BMW 6 Series Video Highlights

Like a stream of water that inexorably carves out its own channel, powerful shapes and flowing contours shape the entire body of the BMW 6 Series Convertible. Sporting proportions, inspired by the elegance of flowing water.
Excitement arises on the surface. At the very first sight, the design of the BMW 6 Series Convertible captures the dynamics of the driving experience. The flat, extended car body and the broad rear add power and character. At the same time generous areas disappear in the flow of lively power lines creating an elegant interplay between light and shade.

With the roof open, the waistline surrounds the entire passenger compartment, separating it from the outside and lending the interior an exclusive intimacy. When closed, the distinctly extended fin roof continues the contours of the body and, with its elegant coupé roof line impressively emphasises the exclusive charisma of the BMW 6 Series Convertible.

Equally charismatic is the focused look of the bi-xenon headlights. The unmistakeable LED rings of the daytime running lights and the accented trim distinguish the front end. Together with the low position of kidney grille with its slight forward lean and the sweep of the bonnet, it clearly illustrates the focus of the BMW 6 Series Convertible: namely, the road.




Interior 
Ambience.
Enter and never want to get out again. Fine leather, precious wood, perfect craftsmanship and a love of detail create a breathtaking atmosphere in the BMW 6 Series Convertible. At night the optional ambient lighting immerses the interior in a warm orange, creating a distinctive mood.
Dynamic, flowing lines and generous open spaces – the design of the BMW 6 Series Convertible continues systematically inside the vehicle as well. While your gaze follows the harmonious shapes, inspiration comes from small details with exclusive accents. Alongside high-quality materials, curved interior trim strips and chrome-plated applications emphasise the sportingly elegant passenger compartment.

With the ambient lighting option, LED lighting strips in the upper section of the door trim, the map pockets and other selected sites emit a warm orange tone. The light curtains shape the whole interior, creating a feeling of space, even in the dark, and an exclusive atmosphere.



Spaciousness.
Keeping your head clear – even with the roof closed. The BMW 6 Series Convertible appears open at all times. The generous interior offers exclusive driving fun and unique comfort for each of the four passengers.
With the soft-top open, nothing hovers between your head and the sky – but even with the roof closed, there is no shortage of headroom. As a genuine 2+2 seater, the BMW 6 Series Convertible offers you luxurious spaciousness. The wave-shaped flow of clear lines combined with generous dimensions, virtually expanding the interior . At the same time the whole interior offers an exclusive intimacy.

The instrument panel curves upwards in front of the driver and passenger, opening a broad horizon, while the door surfaces in the front draw inwards slightly, encircling the cockpit. Dynamic areas prevail throughout the interior, changing smoothly from convex to concave, surrounding the passengers and conveying a pleasant feeling of security.

TwinPower turbo V8 petrol engine 
in the BMW 650i.

With the BMW 6 Series Convertible, long distances become sprints. Just a brief press of the accelerator unleashes the power of the V8 petrol engine. In every corner you sense the close contact with the road; with each acceleration you are captivated by the sonorous sound of the eight cylinders.
This is how travelling becomes your favourite sport: the V8 engine in the BMW 650i with petrol direct injection and TwinPower Turbo accelerates with an outstanding 300 kw (407 hp) and a maximum torque of 600 Nm. At the same time, the 8-speed sports automatic transmission keeps the engine in the optimum revving range and shifts almost imperceptibly while offering you supreme travelling comfort.

Centrally fitted exhaust turbochargers in the V of the cylinder banks permit an especially compact engine design and hence a low weight. The combination of systematic lightweight chassis construction and optimised aerodynamics produces unique agility, perfect road-holding and absolutely precise handling.


BMW EfficientDynamics.
Enhancing driving pleasure and so much more besides: BMW EfficientDynamics represents a suite of intelligent technologies that markedly reduce fuel consumption and emissions while simultaneously boosting the performance of the BMW 6 Series Convertible.
The underlying principle is very straightforward: minimise waste, maximise energy use. Brake Energy Regeneration, for example, charges the battery with the power produced by the engine when the BMW 6 Series Convertible is coasting or braking, freeing power output for acceleration. Other innovative measures include electromechanical power steering and precise aerodynamic design. The engines of the BMW 6 Series Convertible feature performance-boosting technology such as TwinPower turbochargers and petrol direct injection, and extract more power from considerably less fuel.

Fewer CO2 emissions, more driving pleasure: this is BMW Efficient Dynamics.
Connectivity



Head-Up Display.
One second and 28 metres. This is the time required to take your eyes off the road and read 100 km/h on the speedometer. The Head-Up Display projects the current speed or navigation instructions directly into your field of vision while your eyes stay on the road.
The clear, distinct colours make it easy for you to recognise important information, such as the pedestrian warning from BMW Night Vision or the instructions from Lane Change Warning. If required, the currently applicable speed limit and route directions from the navigation system can also be displayed. Particularly helpful at complicated motorway exits or confusing junctions is the clear display showing the correct lane to take.

For the first time the information is projected onto the windscreen of the BMW 6 Series Convertible in full colour and is clearly legible in all lighting conditions. To ensure that the information is at the driver’s eye level, the height of the Head-Up Display can be adjusted. All in all, it enables you to register information much faster, without having to take your eyes off the road.


BMW Night Vision.
Safer nighttime driving. BMW Night Vision, an innovation from BMW ConnectedDrive, can see in the dark and warns the driver of any approaching danger that is located outside of the range of the headlights.
An infrared camera positioned in the BMW kidney grille reveals objects up to 300 metres ahead of the vehicle. Pedestrians and cyclists are identified and highlighted on the Control Display. Three processors simultaneously calculate all movements outside of the vehicle and the course of the BMW 6 Series Convertible. Should the system detect any danger of a collision, the driver receives a warning on the Control Display or on the Head-Up Display in the form of a symbol that shows the position of the person outside of the vehicle.

Functionality.
Are aesthetics and functionality mutually exclusive? Not in the BMW 6 Series Convertible. It has a luggage compartment that offers a convincingly large amount of storage space whether the roof is open or closed and an interior in which up to four people can travel comfortably even on long journeys.
The locking central armrest and two drink holders in the central console offer ample storage space for all those indispensable travel accessories. Larger items of luggage fit effortlessly into the generous boot. With the roof closed, its 350 litres provide enough space for two golf bags or up to five crates of water. When the roof is opened, it folds away so compactly that you still have 300 litres of stowage space.

The BMW 6 Series Convertible becomes even more flexible with Original BMW Accessories. Examples include the precisely fitted, multifunctional luggage compartment mat with folding box and boot sill protector.

The rear-mounted transport platform conveniently carries two bicycles for sporting performances away from the road. A click-on system makes it easy to mount the platform on the car, with no tools required. The boot lid remains easily accessible and the roof can still be opened and closed. All of these features helped the system to win the red dot award for innovative product design in 2009.

Driver orientation.
As soon as you take the wheel for the first time, you will sense how perfectly the BMW 6 Series Convertible has been constructed for you. Every surface and every line, every switch and every display. All the essentials are designed perfectly with the driver in mind and positioned exactly where you intuitively expect them to be.
To the left of the steering wheel the switch for Driver assistance systems and the light settings. Directly in front of you the well-arranged cockpit with all the information relevant to driving and safety, which the full-colour Head-Up Display from BMW ConnectedDrive projects directly into your field of vision if required. And finally the steering wheel itself, which sits firmly in the hands.

If your gaze wanders slightly to the right it will automatically alight upon the optional free-standing 10.2-inch full-colour display. Not far below, your right hand will intuitively find the gear shift lever and the Dynamic Driving Control on the central console. Next to it, and also within easy reach of the front passenger is the iDrive Controller which, among other functions, controls the navigation and infotainment systems. And even that is so remarkably easy: right to continue, left for back and press to select.

Setting the climate control function in your BMW 6 Series Convertible to the desired temperature is just as easy. Everything you need for this setting is also positioned on the central console and is just as intuitive to operate. And you can then concentrate on what is really important – sheer driving pleasure.

Camera systems.
A clear view in unclear situations with innovations from BMW ConnectedDrive: up to five cameras give the BMW 6 Series Convertible a clear view of any situation.
Two front-end Side View cameras are integrated in the front bumper, one directed to the left and one to the right. Both images are shown simultaneously on the free-standing Control Display to give you a clear view when carrying out parking manoeuvres.

The Rear View camera also provides welcome support when parking. Interactive lane lines in the image inform the driver whether or not the parking space is large enough. The zoom function allows you to adjust the image so that you can attach a trailer to the tow bar without the need for further assistance.

The Top View cameras in the wing mirrors complete the camera package. Together with the data from the Rear View camera the system generates a bird's eye image of the BMW 6 Series Convertible and its current location. Whether you are entering or leaving a parking space, carrying out every manoeuvre is simple and safe.

Top and side view are constituents of the optional Surround View.

Lifestyle collection.
Weekend excursion. Business appointment. Sport. Regardless of your aim, the BMW 6 Series Convertible guarantees you a sporting and elegant appearance at all times – as does your luggage. The exclusive BMW Lifestyle products are the perfect travelling companions, impressing with the same elegance and dynamism as the BMW 6 Series Convertible.
Unique travelling comfort coupled with sporting dynamics. In the BMW 6 Series Convertible, even long distances become pleasurable. And the stylish black travel bag from the BMW Business Collection offers plenty of space for your luggage.

Even during short stays and business appointments, the BMW Business Collection guarantees an elegant appearance. The lightweight, convenient business bag and the practical document case have an impressively elegant leather and nylon design and include space for important documents. A removable compartment for laptops in the document case provides secure storage and protection against scratches.

The exclusive design of BMW Lifestyle products not only impresses in business situations. With the BMW Golf Collection you will score points on every course – regardless of your handicap. As well as ample space for your equipment, the golf bag and golf cart bag also include compartments for your scorecards, golf balls and valuables. Both golf bags can be stowed conveniently in the generous boot of the BMW 6 Series Convertible. And there is still room for the spacious Golf Sports Bag with “BMW Golfsport” logo and the functional Shoe Carrier to join you on your way to the green.
