Cool 2012 6-series Coupe (F12) Hits The Ring

We bring you the first sighting of the next generation 6-series coupe (F12) testing on the Nurburgring. The last coupe sightings were back in April and only F13 convertibles have been spotted since. This comes as no surprise as the coupe is scheduled for production a few months after the start of convertible production.

Judging by the exhaust and premium sport wheels, this appears to be a 650i coupe.

Here is the BMW announced production schedule for the F12 / F13 6-series coupe and convertible.

MY 2012:

March 2011 - 650cv
July 2011 - 650cp
September 2011 - 640cp/cv
September 2011 - 650xi cp/cv

It just seems like such a large two-door compared to the previous. But you know it's gonna be a screamer

Wheels are very AMGish looking (C63, E63, etc). Can't go wrong with 5 spoke designs in 18"+

ya know, these dimensions are kind of reminiscent of the 8-series. low sharp front end, long stretched rear glass, short trunk ... does anyone else see that? i loved that car so maybe its just my head wishing they would bring it back ha

The front overhang is huge - quite unlike other BMWs.

It needs them. IMO the side mirrors on my M6 are too small. It's a big car and good visibility for lane changes helps.

The 6 is targeted to take on a pretty broad set of cars. It's most direct competitor is probably the Benz SL class, but it also indirectly competes against the CL class. I'm sure BMW would also like the 6 to be perceived is a low cost alternative to the Bentley Continental GT, too. The 6 has always been in kind of an oddball position. In terms of performance, the M6 is a competitor against the SL63, CL63, Maser GT, Bentley GT Speed, Ferrari 612, and Aston DB9. But it costs so much less than those cars it doesn't carry the same status. So it ends up being matched against the 911, which is a much sportier car.

BMW needs to either really step up the luxury aspects of the 6 by going to a high end interior (and a higher price tag) or make it sporty enough to hang with the 911. Right now it's neither.
