2012 BMW 6-Series Convertible Preview

The new 2012 BMW 6-Series Convertible turned out to be a no-show at this week’s 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show but that hasn’t stopped BMW from releasing full details for its luxurious new drop-top, which should go on sale early next year.

While the previous generation 6-Series was by no means ugly, the styling of the new model is light years apart. A sweeping bonnet, set-back passenger compartment, long wheelbase and flat waistline embody the hallmark proportions of a BMW convertible. The stylish qualities continue into the interior, which is highlighted by the driver-oriented cockpit that wraps the front passenger and rear passengers in a feeling of security.

The new BMW 6-Series Convertible will be available with two engine variants from launch. The twin-turbocharged V-8 powerplant in the 650i Convertible produces 407 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque, while a 320 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque version of BMW’s familiar turbocharged six-cylinder will reside in a new 640i Convertible.

The new BMW 650i Convertible completes the sprint from 0-62 mph in 5.0 seconds and tops out at an electronically limited 155 mph, while the 640i takes 5.7 seconds for the 0-62 mph sprint and is also limited to 155 mph.

Both models feature as standard an eight-speed automatic gearbox, and in certain markets the 640i model will get automatic engine stop-start functionality. The driver can also change gear manually using shift paddles on the steering wheel.
