BMW debuted their new Concept CS at the Shanghai Auto Show. It is a four-door coupe and a likely competitor to the Mercedes-Benz CSL and Porsche Panamera.

The new Concept CS, taking it name from the highly styled BMWs of the '60s is even larger than the current flagship - the 7-series. It is lower, wider and longer. And I wonder - faster? It brings a new style to the BMW family with it's shark like "nose" and the grill being a reminder of the '60s grills from BMW. It does have a resemblance to the Z-8 though, seen from the front.

The biggest surprise is probably the fact that the car was debuted at the Shanghai Auto Show, instead of the auto shows in Europe or the US.
