Spy Shots: BMW 6 Series Convertible continues its striptease

As BMW moves forward with the development of the next-generation 6 Series, more of the swirly camouflage is stripped away, revealing that the next Sixer will be significantly more rakish than the model currently on sale. In this latest batch of spy photos, we can clearly see the revised front fascia with the larger interpretation of BMW's twin kidney grilles and the stretched headlamp cluster encompassing a set of LED turn signals. Around back, it appears that the convertible top won't change too much from the current car, featuring the same upright rear window with flying buttress sides.

Under the hood, expect to see the turbocharged six- and eight-cylinder engines from the 7 Series. A more potent M6 isn't necessarily out of the cards, but with BMW reportedly working on a high-output version of the EfficientDynamics concept car, we're not sure if an M-badged 6 Series will have much place within BMW's lineup (not that that's ever stopped the automaker before). What's more, rumors continue to swirl about the possibility of a four-door 6 Series to compete with the Mercedes-Benz CLS and upcoming Audi A7 Sportback.

For now, though, we'll just watch as BMW peels more camo off of the coupe and convertible models, and we certainly won't rule out the possibility of a Paris Motor Show debut later this year. See the latest set of spy shots for yourself in the gallery below.
