Later this fall, BMW will also introduce an xDrive model in the 6 Series family, but pricing or other details have not been announced at the moment

Exclusively available for the the 650i Individual Convertible, the Tansanite Blue metallic is offered for the first time by BMW. All the paint available in the Individual programs is applied in up to seven layers offering fascinating iridescent effects, extraordinary brilliance and exceptional depth.

As announced today, for the moment, BMW has no plans to introduce a 6 Series diesel in the United States. Even though not confirmed, we expect other engine offerings to make their way across the ocean, starting with the 640i models.

    Got to sit in one over the weekend at the Xdrive event in Vancouver. My wife liked it, too, but she was quick to point out that it would break the bank :( The plastic of the glove box felt rather cheap, much like everything inside the 1M, which was also on display (wow, it looks spectacular). The X1 with 4cyl was great to drive in the handling course, but obviously it didn’t feel as sporty as a 328xi, which they had there as well.

    How lucky you are: $ 83,000 for you, for me, costs € 83,000 (123,500 dollars)! Why BMW reward only the U.S. with design, driving style and price? ;(

      How lucky for you!
      The new 6 cabrio has a list price of AUD $240,000 here in Australia which converted to US dollars today is about US$260,000!
      How insane is that?!
