2012 BMW 6-Series Convertible Photo Shoot from South Africa

|

If by any chance you still haven't seen the new 6-Series Convertible in the flesh and are not satisfied by the first batch of 133 photos released by the Bavarian automaker last November, BMW has just published an enormous gallery of its soft top cabriolet, photographed in South Africa. The Germans also added a few shots of a 6-Series Individual, which is a special program that provides customers additional bespoke options to reflect their individuality.

As a reminder, there are two engines available for the new 6 Series Convertible at launch. The 640i gets a 3.0-liter turbocharged straight-six with 320-horses and 450Nm / 332 lb-ft of peak torque, good enough to propel the four-seater model from standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.7 seconds.

The 650i boasts a 4.4-liter turbo V8 producing 407HP and 600Nm / 443 lb-ft, and completes the standard sprint in 5.0 seconds. Both models have an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

In the USA, BMW will offer the 650i Convertible from this Spring with a starting price of $91,375 (including destination and handling fees).

Mixed reactions in the comments, but until I see one live I'm keeping with "good looking" and "a lot better when compared to the old one".

Beautiful cars should photograph well - the whole "let me wait to see it in person" should NOT be the case. Surely you get a different perspective when viewing vehicles in person that may help change your mind - like when I first viewed the Porsche Panamera in person - its not a beautiful car but its different in a way that makes it distinctive - thus I liked it. With that said, the new BMW 6 does not photograph well and its not distinctive compared to its competition like the CL for example (coupe). In terms of this convertible, I'd rather spend a bit more for classier lines.

Lovely from the rear, I happen to have followed one close up yesterday to see what it was. 4 or 5 of the same color (champagne) 650i convertibles drove by in Noordhoek on way to Chapmans Peak.No so "old man" and quirky as the previous generation, the rump is beautiful, it looks more compact and sporty than before. That one 3/4 side pic shows a bit of bathtub profile, a pity. ..not quite in the aesthetics league of a Maser Gran Cabrio now izzit!But hey the Panemera has only ONE good angle: Front, square on, the rest reminds me of VW Variant vomit.
