BMW M6 Convertible spy shots – Click above for high-res image gallery

BMW unveiled its 6 Series Coupe concept at this year's Paris Motor Show, giving us a preview at what the next-generation Sixer will look like when it debuts sometime next year. Fear not, M6 fans – this latest set of spy shots clearly shows that BMW has every intention of giving its latest grand tourer the high-power treatment.

Aside from the revised styling of the next-gen 6 Series, we can clearly see a set of large wheels wrapped in fat tires, not to mention the M-signature quad-exhaust pipes out back. Expect the M6 to use the same twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 setup that will debut in the new M5 sedan, meaning power numbers should be somewhere around 560 horsepower and 530 pound-feet of torque. It all sounds delicious, and we can't wait to see how the M treatment looks on the even sleeker coupe.

      I think BMW is sort of lost design wise, the Bangle-era things were hideous, and the new ones are sort of boring. The concept for this thing looked like a consideration for the current generation.

      having worked on bmws at a dealer for past 3 years, my fav out of any bmws, m's or not, are the e63/e64 with sport package and a 6 spd man... nothin else like it. the sound, the room, most comfy
      driving position, best interior, and trick cupholders.

      Convertible. Meh. Slim chance it'll hit the states.

      I'm sure it's good but prefer my sports cars with the top affixed. S2000 is the exception.

        You're kidding right, about half the 6 series sells in the U.S. were rag tops. Expect it the same time as the coupe.

      Don't love the looks of the current model but this one looks to be less offensive and much less interesting. Can't say for certain because of the camo but it reminds me of the last Pontiac GTO in overall shape. I would have thought we'd see something a little more interesting, particularly with the A5/S5 out there.

      is it just me or are all of the new BMW 2011 models (5 and 6 series particularly) about as boring as a visit to the buick car configurator? the Z, 6, and refreshed 3 series coupes (e63, e92) have been the only decent looking models of the past five years.

      Too bad the soft top looks carried over from the current model. I was hoping they'd either figure out a way to make the flying buttresses look well-tailored or just eliminate them altogether. Even though it's a very well-made top, between the way the bows make it look like a polygon and the rear-window treatment, it looks like it's the sloppiest in the industry. The novelty of using the rear window as the wind deflector doesn't seem to outweigh the styling drawbacks. For 6er money, there has to be a more elegant solution.
