Vermillion Red F13 6-series Coupe Spotted

The F13 6-series coupe will be unveiled within weeks, but test mules continue to be spotted. Courtesy of Autogespot, this vermillion red F13 6-series was spotted at a European ski resort. And although there is actually more camouflage on this prototype than even earlier spottings, it nevertheless gives us additional looks of the F13 from different angles and perspectives.

Based on the exhaust tip design and placement, this particular model appears to be a 650i. It is powered by the same 402hp twin-turbo V8 motor (N63) found in the already released 650i convertible and F10 550i.

The 650i coupe is scheduled to begin production in July of this year. Here is the BMW announced production schedule for the F12 / F13 6-series coupe and convertible lineup:

MY 2012:

March 2011 - 650cv (cabrio)
July 2011 - 650cp (coupe)
September 2011 - 640cp/cv
September 2011 - 650xi cp/cv

This one sort of just blends in doesn't it? Nothing polarizing about it.

Looks like a Mustang. And that's not a good thing.

This is how the 6 series should have been from the start. Not that sloped nose slack jawed car with a rear end designed by an artist reject from Hyundai. Long live the 6!

Is it me or does something just seem off? Maybe removing that front license plate will help things. True it's not polarizing, but tbh the front isn't as nice/aggressive as it should be.

They reserve the "aggressive" part for the M6 as it always should. I think it's perfect.

Exactly what I was thinking too. Looks a lot like a Mustang from the rear three quarters.

The rear looks similar to the outgoing 6 series. Maybe a bit too similar.
Not feeling the front grill shape though

Can't wait to see this, out there, but the one I'm really keen to see is the Gran Coupe..

SCOTT, you out there? when are we likely to see the GC testing, please?

This is VERY ugly. BMW is going nowhere fast with the 6-Series. Someone needs to lose their job over this one!

i dont think this will look as good as the previous model , BMW needs to come up with some better looking front bumpers .

Ugly is right. What were they thinking?

This car is now one of most over-priced cars on the market. A loaded 6-series vert is over $110,000. Sad!
