The next generation 2011 BMW 6 Series is less than a year away from the official unveiling. The second generation 6 Series is among BMW’s “special” cars, by having its own niche and clientele. While it has never been a huge seller as the 3 or 7 Series, the 6er holds a special place in BMW’s luxurious line-up.
2011 BMW 6 Series, codename F13 will not suffer any drastic changes, the current design has proven to be very successful and BMW has no intention to become “adventurous” with the new design. What we briefly learned was that the headlights will be similar to the ones on the CS Concept, but will not have the circular cut out, just a straight across slit.
The wheelbase of the new BMW 6 Series is slightly longer than today’s model, therefore, it will offer more legroom for rear passengers. The driver oriented cockpit is making a comeback and the console layout will be al about the driver and the connection with his/her car.
The folding hardtop will make its way into the new 6er, using the same technology as the one in the 3 Series Convertible.
BMW plans to offer three models, the entry-level 630, followed by the high-end 650 and a diesel variant, most likely the 635d. Of course, the flagship M6 model will become available a year after the 6 Series launch.
Now, let’s see some photos and a rendering done by the fellows at CarAdvice
