The BMW 6 Series Cabriolet is in the latter stages of pre-reveal testing, but has only now been caught in spy shots with its top down. The car's cloth-top lines are the same as on the current generation, slightly arched on top and running down into buttresses on either side of the vertical rear window that also serves as a wind deflector.
Even on the slightly rounder 2010 6 Series Cab, putting the top down makes the car seem a little longer. But with the streamlined body of the next iteration giving the appearance of more length in general, to our eyes this new car is fills our field of vision like the S.S. Tirpitz with its top stowed. Even so, 7 Series engines should give it plenty of motivation.

We look forward to checking it out at the Paris Motor Show in 90 days, if it fits...

      I hope it's just the disguise on the body, but the proportions look off. It looks too long.

      Any longer, and all CEO owners would select the ultimate BMW premium option: gas barbecue grill in the back with a jacuzzi filled with scantily clad women.

      That front overhang is ridiculous. This design is looking really porky....

      Looks kinda boring already... Maybe its that color..

      The CL63 just destroys the new 6 look wise...

      It's an old Chrysler Sebring! I wondered where Alamo dumped their fleet...

      Not to be unduly harsh or anything, but take away the twin-kidney grille and replace it with something rather pedestrian (with a plastic honeycomb grid), then slap on a Ford oval and you've got yourself the 2011 Thunderbird!

      Looking at the design direction BMW is currently taking I'm really glad that I have a 135i. People say it's ugly but at least it's interesting looking. The new F01, F10, F11, it's all so boring looking.

      BMW needs another bangle, not this damned 90s saussagefest again.

      Gee, another completely derivative design form BMW.

      Its getting to where there is no reason to click on a BMW spy-shot story anymore...they seem to have decided on one basic design and are making the entire line-up look the same.
