Arrow More 2012 6-series Convertible Spotted

Reported on BIMMERPOST HOMEPAGE.


The upcoming 6-series has been one of the most frequently spied future BMWs as it's one of the BMW models that will be revealed in the next few months (Winter of 2010/2011). This is the first time a blue convertible has been spotted and also some of the best photos yet of the grill/duct work of the front bumper. The profile shot shows off the incredibly sleek silhouette that the F13 6-series convertible will have.

The car looks really long...wonder how much the wheelbase went up? Don't know..might be too big for the traditional 6 series buyer

assumably the 650 with its 407HP lots of torque and 8 gears will not be much slower than the actual M6, i am still woundering which one it should be in the end...

(lower holding-cost against lower buying price)

I don't think the wheelbase has increased expontentially...I think it's the proportions; the roofline looks squatter and the front overhang is humongous now.

I think you are right, the roof looks to have been lowered. The car has always been quite large, no need to stretch the wheelbase.

Looks like we may have ourselves a proper looking 6 series here.

Also glad to see a soft top.

All I know is that this thing will look beyond sick compared to its competition.

Hopefully they give extra attention on the look for the rear end/ bumper. Jeremy Clarkson said that the rear looked as if the designer suddenly died before he could complete the design.

Otherwise it's lookin good so far.

My main man in Germany said that there is still one more surprise about the new 6 series to come...

But damn, despite what some people say, this is a smooth looking ride.

i am guessing the surprise is that its going to be a hard top convertible, and all of these spy pics have really been fooling us.. i spoke to a dealer in the northeast and they are saying its a hard top convertible.. what do you guys think?

I cant wait to see this, along with the 1M, and the M5, and everything else getting ready to come out!

PS why is there no 6 series forum?

Judging by the Gran Coupe concept, I don't think we'll be disapointed.

We've posted F12 6-series coupe spy photos before, but it's been a while since the last sightings. See these threads:
