The fellows over at M5board played spy photographers today and managed to snap some new shots of the new 2012 BMW 6 Series Convertible. Along with the close-up photos, the 6 Series Convertible was spied running at 160 mph.
To keep up with the 650i and its 407 horsepower, the occassional spy photographer was driving a G-Power M3 SK II, a car that outputs ,thanks to Club Sport Compressor, an incredible 600 hp and has a maximum torque of 570 Nm.
Later, two other 6 Series prototypes joined, and judging by the photos, one was the 635i powered by a 3.0 liter twin-scroll turbocharged engine.
With less than two months before its official unveiling at the Paris Motor Show, the cars are undergoing final testing procedures. The test mules continue to feature the psychedelic camouflage, covering the last and final details of this new BMW.
As illustrated in these spy photos, the new 6 Series platform is slightly longer and wider than the current model, with dimensions between the new 5 Series and the 7 Series. The 2012 6 Series features shorter overhangs and wider fender flares, corona white LEDs and an aggressive front-fascia.
The first U.S. 2011 6 Series model will debut in March of next year in the form of BMW 650i Convertible. In July 2011, the 650 Coupe will follow. Later in September of 2011, the BMW 640 Coupe and Convertible will launch, along with the xDrive variant of the 650.
