"The Best-Looking BMW in Years"

Motor Authority has the key photos of the 2011 BMW 6-series.

BMW’s next-generation 6-Series isn’t due to be unveiled until the 2011 Geneva Auto Show but prototypes for the new car are already testing in Europe and have been captured by spy photographers on a number of occasions. Like the recently launched 2010 Z4, the new 6-Series is expected to feature a folding metal hard-top, making it both a coupe and a convertible.

As for the car’s styling, not much is known although the original BMW CS Concept from 2007 is expected to play an influential role. Speaking with reporters at last month’s 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show, BMW’s U.S. chief Jim O’Donnell has boasted that “the next 6-series is the best-looking car that BMW has done in years. It’s really stunning.”

O’Donnell went on to reveal that the car will be “super sleek”, while also admitting that the current model’s Bangle butt has polarized many.

I think a soft-top on a $70,000 vehicle also polarized a few folks.
