I am not a BMW fan…which is why I have two in my driveway.
There were some big changes here at Casa Negro in the last year. The biggest, by far, was the one that ended in us being the custodians of a 95lb lab/pit bull puppy. Since our biggest car was a Mini Cooper S Clubman, this was not the best situation. To remedy it I did the most logical thing I could, I bought a Canyonero:
So, BMW decided to jump on the hot “four door coupe” bandwagon that its European competition has been pushing for years now. It decided to do it with this, the Six series Gran Coupe, making a sedan out of a coupe. Brilliant. Except for one small detail, the Six series is already a coupe based on a sedan, the Five series. So, what they’ve done is given the Five series a slightly less formal roofline and called it a new model.
Oh wait, they did that, already, too.
So now we have four cars based on the same platform, two of which that look pretty much the same, one of which is an abomination against good design and on that has two doors.
Really? Is there a hair left after all of that splitting?
Not really, but there you go, the new BMW Six Series Gran Coupe, a Five with less rear head room. Exactly what the world needed.
