UK magazine WhatCar? reviews the new 2012 BMW 6 Series Convertible. In Europe, the new 6 Series Convertible will debut on March 26, 2011 with the 640i and 650i models. A few months later, the 640d will join the line-up, including the xDrive option.

Both the 640i and 650i will join the US line-up. The entry-level 6er Convertible is powered by the N55 TwinScroll turbocharged engine. The engine produces 320 horsepower at 5,800 rpm and 450Nm of torque between 1,300 and 4,500 rpm. The 640i Convertible weighs 1,840 kilograms, but still manages to run from 0 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds.

2012 6 Series Convertible has the alure of an athelete, combined with svetlness, classic looks and the 6 Series shark nose.

Video Review: 2012 BMW 6 Series Convertible

The car sports a sweeping hood surrounded by a muscular profile. Like the lines projecting outward from the nose of the car and continuing along its full length, the harmoniously curved surfaces of the body take their cue from the movement of waves sent out by a the bow of a motor boat piercing the water.

The new 6 Series receives the full LED treatment, as previewed on the 6 Series Coupe Concept.

Let’s have a look at the video review.

    Actually, this is the one picture of the 6 that the headlights look good in. There’s something about the optics of the lamp glass that’s not sufficiently delineating the shark-fin shape.
