Auto Trend bmw new concept

BMW gets its design mojo back with the a sexy new four-door that just redefined the luxury performance category. The low-slung beauty has some of the finest lines we've ever seen on the outside, and a stellar driver-oriented interior. BMW is being mum with what's under the hood, but we're sure Maserati is already sweating.
Do you know that now BMW showed off an updated Concept CS at the New York International Auto Show on Wednesday. the marked the four-seater's North American debut since it was shown off at Shanghai last April in much more concept-like form.
and BMW has taken the wraps off the Concept CS — a new "four-door-coupe" designed to tackle the Mercedes CLS, Porsche Panamera, and Maserati Quattroporte. The car is likely a preview of the recently rumored 8-Series revival, or alternatively a four-door 6-Series. Either way, it points to BMW's future design direction for the company as a whole.

Now The debut of the Concept CS follows a report by German car magazine Auto Zeitung that claimed BMW would launch a four-door coupe using the 8-Series designation, starting with a new 850i.

In June 2006, Germany's Auto Bild ran a cover story on BMW's planned rival to the Mercedes CLS. The magazine claimed the vehicle was the next-generation 6-series, which it says will be offered in two- and four-door variants under the same nameplate.The car's dimensions add fuel to the 8-Series argument. The CS is 200.8 inches long and 78 inches wide — compared to the 7-Series sedan's 198.4 inches of length and 74.9-inch width. The CS is also extremely low — just 53.5 inches high compared to the 7-Series' 58.7 inches. The CS is even shorter than the low slung Mercedes CLS, which is 54.7 inches tall.
