2012 Bmw 650i Convertible: official details, photos and specs

Although the Concept 6 Series Coupe was revealed at the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show, the Bavarian manufacturer decided to unveil the production-ready 2012 Bmw 650i Convertible and announced that the new car will go on sale in Spring of 2011. As you can see from the photos, the new car is clearly inspired by the Concept 6 Series Coupe, offering the new design philosophy for the Bavarian carmaker. As expected, the car is powered by a 4.4-liter V8 engine delivering 400 hp between 5,500 and 6,400 rpm and peak torque of 450 lb-ft between 1,750 and 4,500 rpm. The engine can be mated to the company’s new 8-speed Sport Automatic gearbox or BMW’s traditional 6-speed manual transmission. With the manual transmission installed, the new car can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds, while the 8-speed automatic transmission delivers the same time. Top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph. The new 6-Series also comes with new systems in order to reduce fuel consumption, such as Brake Energy Regeneration, intelligent lightweight construction and extensive aerodynamic refinement.

As an option, Bmw offers the Active Roll Stabilization which combines the standard Dynamic Damper Control to offer the driver even more precise responses and perfectly flat cornering ability. Furthermore, the car can be equipped with Integral Active Steering, a system which combines the Active Steering system for the front axle with a new, steerable rear axle. The brakes effectiveness is reinforced by Dynamic Stability Control (DSC). DSC brings together technology such as the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), Cornering Brake Control (CBC), Dynamic Brake Control (DBC), the Start-off Assistant, the automatic Brake Drying function and Brake Fade Compensation.

In addition, the car offers new driving modes: COMFORT, NORMAL, SPORT and SPORT+. At 4,894 millimeters (192.6 in.) in length, the new BMW 650i Convertible is 74 millimeters (2.9 in.) longer than its predecessor. Like its predecessor, the new BMW 650iConvertible is the only vehicle in its class with an optional Head-Up Display system. The new car also brings a new-generation Head-Up Display, which offers new improvements: symbols are projected as three-dimensional graphics and in ultra-clear resolution onto the windshield. Also, the 2012 Bmw 6-Series offers Rear-View, Top View, and Side View Cameras, in order to allow the driver to maneuver precisely in confined spaces.
