It’s been a while since the upcoming F13/F12 M6 coupe and cabrio have been spotted, but we now bring you a set of photos for both.

One of the M6 prototypes has lost the camouflage on its rear lights, giving us an idea of just how aggressive it will look. Although much of the front fascia remains covered in camouflage tape, it will resemble the recently revealed 6-series Coupe (official info and photos), but with an M styled bumper of course. The front brakes feature huge calipers with cross drilled rotors front and rear. Traditional quad exhausts are seen at the rear, surrounded by a still-camouflaged rear bumper which will also sport M-styling.

The 2013 M6 will share the same motor and drivetrain as the upcoming M5 – … CONTINUED

The 2012 650i coupe pricing has just been announced by BMW – starting at $83,875. This is nearly $8,000 less than the 650i convertible’s starting price. More details inside.

We bring you the first clear look at the 2012 6-series M-sport kit on an F13 coupe. Although covered in camouflage tape, it’s easy to make out the shape and style of the various 6-series M sport parts – the front bumper, sideskirts, and rear bumper. In our opinion, the beefy new front bumper which adds to the 6-series’ thin and angular front fascia gives BMW’s top end coupe a much more aggressive character.

The front bumper draws some lines from the F10 5-series M-sport (notably the middle portions), but the bottom/side parts of the side air inlets appear to taper in rather than go straight down as in the F10′s. Also, the front splitter fins don’t appear to come to an angle as on the … CONTINUED

The Alpina B6 based on the all new 2012 F13 coupe is imagined in even more detail in this stunning rear-view render by philip.

Harold Wood is certainly getting better and better with his renders, this time he brings the magic of Alpina to the all new 6 Series. Not only is his render spot on, but I think the classic Alpina wheels, color and aerodynamics compliment the shape of the 6 series perfectly, and I predict such a car would be an instant classic. Make sure to check this render out!!

The all new 6-series coupe has just been unveiled and we think she’s a beauty. Looks are of course in the eyes of the beholder, but we also think she compares favorably against the predecessor E63 6-series coupe, inside and out. We’ve put together a photo comparison so you can make your own judgements.

Here’s how the new F13 6-series coupe compares with the outgoing model:

192.7 in. (4,894 mm) in length – 2.9 inch (74mm) increase over previous 6-series coupe
112.4 in. (2,855 mm) wheelbase – 2.95 inch (75mm) longer than previous 6-series coupe
74.6 in. (1,894 mm) width – 1.5 inch (39mm) wider over previous 6-series coupe
53.9 in. (1,369 … CONTINUED

It’s been nearly 4 months since the all new 2013 M6 convertible was spotted, but it’s appeared yet again, and in the most unlikely time and place possible – Northern Sweden in the dead of winter. Now that the 6-series convertible has been officially debuted, BMW has moved onto the development of the top of the line 6-series cabrio.

The M6 prototype now sports the production M6 bumper underneath heavy front camouflage. Other signature M features already seen are the quad exhausts and huge front brakes. The wheels seen here are winter wheels/tires for testing purposes only.

The F12/F13 M6 will share the same engine as the upcoming F10 M5 – the turbocharged 8 cylinder motor from the X5 and X6 M (the BMW S63 engine, a 4.4L … CONTINUED

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 wheels).

The 640i will utilize the all new N55 TwinScroll turbocharged 6 cylinder engine producing 320HP and 450Nm of torque. The 650i will sit alongside the 640i and will house the same 4.4L twin turbo V8 as in the 550i and … 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 650i, given away by its dual square exhausts out the rear and large 19 or 20″ alloy wheels, which are unbelievable. The beautifully proportioned car is everything you would expect it to be on the heels of the officially released … CONTINUED
