Just two weeks ago, the cat was out of the bag: a leaked photo of the new BMW 6 Series Convertible made its way onto the interwebs. Before its official unveiling in December, spy photographers continue to spot the car in various locations around Munich.
Latest spy shots give us a closer look at the high-end Cabriolet. Similar to the BMW 6 Series Coupe Concept unveiled at Paris Motor Show, the new 6er Convertible features the shorter overhangs and wider fender flares and it is wider than the current generation, with dimensions between the new 5 Series and the 7 Series.
The corona ring headlights, a BMW trademark, made their way into the new 6 Series as well. The taillights continue to sport an L-shape and LEDs.
Engine wise, the new 6 Series will feature a combination of diesel and petrol offerings. The high-end diesel model will be the 640d, powered by the N57 turbocharged straight-6 common rail diesel engine outputting 306 horsepower. The 650i will be the highest offering powered by the 4.4 liter V8 Twin-turbo engine found in the other 50i models.
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.
