We bring you the first photos of 6-series convertible test cars in different colors and configurations. Previously, only a milano beige F13 6-series has been spotted, but we now see the stunning convertible in both silver (650i) and red color (640i). The silver 650i wears some beautiful wheels weve not yet seen, which transforms the whole look of the car (for the better), in our opinion.

Here is the BMW announced production schedule for the F12 / F13 6-series coupe and convertible.

MY 2012:

March 2011 – 650cv

July 2011 – 650cp

September 2011 – 640cp/cv

The lucky guys at Car and Driver recently had a chance to do something that we can only do in our dreams — test drive the ALMS M3 GT race car. What they share with us is some great insight from a non-professional driver as well as some stunning photography of the ALMS M3.

The Alpina B5 has always been a sort of special car, elegant, fast and distinctive all at the same time. Its no wonder that the upcoming Alpina B5 has had a pre-release following similar to a series BMW. The car has been tracked through development spyshot after spyshot, artists even attempted to render the car to guess at what it would look like. Thankfully, it seems the car is now set for its release and showing to the world at the Goodwood Festival of Speed (July 1 – 4, 2010).
