Although the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show will open its doors next week, Hamann decided that it can’t keep the surprise anymore and showed us a preview of its customization program for the 2012 Bmw 6-Series Cabrio. As you can see from the photos, the car comes with a new front spoiler with integrated daytime running lights, new side sills, a new rear trunk spoiler as well as a new rear bumper with new air inlets and integrated air diffuser.
The design is completed by the new 21-inch Anniversary Evo wheels but also by the new exhaust system. Still, Haman also offers the Edition Race Anonized wheels, showing matte black anodised spokes and titanium bolts.
Regarding the engine of the vehicle, this will be boosted to an impressive 510 hp. Of course, we are talking about the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine (650i) that delivers 300 kW/407 hp and an impressive 600 Nm of torque in the standard form.
The 650i can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.9 seconds and has a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). The first visual impact with the interior shows the brand new steering wheel as well as several accessories made of the finest black anodise aluminium.
Upon request, Hamann can produce anything your heart's desires – from personalised foot mats to embroidered headrests or even fitting the entire interior with the finest leathers - all made with the highest degree of craftsmanship and precision.
The new BMW 6-Series Convertible gives you a luxurious and active driving experience, and this can be seen in the appeal and the sportiness of its exteriors. You have the long bonnet, the long wheelbase, flat waistline and the recessed passenger compartment all following the typical proportions of a BMW convertible. The lines that you see here are simply eye-catching and the surfaces are carefully sculpted, and their precise interaction helps give the new 6-Series its outstanding beauty.
There are also lines that project from the front of the car and flows throughout its full length. It further features curved surfaces on the body, reminding you of waves and how they move when the bow of a motor boat breaks through the water. The waistline surface also follows the same boat deck design philosophy.
The front end: Moving forward and more focused on the road
The front end of the new BMW 6-Series Convertible highlights the car’s dynamic appeal. You have the big BMW kidney grille, which slopes forward, giving the car its “shark nose” and the sense that it is rushing forward. It also has a wide air intake, strong wheel arches, and a contoured bonnet. All of these hint at the powerful engine right under the hood as well as the superior roadholding of the car. The outer edges of the front apron have top quality chrome elements that help make the car appear wider, while optional fog lights have three LED units and are located in front of these chrome decorations.
The BMW 6-Series Convertible makes use of xenon headlights in the signature twin round look. These headlights are visually cut by an accent strip across the top. You can, however, opt to have these accent trims replaced with LED lights if you opt for Adaptive Headlights. The daytime running lights also use LED. These LED light rings have bright white light that illuminates the highly distinguishable front end. You can find a horizontal strip of light just beneath the daytime running lights, and these are used to indicate direction.
