BMW introduces Concept CS, pricey response to MB CLS

BMW Concept CS pushes beyond the M5

Dutch Mandel and Phil Floraday | AutoWeek / April 19, 2007 - 11:26 am
BMW will take wraps off the Concept CS -- a car that is a very thinly veiled representation of a model soon headed for production -- at the Shanghai auto show on Friday, April 20.

The CS is envisioned as a range-topping four-door with coupe styling, sharing underpinnings with the next-generation 7 series.

The exterior dimensions are impressive -- and large. The low-slung body stretches 200.8 inches long and a huge 78 inches wide, but is a scant 53.5 inches high. For comparison, the current 7 series is smaller than this beast: 198.4 inches long, 58.7 inches high and 74.9 inches wide.

Even with its increased length and width, the seating capacity in the CS -- and the production four-door coupe it will spawn -- drops to four.

I guess it's "stunning" if you like a Dodge Hemi...

Don't believe everything you think

Aside from everything else, the front end is hideous.

I like BMWs as much as I do Mercedes. But their new ones are getting fuglier by the minute.

I think the CS looks pretty darn mean, actually. All those unnecessary ridges and lines really make it distinct. The front and rear lights just scream "DIE MERCEDES!!!!"

I used to not like the current aggressive BMW and Cadillac body styles, but they grew on me. A 6 series or XLR always turns my head now. Benz new body styles are growing on me as well. The facelifted W211 E class is still a little..... off.

Exactly what I was thinking. Kinda reminds me of the Magic School Bus. It looks like the car is leaning over to the front. One of the ugliest cars I have EVER seen. This better be a joke or BMW better start firing people.
