Captivating from the outside, magnificent from the inside. The new BMW 6 Series Convertible.
Words such as "breathtaking", "irresistible" and "flawless" pepper the history of BMW convertibles. And now the brand has added a new chapter to a tradition of open-top cars that stretches back decades. The new BMW 6 Series Convertible fulfils the wishes of discerning automotive aesthetes with its finely honed sense for sporty driving pleasure, groundbreaking luxury and sparkling looks. In the exclusive environs of the premium convertible market, the 2+2-seater makes a convincing case for itself with the most efficient engines, most advanced chassis technology and most innovative comfort, infotainment and safety features in its segment.
A sweeping bonnet, set-back passenger compartment, long wheelbase and flat waistline embody the hallmark proportions of a BMW convertible. The new BMW 6 Series Convertible combines these features with a classic soft-top roof in customary "fin" design. Powerfully contoured surfaces and the surging dynamism of its lines promise assured driving properties. The luxurious ambience of the interior is highlighted by the driver-oriented cockpit set-up and wraps the front passenger and rear passengers in a feeling of exclusive security. Nowhere is the high-class functionality of the interior underlined more prominently than in the redesigned freestanding Control Display of the standard-fitted iDrive control system.
The new BMW 6 Series Convertible is available with two engine variants from launch. The eight-cylinder powerplant in the BMW 650i Convertible produces 300 kW/407 hp, while an exclusive variant of the six-cylinder in-line engine with BMW TwinPower turbo, direct injection and VALVETRONIC --generating 235 kW/320 hp -- has been developed for the BMW 640i Convertible. Both engines team up as standard with an eight-speed Sports automatic gearbox. Standard-fitted BMW EfficientDynamics features include the Auto Start-Stop function in the BMW 640i Convertible.
Chassis technology unmatched in its segment works in tandem with the cutting-edge engines to ensure even greater dynamic capability and a similarly discernible improvement in ride comfort compared to its predecessor. The new BMW 6 Series Convertible comes as standard with Drive Dynamic Control, which allows drivers to choose their own suspension settings, while the Adaptive Drive system is available as an option with electrically controlled dampers and roll stabilisation. In addition to the standard-fitted electromechanical power steering, another unique feature in this segment is the optional Integral Active Steering system.
The new BMW 6 Series Convertible also underlines its progressive character with numerous BMW ConnectedDrive features that none of its rivals can match. The selection of optional driver assistance systems includes a rear-view camera, Surround View, BMW Night Vision with pedestrian recognition and BMW Parking Assistant. The new BMW 6 Series Convertible is the only car in its segment to be available with a Head-Up Display. Making its debut in the new soft top, the latest generation of the system uses a broader palette of colours to create an even more detailed and sharper image.

2012 BMW 650i M Package Coupe Drive and Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 BMW 650i M Package Coupe is no longer the ugly duckling of the BMW family as it now sports a much more modern and elegant design. Gone is slightly awkward mishmash of cut lines replaced by a lowered, stretched and widened car with huge helping of serious road presence. If you like your BMW's shaken and not stirred...this is the one for you.
Performance: In a word...earth stopping. The BMW 650i Coupe's 32-valve V-8, aluminum put our 400 HP with 450 pound feet of torque. And in this case it is the torque that you can really feel a the car pushes you back in the drivers seat like a pissed off samurai when you floor the car in almost any of it's eight...that's right...eight forward gears. BTW: Our tester had the M Sport package which cost $4,400 dollars more and adds body kit, LED fog lights, and an M steering wheel, amoung other expensive goodies.
Ride and handling are really up to you as the BMW lets you select through comfort plus, comfort, sport, and sport plus settings. That's right, while most cars only have three settings the BMW goes to four. And each of the setting actually works so much so that you can instantly feel the difference between comfort and sport. Perhaps the only complaint is the steering which is electronic and somewhat dislocated from the front wheels.

BMW 6 Series Convertible review - What Car?
Read the What Car? BMW 6 Series Convertible review http://bit.ly/vZfyb4
The BMW 6 Series Convertible is a fast and classy car in which to cover hundreds of miles in one go, but until a diesel version comes along, it's certainly not the cheapest. Other luxury convertibles are more fun, too.
