BMW chose the 6 series to showcase what owners can achieve via the BMW Individual customization program. On display were two stunning 6-series - a white coupe and a black convertible.
The 6 series coupe was painted in Brilliant White Metallic with a mouth dropping Amaro Brown | Black leather interior. The other Individual options spec’d on this car were:
BMW Individual fine wood trim - Sycamore, red brown, dark
BMW Individual headliner - Alcantara Platin
BMW Individual wooden intarsia for leather steering wheel
BMW Individual door sills
The BMW Individual 6 series convertible was painted in Citrin Black paired with an interior consisting of piano black trim with full fine-grain leather merino leather seats, center console, door trim, and instrument paneling, in opal white color.
The 2012 BMW 6 series M Sport package has debuted at the Frankfurt IAA. The M Sport package adds some aggressiveness to the normally (perhaps overly, in our opinion) svelte 6 series with a much beefier front bumper with large air inlets and integrated splitters. The profile of the 6 series gets M sport sideskirts, which resemble the M3 sideskirts and gloss black trim. And the rear receives some aggressive treatment as well with the M sport bumper with contrasting colored diffuser.
To us, the centerpieces of the M sport equipped interior are the beautiful alcantara/leather sports seats - alcantara back and seat and leather headrest and side and leg bolsters, finished off with blue contrast stitching and a small M colored piping. Par for the course, … CONTINUED
Hamann will be debuting its newest builds at the Frankfurt IAA beginning tomorrow, but here’s a first look at the Hamann 650i.
Front and center in the Hamann 650i tuning package is the complete replacement bumper with LED daytime running lights and complete rear bumper replacement. It also gets aggressive sideskirts and rear trunk spoiler.
As for performance, the power is pushed to 510hp with a ECU tune and stainless exhaust system.
The 650i is lowered by 30mm on Hamann springs.
AC Schnitzer will be debuting their latest models at next week’s Frankfurt IAA, and one of them will be their 6 series convertible.
It’s based on the 650i, but the power has been tuned up significantly to 540hp (from standard 407hp). These gains come from an ECU tune and a new exhaust system.
Cosmetic enhancements include a new front spoiler lip, radiator grille, and rear apron.
Brakes have been upgraded with new 8 piston calipers in front. The car has been lowered with Schnitzer springs and sit on 21″ Schnitzer wheels.
We will bring you more info and coverage next week from the Frankfurt IAA.
The once-every-two-year Frankfurt IAA auto show is nearly upon us. Press coverage will begin Tuesday, September 13. Here is a preview of the headline BMW debuts headed for Frankfurt.
We have just spied a 2012 M6 coupe bearing its and rear end designs clearly on the streets of Munich for the first time. We recently had a brief look at the M6’s bumper styling when it first appeared uncovered while testing (and crashing unfortunately) on the Nurburgring.
We can now tell clearly that the M6 coupe does not simply adopt the F10 M5’s front lower bumper design whole cloth, but has its own sleek take on it. The biggest difference are the side air ducts, which angle up sharply on the M6. The fins/splitters which sit underneath the side air ducts are also longer on the M6 compared to the M5. Overall it blends the F10 M5’s and E85 Z4 M Roadster/Coupe’s bumper styling, with a … CONTINUED
This is just a short clip of the new 6er Coupe driving down some picturesque background wearing the full M-Sport kit.
The upcoming 6-series Gran Coupe has now been spotted out in M-sport form. The elegant four-door coupe will share the same M-sport kit as the 6-series coupe (recently spotted) and the convertible - with more aggressive front bumper, sideskirts, and rear bumper/diffuser.
Current expectation is for the Gran Coupe to hit showrooms in 2012 as a 2013 Model Year vehicle. Engine range is expected to be identical to the 6-Series Coupe.
Palbay does it again and catches the first good real life photos of the new M Sport 650i Coupe. The car looks unreal in these photos and palbay was good enough to get the car at all angles
