The upcoming BMW 6-Series Coupe will come in a 640i flavor, featuring the turbocharged inline-6 series dubbed the N55. This configuration has so far not made it to the US on the Cabrio version, but Autoblog.com has confirmed that the 640i will make it here in both Coupe and Cabrio versions when the coupe arrives this fall.
The N55 is a TwinPower turbo 3.0L inline-6 pumping out 316HP and 332ft-lb of torque in European spec.
In addition to the N55, Autoblog has also learnt that the AWD xDrive system will also become a new option, but only on the V8 650i.
Hartge has begun its tuning program for the new 6-series. Thus far, the Hartge 6-series is equipped with a stainless steel sport exhaust system, 19″ or 20″ Hartge wheels, and lower springs which lower the car by 30mm front and 25mm rear.
No info on yet what cosmetic aero parts will be forthcoming.
The interiors of Hartge car can be equipped with Hartge mats, steering wheel, and aluminum pedal set.
6POST members have begun taking deliveries of their 2012 6-series Convertibles (F12)! Congrats to xraymd on the delivery of his space gray 2012 650i cabrio. See photos of his gorgeous 6-series 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

These are the best spy photos yet of the upcoming 6-series convertible! Save for a few pieces of not very disguising tape, the production 6-series cabrio comes into view. The cloth hardtop remains on this 650i convertible (but we’ve been told that a hardtop option will be available).
Autocar shares even more photos of the F13 6-series Coupe Concept, including additional angles, lighting details, and interior pics. The additional views reveal even more beautiful lines and design elements of BMW’s newest concept.
We present to you the world premiere of the F13 BMW Concept 6 Series Coupe! This stunning concept will debut publicly at the 2010 Paris Motoro Show in a little under two weeks. The F13 6-series coupe is scheduled for production beginning July 2011. European sales begin after in April 2011 and North American sales commence July 2011.
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.
