You know the new 6GT isn't the replacement of the previous 6GC right...

The replacement of the 6GC will be the 8GC.
The 6GT is the replacement of the previous 5GT.

Either way, I think all of these cars are beautiful in their own regards.

i hate how generic looking the 8 series is. just a huge 4 series with a few weird body panels on it.

Thanks for sharing.

Any idea of the wheels of the 8 series? Look very similar to 763m but not orbit grey, they look more silver.

I know everyone is looking at the 8 series, and the GC concept, but that Alpina B5 Bi-Turbo Touring is some sweet looking forbidden fruit.

The fronts are 255/35/ZR 21. As for the rears, I dont have a clear pic of the rear tyre other than the below but looking at it, it looks like 275/30/ZR 21??

Festival of Speed is still on the bucketlist to visit as a Petrolhead...
...nice pictures of displayed BMW's at the Goodwood event.

Blue and white do look good. As is the Sunset Orange colour I saw today at DTM races at Zandvoort:
