Drivers who love engaging their left foot will rejoice that M6 performance variants can be had with a 6-speed manual transmission in lieu of the 7-speed double-clutch automatic. For just 100 buyers, there is a limited Frozen Brilliant White Edition convertible. All 2014 BMW 6 Series models receive updates to their navigation systems.
New 2013 6 Series Gran Coupes debuted in spring, 2012 offering the same features and powertrains as the coupes and convertibles, and the 650i models' TwinPower turbo V8 is upgraded to 445 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque, 45 more horses and 30 more lb-ft than in 2012. The M6 Coupe and Convertible boast BMW's most powerful production engine ever, a 560-hp 4.4-liter TwinPower turbo V8, up five hp with the same 500 lb-ft of torque as the V10 it replaces, and 25 percent more fuel efficient.
The 2012 BMW 6 Series is about as all-new as an all-new model can be. Aside from an overwhelming list of new features and technologies, the 6 Series lineup will now include a 6-cylinder turbo engine option (640i Coupe and 640i Convertible) and available all-wheel drive (650i xDrive Coupe and 650i xDrive Convertible). Later we'll see a high-performance M6 model and a first-ever 4-door 6 Series in the spirit of the Mercedes-Benz CLS and Audi A7.
This year's Sport Package is upgraded to include new 19-inch forged alloy wheels, an anthracite-color headliner (Alcantara in the Coupe or fabric in the Convertible), dark chrome exhaust tips, a contoured hood, sport-tuned exhaust and sport seats with Shadowline trim.
The 6 Series receives a modest exterior freshening, with a new grille and front end, as well as new headlight lenses with LED turn signals and power-folding mirrors. Interior changes include a revised iDrive with six programmable memory buttons, while models equipped with the Sport Automatic receive steering-wheel paddle shifters. Dynamic Cruise Control is made standard while the Lane Departure Warning System is added to the option list.
A powerful look, a powerful personality and a superb driving demeanor elevate the BMW 650i Convertible to a rare level of distinction and desirability in the world of premium convertibles. While several of its styling details may be open to some rather heated debate, there's no denying that this 2+2 offers a stunning driving experience for those who can afford its price of entry. A potent V8 engine, finely-tuned chassis and exceptional amenities make the 650i Convertible a seriousand some might contend superiorcompetitor to prestige drop-top models from Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche, in many cases delivering more absolute performance for considerably less money when comparably equipped.

"The 2012 640i Convertible is a great car to own. It has all the bells and whistle but it lacks power. The 650 would have been a better choice but I am waiting for a ECU remap to come out which will increase the 325 hp to 380 hp. After the ecu remap will make the 640 more fun to drive."

"I enjoy driving to work year round in my 2012 BMW 650i xdrive M sport convertible. The fit and finish is impressive and the handling and M sport exhaust provides pleasure every day. I owned a 2007 Audi S8 prior to the 650 and the BMW is quicker, sounds better, and is more fun to drive. Strangers frequently tell me how good looking (they did for the S8 as well) the car is. With winter 19 inch wheels and blizzaks instead of the summer 20 inch run flats traction was never a problem even in Wisconsin."
