Surprisingly, despite the slew of M6 spy photos we've brought you since the first sightings last year, not a single prototype has been in a color other than black. But, that's no longer the case as this space gray F12 M6 convertible was just spied on the streets of Munich.

The camouflage level remains the same as recent M6 convertible mules, with the front and rear fascia still mostly masked, but, as we've discussed previously -- the details on the rear bumper can be made out through the tape, and appears to follow the current M trademark design, which is similar to the rear bumper on the 1M and X3 M Sport. It is still not known if the centerpiece would be black as on the 1M or painted as on the M5.

Power will come via the S63Tu Twin Turbo 4.4L V8 that powers that F10 M5 which is good for 560HP and 501ft-lb of torque. Expect to see the car revealed in full sometime in calendar year 2012.

Be sure to follow all information on the BMW F12 M6 convertible @
