Although we have already seen a completely uncovered production 6-series coupe, these spy photos confirm that the upcoming production 2012 6-series coupe will feature a glass panoramic roof! A beautiful glass panoramic roof has been featured on the 6-series concept car, but these photos confirm that the glass greenhouse will indeed make it to production. The production glass top, however, appears to only extend back until the B-pillar and does not encompass the entire roof as seen on the concept coupe.
Having been inside the concept coupe, we can say that the glass roof provides for not only a beautiful look, but also a more spacious feeling inside the coupe, which reduces any claustrophobic feeling - particularly for rear seat passengers. We have posted some photos of … CONTINUED
If you’re a fan of the new 6-series convertible, this 25+ min. of stock video footage should be a treat. The video features the 650i convertible on location in beautiful Cape Town, South Africa. The clip features driving scenes, exterior design, engine, and interior design segments.
Insideline comes in with their favorable first drive review of the 2012 650i convertible, which they felt had explosive straight-line acceleration with a surprising amount of feedback and an inherent balance which makes it feel alive and responsive to every movement of the wheel. The 650i’s agility was also very impressive. Read the rest of this positive review inside.

WHAT CAR? Magazine has gotten some alone time with a stunning new 640i SE Cabriolet and brought along some readers to get their opinions on the new vehicle and at the same time offer some stunning visual shots of the car in HD video. Worth the watch!
Yesterday, BMW kicked off the international press event for the new 6-Series Cabrio (F12) in South Africa. These press days aren’t meant to introduce any new facts and figures (we’ve already extensively covered the car in all its gory detail here), but rather gives members of the press some hands on time with the car in order to go back home and write their first drive reviews. BMW did however release a set of new pictures that we thought should be shared.
Ive attached a gallery below (which you can download high resolution wallpaper quality images from as well), the most interesting of these cars to me is the dark blue 650i that is sitting outdoors next to the E63 6-Series. This car actually has a custom … CONTINUED
Here it is, the 6-Series coupe completly uncovered. I know I know, we’ve just posted pictures of a lightly camouflaged Alpine White coupe only an hour ago, but this literally just came across my desk. It has no camo on it whatsoever so it was worth sharing IMO.
This particular 6-Series seems to wear Space Gray paint and is probably a 640i, given the rounded exhaust tips and smallish wheels (not clear if those will be the stock wheels or if we are looking at winter wheels).
The 640i will utilize the all new N55 TwinScroll turbocharged 6 cylinder engine producing 320HP and 450Nm of torque. The 650i will sit alongside the 640i and will house the same 4.4L twin turbo V8 as in the 550i and … CONTINUED
It seems like its all 6, all the time, recently doesn’t in? Its true, we’ve been showing alot of 6-Series pictures recently, but thats because BMW has been kind enough to parade around its new big coupe in a few different colors and trims. To recap, the coupe was recently spotted in Vermillion Red and Deep Sea Blue.
Now what we have before us is the new Coupe in Alpine White, with standard body trim, ie. no M-Sport. This appears to be the top of the class 650i, given away by its dual square exhausts out the rear and large 19 or 20″ alloy wheels, which are unbelievable. The beautifully proportioned car is everything you would expect it to be on the heels of the officially released … CONTINUED
