and that the front end is too low hanging, if that makes sense. I'm mostly attracted to everything behind the A-pillar. The rear end on this thing is beautiful

It's more production ready than in other bmw concepts, so a new aspect if you ask me.

This looks like a caricature of the current 6 Series and that was a caricature of the Bangle mess. They should have built the Gran Lusso concept of several years back because that was absolutely gorgeous.

You would be surprised at how many things these two cars share. All detailing is the same, just on different proportions. I guess they made their research and this is the outcome.

I have to agree. For a BMW, it's lovely, although the front is more OK that great, and I'm not convinced that the design is stunning enough for the likely price tag.
