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

    Video: GT Masters series BMW Alpina B6 racer flies over barrier, takes out porta-potty at 'Ring
    1310329320

    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 ...

    Although we've already sunned ourself behind the wheel of the 2012 BMW 650i Convertible, we've been eagerly awaiting its 6 Series Coupe companion. BMW had led us to believe that only the twin-turbo V8 650i would make its way to North American consumers, but apparently, that ain't necessarily so. While we will indeed receive the 650i Coupe shown above on ...

    It's funny; of the three German luxury brands, BMW was the first to offer a sport-utility vehicle – the X5 – and yet it's the last to create some sort of four-door coupe, the next hot segment that every luxury marque seems to be diving into. Mercedes-Benz is now on its second generation of the CLS, the sexy Audi A7 is now on sale around the ...

Much like BMW's latest batch of concept cars – the M5 and 6 Series Coupe, notably – the ...

    When BMW unveils a new sports coupe, it's an exciting development. If not in its own right, then because you know it's going to lead to a new M model. And so the new 6 Series will lead to a new M6, but not just yet. That's where the M-Sport package comes in. Though the trim pack for the new 6 Series has yet to be released, this solitary (grainy) image ...

    Following closely on the heels of the official images-and-press-blast debut of the 2012 BMW 650i, BMW has let loose video footage of its next big coupe. Having lost the squared-off decklid of the last 6 Series, the 2012 650i is sleeker and more aggressively styled than the last generation. In motion, the coupe looks silky smooth, but ready to pounce ...

    The shark has finally surfaced – the 2012 BMW 6 Series coupe has officially arrived. Its lines are tighter, its bite is more potent and it's heading to your local BMW dealership sometime this fall. Under the hood sits the same 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 that our man Chris Paukert sampled in the convertible. It produces 400 horsepower between ...

Designers filed off some of the more audacious curves in favor of a bit more subtlety. Power from the 650i's twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 now sits at 400 horsepower and 450 ...

    BMW rolled out the excitement this year at the Detroit Auto Show with new debuts like the 1 Series M Coupe and the new 650i Convertible. But while we knew most everything about these powerful new Bavarian two-doors, we were missing one thing – the make-it or break-it factor for many potential buyers: pricing. So with the veils lifted on both these ...

    With dozens of automakers churning out hundreds of different models on a continuous basis, the automotive industry has the potential for being downright chaotic. What saves it from such an eventuality is a measure of order: cars categorized into groups, segments, markets and bodystyles. That, and a certain measure of chronology. You see, when an ...

    BMW wanted to get in on the LA Auto Show festivities, so it dropped most of the details on the 2012 650i convertible without trotting the drop-top onto the show floor. We say "most" of the details, because pricing, options and EPA numbers are still MIA. What we do know is the new Sixer's sheetmetal is inspired by the 6 Series Coupe Concept from Paris ...
