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.

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 … 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 … CONTINUED
The 6-series testing appears to be on a roll lately. Only yesterday we brought you the latest set of spyshots showing the F13 6-series Coupe almost fully unmasked. Following here is what appears to be the first look at the 6-series coupe with M-Sport package, courtesy of spyshots.nl. BMW did a pretty good job at masking the M-Sport front and rear bumpers. A closer look however reveals the more protruding/curved front bumper, bespoke M-Sport side skirts, and a different rear bumper. Don’t be upset about the … CONTINUED
Just as BMW officially premieres the all new 6-series cabrio at the 2011 NAIAS this week, we are given the best look yet at the production intent 6-series coupe, which up until now has been clad in heavy camouflage. This vermillion red test car shows off styling that resembles the 6-series convertible, yet draws on styling cues from the stunning Concept Gran Coupe.
The model spied here appears to be a 640i coupe, which should be powered by BMW’s inline 6-cylinder turbo N55 motor. The 6-series coupe … CONTINUED

This is it! The official World Premiere of the BMW 6 Series Convertible. This car is the real deal production car. What was shown previously was the 6-Series Concept car. While the look of the car is basicly identical to the “concept” car, this is now an official production vehicle. In many instances, BMW likes to show off a “concept” version of a car first in order to acclimate the public to the new offering before making it official, so thats the major distinction between the … CONTINUED
