The CLK has been one of Mercedes most successful models as of late, but it never had any really strong competition in the midsize luxury coupe segment. Will the release of the all-new 6 Series suddenly make the CLK seem bland?

I can't find out much info on this future car. How big is it? Does the "6" designation mean that it is sized between the five and seven series, or is it something else entirelly. Inquiring minds need to know!
The 6 series will be a sports coupe/convertable built on the new 5 platform. BMW is adopting a new scheme for numbering the cars. All even #s will be sports coupes and odd #s will be sedan. I am hoping to buy one when my lease runs out in 2005, provided the styling is good, otherwise it may be CLK 500. Performance wise I am sure it will blow the MBs away.
I previously owned the 630 BMW. It was the best car I have ever owned. When the 840/850 came out it was too expensive and really did not seat four people comfortably like the 6 did. I hope if it is on a 5 frame that the back seats become reasonable for those times when you must carry 4 adult persons. I would hope the new 6 series is not in the either of the 840/850 price but somewhere perhaps in the 7 series price range.
