See More details at http://www.autoblog.gr 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.

Novedades: BMW Serie 6 Cabrio - www.quintamarcha.com
BMW Serie 6 Cabrio www.quintamarcha.com Los cabrios de BMW se remontan a 1937, con el 327. Más de setenta años hasta llegar, en 2004, al Serie 6. Su relevo se llama igual, pero no tiene nada que ver, pues se ha transformado en un descapotable fascinante. Todo en el nuevo Serie 6 Cabrio es espectacular, empezando por las medidas: 4,89/1,89/1,36 metros, ganando 74 mm en longitud y 39 en el ancho, disminuyendo 9 mm la altura. En cuanto a la distancia entre ejes (2,85 m), gana 75 mm. Así pues, sus casi cinco metros de imponente coche, con una línea más estilizada y puntiaguda que antes, pasos de rueda acentuados, baja cintura, capó alargado y habitáculo retrasado, con trazos que los diseñadores alemanes han querido asemejar a las olas del mar, atraen todas las miradas de quienes no quieren perderse tamaño espectáculo. El frontal ha ganado agresividad y dinamismo, con ópticas con anillos luminosos diurnos de leds y xenón para la visión nocturna. Interior excitante La zaga, también un espectáculo, es realmente bella. Los grandes pilotos están dividos en dos, con luces de freno e intermitentes de leds. El Serie 6 Cabrio lleva un techo de capota textil, cuya apertura eléctrica se realiza en 19 segundos, empleando cinco más en cerrarse, operación que se puede completar con el coche circulando hasta 40 km/h. El habitáculo es otra obra de arte por su lujo y exclusividad. La disposición de los asientos es 2+2, siendo los traseros limitados para gente de altura. El puesto de conducción resulta excitante. Desde él se contempla el tablero de instrumentos de tecnología black-panel, combinando mandos redondos con la moderna tecnología de los display. Los sistemas de navegación, telefonía y entretenimiento se controlan de serie con la unidad de mando iDrive, que incluye la pantalla Control Display de 7 pulgadas (opcionalmente puede ser de 10,2) de innovador diseño, que se estrena en el nuevo modelo. Dos motores El Serie 6 Cabrio presenta dos versiones: el 650i y 640i, que utilizan propulsores diferentes. El más potente lleva un V8 de 408 CV, mientras que el pequeño monta un 6 cilindros en línea BMW TwinPower turbo de 320 CV. Ambas variantes se diferencian por el tamaño de las ruedas y las salidas de los escapes (uno a cada lado), que en el primero son rectangulares. En un futuro podría llegar un propulsor diésel. Los dos motores van equipados con Start/Stop y las cifras de consumo que da BMW son ciertamente contenidas: 7,9 l/100 km el 640i y 10,7 el gordo, registros magníficos para un coche que pesa 1.915 kilos (640i), que ofrece una tecnología impresionante, en la que no falta el preciso cambio automático de 8 velocidades, y que tiene una pisada, un dinamismo y un aplomo que impresiona. ¿El precio? No apto para bolsillos deprimidos: 111.500 euros el 650i y 94.400 el 640i. JMA
