Cool Next gen 2011 6-series hardtop convertible (F13) spy video

The next generation 6-series convertible (F13) continues testing throughout Munich. The folding top is expected to be a hardtop. She's sounding good!

I'm hoping there's a little more fat suit left to cover some body lines, or the lack of them for that matter.

Maybe performance-oriented? Lighter materials. Unsure, though. You'd think they'd be doing hard-top convertibles now since they look cooler and are quieter.

O no, I understand that part. The title says it's a hard top, but in the video its a rag top.

It's a hardtop. The rag is just there for camo purposes. if you look at the rear windows, you can see that it is a hardtop and the rag actually does not connect to the back.

I don't think you will see a return to the metal roof for future convertibles, the weight is too great, plus it's effect on handling is something that even BMW can't fully overcome.

It looks a lot bigger than the current one... right? Very flat through the turn at the end.

You can tell is a fake rag-top.
It's actually a hard top underneath.

I would suspect that its actually a hard top, but for now they are just conceling it with a cover not to give it away too soon.

I would've thought it's a hardtop since he just came out of the car wash. I recall that rag-top cars are not recommended in car washes, since high pressure water can (sometimes) leak in. On the other hand, they could be testing the quality of the fit and finish...

... but I vote hard-top. The Z got it, the owners of the 6-series would want one too.

The overall lines make me think of an Aston Martin DB9. Which isn't bad.
