2012 BMW 6 Series Coupe

Least Expensive Model Now The Best 2012 BMW 6 Series Coupe - Click above for high-res image gallery We tried the open version back in January and, despite a couple of BMW's "I'm a niche car" choices for the model that are open to debate, largely enjoyed the 6 Series Convertible. Despite a serious keys-in-hand base price of $91,375 for the skybox 650i, the 6 Series is perhaps the best overall package in this small segment of near-millionaire large convertibles and coupes (i.e. sub Bentley/Aston Martin). Just considering sheer finish and accommodation for four real-sized adults, this... Read More

    Official: BMW recalling 1.3 million 5 and 6 Series models worldwide
    1332802920

    BMW has announced it is recalling a whopping 1.3 million 5 Series and 6 Series vehicles from the 2003 to 2010 model years. Of those, Reuters notes that some 368,000 examples were sold in the U.S. – most of them sedans like the one above. It doesn't sound like too difficult of a problem to fix, but the automaker says the cars' battery cable covers ...

    Geneva: 2013 BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe finally shows up
    1331114280

    The 2013 BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe may have debuted a full three months ago (time flies, huh?), but we're just now seeing it in person for the first time here at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. The prolonged debut almost makes sense for BMW's big coupe, since it's a late entry in a segment that already includes stunners like the Mercedes-Benz CLS, Audi A7, ...

    BMW and its commitment to maximizing the potential of every model continues with the 2012 640d xDrive. It's the first time the 6 Series has used a diesel engine, and it sound like it won't disappoint if 'sporty' and 'oil-burning' are your prerogatives: the 3.0-liter inline six with TwinPower turbos throws off 313 horsepower and 465 pound-feet, with all ...

    What's the new M6 made of? Just like the last generation, it takes all the best bits from the M5 and distills them into two door form. And this time, the convertible comes first. At its heart, the M6 Coupe and Cabriolet are all about the engine, and as expected both models use the same twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 (ironically codenamed S63) to output ...

The 640i is the first variant of the segment-splitting "4+1" sedan, which gets power from the ubiquitous TwinPower turbocharged and ...

We've got all the images right here in one monstrous gallery, which also includes some behind-the-scenes shots of the car during development. (Yes, we love seeing BMW stylists' sculpting clay.)

    Better late than never, right? We're now on the second generation of the Mercedes-Benz CLS, the luxury sedan that kicked off the whole "four-door coupe" craze. Since then, Volkswagen countered with the CC, Porsche launched the Panamera, and Audi won us over with its A7. So what about BMW? Now that the big 6 Series coupe has taken hold, the German ...

    There aren't a lot of all-wheel-drive convertibles on the market – but most of them come from German automakers. In fact nearly all of them come from the Volkswagen Group portfolio: the Audi A5, TT and R8, the Porsche 911, Bentley Continental GTC, Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder and Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport. But BMW is not about to let its arch rival ...

    Hamann has a knack for taking already impressive-performing vehicles and turning up the heat a few degrees. The styling choices along the way are hit or miss, but the vehicles always turn heads. One of the tuning company's latest vehicles is the Hamann 6 Series Cabriolet, which is quite clearly a BMW 6 Series with a host of upgrades. The most notable ...

    Nice as it may be, the BMW 6 Series convertible doesn't really make our heart beat any faster. It's a soft, plush open-top tourer, and though the 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 underhood certainly doesn't skimp on the power, it doesn't really make for an enthusiastic driving experience. Enter Alpina, the BMW tuning house that has given us the 7 ...

One day, however, we would wind up at a stoplight night to a couple with more money who opted for the AC Schnitzer-tuned versions of both, and our smiles would give ...

    It looks like BMW is out to broaden the 6 Series range. A spy videographer managed to lay lenses on a very camouflaged version of the big 6 with two extra doors. Specifics on the 6 Series GranCoupe are sparse at the moment, though odds are that the suits at BMW are taking aim at the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class with the new model. Does BMW need yet another ...

    Report: Why was this BMW dealership abandoned in 1988 with cars still inside?

    In 1988, Citation Motors, a BMW Dealership in Ontario, shut its doors with little explanation. The simple answer seems to be that the dealership had its concession license revoked, but nobody seems to be able to track down why exactly. Endras BMW, another Toronto-based Bimmer peddler, did some digging, but didn't come up with too much. Whatever the case, ...

    We're in the middle of yet another slow striptease of prototypes from BMW, this time starring the 2013 6 Series Gran Coupe. We've seen patent filings and two sets of spy shots, not to mention the original 'concept' that – unsurprisingly – looks very, very similar to the almost-ready development cars caught out on the road. For round three, ...

    The 2012 BMW 6 Series coupe will hit dealerships on October 1st, and it can be yours for a cool $83,000. That is, before you tick any of the boxes for options. BMW just launched the online configurator for the 650i coupe, and with every option selected, you'll go just a hair over $100,000. While the 650i coupe goes on sale first, BMW will also offer the ...

We'll likely see the finished product at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, and judging by these latest spy shots, the big four-door is indeed nearing completion. Much like the 6 Series coupe, we can ...

    Tire barriers at race tracks are there for a reason. Namely, safety, but they can't protect against every scenario. Like, say, going airborne over said tire barrier and hitting a hapless porta-potty. That's exactly what happened at the Nürburgring this weekend during the fourth round of this year's ADAC GT Masters championship. Towards the start of ...

    BMW is expanding its 6 Series line. The automaker has just announced information on the 2012 640d Coupe and 640d Convertible. The two-door oil-burners aren't expected to make it Stateside, and that's a pity, as they make use of a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter straight six with 313 horsepower and a hefty 464 pound-feet of torque. All that twist helps the ...
