We bring you the first sighting of the next generation 6-series coupe (F12) testing on the Nurburgring. The last coupe sightings were back in April and only F13 convertibles have been spotted since. This comes as no surprise as the coupe is scheduled for production a few months after the start of convertible production.
Judging by the exhaust and premium sport wheels, this appears to be a 650i coupe.
Here is the BMW announced production schedule for the F12 / F13 6-series coupe and convertible.
March 2011 – 650cv
July 2011 – 650cp
September 2011 – 640cp/cv
September 2011 – 650xi cp/cv

The upcoming 6-series has been one of the most frequently spied future BMWs as it’s one of the BMW models that will be revealed in the next few months (Winter of 2010/2011). This is the first time a blue convertible has been spotted and also some of the best photos yet of the grill/duct work of the front bumper. The profile shot shows off the incredibly sleek silhouette that the F13 6-series convertible will have.

We recently brought you photos of the F13 2012 6-series convertible undergoing testing on the ring. Various F13′s have also been spotted on and around the Nurburgring in various models and trims, including what looks to be 650i and 640i convertibles.
We bring you photos of the F13 6-series convertible sporting a tan color soft top for the first time. We have not yet seen confirmation of the soft top colors to be available on the upcoming F13. If this tan top is one of those colors, it certainly matches Milano Beige (as pictured), but were not sure it will work well with other exterior colors.
The soon to be outgoing 2010 6-series convertible is currently available in a black or gray soft stop.
