BMW to Launch New 2012 6-Series Convertible on 26 March, 2011

While snooping around on BMW’s UK website we discovered that one of the cars featured in the ‘Quick model selector’ was the new 6-Series Convertible. While there are no photos of the drop-top model, BMW offers select clients the opportunity to sign up for an exclusive BMW Dealer pre-launch preview event.

Here’s what the invitation says:

“The new BMW 6 Series Convertible will be launched on 26 March 2011. So to make sure we keep you up to date with the latest news and send you an invitation to an exclusive BMW Dealer pre-launch preview, just register below.”

The new 2012 6-Series Convertible will be based on the 6-Series Coupe Concept shown in Paris last month. As you can see in our spy shots, BMW’s flagship convertible series will retain the outgoing model’s soft-top roof arrangement. Under the skin, the new “6” will get rear-wheel drive, an eight-speed automatic gearbox, and the option of six-cylinder petrol or diesel engines, and turbocharged V8 petrols topping out with the M6’s twin-turbo V8 with close to 600 ponies.
