BMW 6-Series

These are shots of the forthcoming BMW 6-Series track testing at the Ring

The first surprise was we snapped the convertible before we got to see the coupé. And the second surprise is that the new 6-Series cabrio will come with a traditional canvas top rather than one of those retractable hard-tops that are so popular nowadays. This might have technical as well as design reasons: yet today it’s difficult to find a solution for the stowage of a long roof without cutting too much off the luggage space.

We assume the fake rear window is to hide the fins of the canvas-top first seen on the current model and apparently given to the new model again. Besides these fins, we can reveal the overall shape of the new 6-Series won’t differ much from the outgoing model, though refinement will be done to every panel. The new coupé and cabrio will be available again as 630, 650 and 635d models with outputs of 272, 367 and 286 hp.
