2012 BMW 6 series convertible With the roof open, the waistline surrounds the entire passenger compartment, separating it from the outside and lending the interior an exclusive intimacy. When closed, the distinctly extended fin roof continues the contours of the body and, with its elegant coupé roof line impressively emphasises the exclusive charisma of the BMW 6 Series Convertible. Equally charismatic is the focused look of the bi-xenon headlights. The unmistakeable LED rings of the daytime running lights and the accented trim distinguish the front end. Together with the low position of kidney grille with its slight forward lean and the sweep of the bonnet, it clearly illustrates the focus of the 2012 BMW 6 Series Convertible: namely, the road.
Classical elegance that sets standards: the fully automatic roof convincingly impresses with its excellent thermal and acoustic insulation. It gives the BMW 6 Series Convertible a coupé-like silhouette and, in combination with the drop-down rear window ensures effective ventilation of the interior. Available in three colours, the roof folds into the hood enclosure in the boot at the touch of a button to provide even more fresh air. At speeds of up to 40 km/h it opens in only 19 seconds and closes in 24.
The optional wind deflector helps to counteract irritating wind noises at high speeds. Quickly mounted behind the front seats, the deflector noticeably reduces air turbulence inside the vehicle, thus creating a pleasant driving sensation. If the wind deflector is not needed it disappears compactly inside the luggage space. Even with the roof closed, you and your passengers will enjoy a pleasant open-air driving experience in the BMW 6 Series Convertible. In the extravagant “California” mode, all five windows are lowered while the roof remains closed. And so you are protected from the sun, without having to miss out on the sensation of the wind.
Aesthetics and dynamics cast in aluminium: The exclusive light-alloy wheels for the 2012 BMW 6 Series Convertible are an expression of its sporting character and a powerful connection to the road. The 18-inch star spoke 365 radiates pure elegance and a discreet sporting character, even while stationary. Even more dynamic in their styling: the two 19-inch V-spoke 366 and star spoke 367 light-alloy wheels. The latter have a somewhat lighter appearance thanks to their two-colour design. At the front of the field is the top model: the 20-inch V-spoke 366. Original BMW Accessories increases the range to include the 20-inch Multi-spoke 410 Bicolour with burnished rim edge and black paint finish between the spokes.
