Andy Valencia of GermanCarForum puts his creativity to use and renders the next generation 2012 BMW 6 Series Convertible. Due to be unveiled by the end of this year with a 2011 March debut at Geneva Motor Show, the new 6er Convertible joins the recently unveiled Coupe Concept.

Designed by the same team, the new 6er Convertible follows a similar design language that will be seen across the 6 Series family. Similar to the Coupe, the new 6er Convertible features shorter overhangs and wider fender flares, and has a wider track than the current generation. Overall dimensions are said to be between the new 5 Series and 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. The high-end convertible continues to make use of a soft top, despite initial rumors that a hardtop will be offered for the first time.

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.
