The Rolls is a Rolls and not a Bentley.
I think by looking at the wheels of the 6 that it is an M6 Gran Coupe. The car still tests even after launch up to press launch. I have seen a 650d which will be evident by its M-Sport aeropacket and M Performance alloys.

Little piece of trivia for you all. Every car in that compound will eventually be crushed.

Scott, very interested to hear your impressions of the 3GT after your trip - your questions are exactly what I am wondering; ie, if it handles like a 3er with a little more luxury interior, that could be a winner - from the pics I actually thought the M Sport looked ok, though always hard to tell until you see it in the metal!

Very much looking forward to hearing your impressions.
So far I have not had the opportunity to properly exploit the car as we will be leaving in around two hours from now. but my first impressions are very impressive , its still a 3er but with added individuality and flexibility.

The car is very quiet in that it is well insulated to keep road noise to a bare minimum, it is almost similar to a 3er in how it drives if not a little more refined and just as quick. I ran a 320d till around this time last year till June and was impressed by the overall competency , I am hoping the 3er GT will return the same.
The interior is first rate , there is higher standard of leather and individual stitching to lift the interior from its 3er origins. Cargo space is impressive but it is fitted with the roof attatched ski-rack. It will certainly be a talking point at its destination.

The M-Sport Packet is stunning in reality. The wheels seen in the scooped LA picture are the optional 19"over the standard 18".
Scott, thanks for that insight on the 3GT. My interest is growing; I'm going to need something bigger than my 1M and while I realise it's apples / oranges, there is something about this upcoming 3GT that has me keenly observing news as it comes to hand. Enjoy Switzerland and the holidays!

BMW should either; make the car a bit longer, stretch the roofline a bit (like the 4-Coupé), or reduce the height of the side-panels of the car (from the windows to the ground basically).
UM...that's what I like about the 1 series, it's beefy sporty looking, not all elongated and thin like the other cars in the lineup :/

I wonder if the front will look anything like this, those lights look pretty sleek on the prototype...
No i'm not feeling that at all!

Don't like the mirrors. Downgrade from the E82/E88. I hope the side panels design scheme is similiar to the 4 series coupe design. It better be...if it looks bland compared to the E82/E88 then I'll just keep my 1er (I can opt to buy out my E88 in July)...and settle for a z4 several years from now.

LOL the front of that render looks terrible. Some car "faces" looks like they're smiling, some look angry, some look aggressive, some look surprised. I've never seen one that looked retarded until this render.
Haha bmw //M Down syndrome package

That's exactly what it did cost...right around $46,000 with only one or two options available beyond that. I know because it was announced 3 weeks after I took delivery of my 2011 135i and I was talking with my dealer about potentially ordering one but, as you know, they were marked up like crazy and I couldn't even find one. (not that I could afford it anyways)

That belongs in a Pixar Cars movie.
