BMW may seem to be a little late to the party with their four-door coupe dubbed the Gran Coupe, but it may just be coming in at the right time to battle it out with Mercedes-Benz‘s updated CLS-Class and Audi‘s A7. While we’ve seen the Gran Coupe concept several times now, these renderings indicate the car’s production is underway.

The style of the Gran Coupe is clear: BMW will draw its inspiration from the current 5-Series body while giving it the sporty-style from a 6-Series front end. The body itself is streamlined and elongated to fit the four-door coupe design we have seen with the popular CLS-Class and Audi’s A7.

More interesting is whether or not BMW will compete in the performance department against Mercedes’ highly touted CLS63 and Audi’s upcoming S7. Perhaps BMW will make an M-variant to their Gran Coupe in due time?
