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

This 6-series convertible image has been posted without much fanfare on Autobild.de. Could it possibly be a leak of the upcoming 2012 6-series convertible? Possible as we don’t recall seeing a similar image upon which the render could be based. If this is indeed the 6-series convertible, it looks to be the 650i cabrio (with style 356 wheels), which will begin production in March 2011. The F13 6-series will come with a traditional cloth roof.

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
September 2011 – 650xi cp/cv

Here are our latest spy photos of the 2012 M6 Coupe (F12) and Convertible (F13). The coupe is showing a camouflaged front bumper but the production wheel design, and the convertible is not yet testing with its production bumper. The coupe will look essentially like the 6-series coupe concept debuted at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, albeit with M body styling and other bits.

The new M6 Coupe will debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2012. The M6 Cabrio will follow later in 2012. An M6 Gran Coupe (4 door) will arrive in late 2013. A Possible M6 Shooting brake is under consideration.

We bring you the first significant 2012 M6 video from on and around the Nurburgring. Although its still heavily camouflaged, much of its looks have already been revealed with 6-series Concept Coupe from the Paris Motor Show. The new M6 Coupe will debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2012. The M6 Cabrio will follow later in 2012. An M6 Gran Coupe (4 door) will arrive in late 2013. A Possible M6 Shooting brake is under consideration.

We bring you the first look at the 2012 M6 cabrio (F13) in testing. Previous M6 sightings have all been of the M6 coupe. This M6 test mule features a cloth top and still wears the bumper from the regular 6-series, but features the signature M quad exhausts, large wheels, and huge brakes. Although we have gotten a glimpse at the production bumper previously here: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=420642

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 twin turbo, twin scroll, direct injection), expected to come in at the 585-600hp mark.

The 2012 M6 (F12) has now been spotted with its production bumper for the first time. Spotted at the Nurburgring, this M6 prototype wears its M bumper, as well as showing its LED lights in action. We believe that the shape of the bumper camouflage may be intentionally deceiving and that the bumper fins will slant outwards just as seen on the M5 prototype.

We bring you the first ever video of the upcoming BMW M6, captured near the Nurburgring. Though the video is short, it nevertheless provides a dynamic look at the M6, not to mention a listen at the ~600hp V8 twin turbo motor. We hope these wheels are the eventual production wheels as they look terrific in motion!
