First pics - BMW 6 Series

2008-11-17 08:14

It may come as a surprise to some, but these are the first spy shots of the new BMW 6 Series convertible.

Snapped by our spies before they saw the coupe, the new drop top Six will come with a traditional canvas roof rather then the retractable hard tops that are so popular these days.

This could be for both technical and design reasons since manufacturers find it difficult to stow a large metal roof without cutting into the luggage space by too much.

Based on these images, it appears the overall shape of the 6 Series won't be too different from the outgoing model, although every panel will be considered.

The new coupe and convertible will likely be equipped with the same engine range as the current model.
