THE 2011 BMW 6-Series Convertible is a car that offers drivers a unique blend of distinctive styling, luxury and sporting performance.

It is a huge improvement over the look of the present 6 I think you'll agree and is elegant and distinctive.

It's longer, lower and wider than the present car with plenty of room for four adults to travel in complete comfort according to the company.

At launch, power will be from a brace of heavyweight turbo petrol engines driving through a standard eight speed automatic gearbox.

The 640i gets a 3.0- litre straight six with 320bhp, while the 650i has a new version of the 4.4-litre V8 fitted with twin turbochargers between the banks of cylinders giving a power output of 407bhp.

The newly developed chassis common to both cars comes with drive dynamic control, which allows the driver to choose the responsiveness of gearbox, steering and accelerator.

And the adaptive drive system is available as an option which gives electrically controlled dampers and anti-roll stabilisation.

The cabin is both driver-focused and comfortable for passengers. High-quality materials and carefully co-ordinated colours combine to produce an ambience of luxury and stylish functionality.
