Testing season is fully underway in Germany and the upcoming F12 BMW 6-series is fully involved. Here we see the upcoming 6-series still wearing heavy camoflage over the entire front and rear ends, which will be the most drasticly changed parts of the car when compared to the current example. This is a car that as some may remember has been said to be the "Best-looking BMW in years" by BMWUSA officials.
A folding hardtop seems to be a sure bet at this point, especially considering the E93 has been wearing one for years now. This car wears a faux canvas top as part of its general camoflage, but make no mistake, there is a hardtop under that … CONTINUED
Here’s a rendering by Gerald Alvarez of the F12 6-series coupe rear view, based on a recent set of 6-series photos we posted. The render is of course gorgeous, so do you think it’s accurate? Share inside.
We bring you the worlds first video of the F12 6-series coupe in live action. Seeing the test mule in a natural environment among other cars puts into focus the sleekness and well-proportioned design of the F12 so far.
This 6-series coupe test mule was spotted again recently in Munich. The very first 6-series coupe test mule was spotted and photographed just this past week. This test mule still wears heavy camouflage panels and paint, but its overall proportions and shape can still be appreciated. The new 6-series coupe is due to launch in 2011.
Resident photoshopper Gerald Alvarez has now put his imagination and photoshop skills to work on the next 6-series convertible (F13), based on our recent spy photos of the F12 6-series coupe and F13 6-series convertible.
We bring you the first ever sighting of the next generation 6-series coupe (F12)! Until now, only the 6-series convertible prototype has been spotted. This 6-series coupe prototype clearly differs from the convertible in the larger rear window, different side windows, and different B-pillars.
This is the story of a dream come true. Mark Carson wanted a BMW M6 with Hawaiian Koawood in the interior. Together with BMW Individual he created his own, very special, BMW M6. These completely custom Individual cars are done for customers only once or twice a year.
After a two decade hiatus, Alpina returned to motorsports last year with the Alpina B6 GT. Here are some behind the scenes look at the Alpina B6 GT during its first racing season. Based on BMWs 6-Series coupe, the B6 weighs under 3,000 pounds and gets a supercharged 4.4-liter V8 that gives more than 520 horsepower and 535 pound-feet of torque.
Although non-German speaking folks may not be able to understand the conversation, sometimes race cars like the B6 GT are best observed by simply watching and listening to the action.
Backed by a six-speed X-Trac sequential gearbox, the car is reportedly capable of hitting 62 miles-per-hour in 3.9 seconds en route to a top whack of at least 177 … CONTINUED
We bring you the most revealing photos yet of the next generation 6-series convertible (F13). Compared to the previous sightings, the car seen here reveals more details. For the first time we are seeing the front kidney grill outlines and outlines of the headlights and tail lights.
The F13 6-series will be a folding hardtop convertible (the cloth covering the hardtop is a decoy) and is expected to debut late this year for a possible premiere at the Geneva Autoshow in March 2011.
