In 2003, BMW announced the return of the flagship 6-series coupe after a fourteen year absence. Much like the beloved “shark nose” E24 of the 70s and 80s, BMW developed the 6-series on the contemporary 5-series platform, and offered a wide range of engine choices culminating in the ferocious S85 V10-powered M6. For the first time ever, BMW buyers could now have a 6-series in convertible form, which proved a worthy competitor to the Mercedes-Benz SL. The revived 6-series performed well enough to warrant a new generation model which arrived in 2011. The 6-series expanded to include a coupe, convertible, and low-slung four-door “Gran Coupe.” While various engines were offered to European customers, American buyers had but one – the excellent 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged, 400 horsepower V8. Like the Mercedes SL, the 650i favors Grand Touring comfort over outright sportiness, and it truly shines at its intended purpose, with a luxurious cockpit, plenty of high-tech equipment, and that powerful, long-legged V8 to chew up the miles in style and comfort.
This 2012 650i Convertible is offered from the collection of the original owner, and has covered fewer than 8,000 miles since new. It is finished in a striking shade of Vermillion Red over Ebony Nappa leather trim and a black canvas top. Options are abundant, with notable equipment including the Cold Weather Package, Luxury Seating Package, Premium Sound System, Dynamic Damping, Night Vision, Driver Assistance Package, Navigation, and 21-inch wheels. The paintwork and exterior trim are in excellent order, with only some minor curb rash noted on the front wheels. The Carfax report confirms the low mileage and single-owner status, with a minor repair noted on the front bumper, which has been seamlessly corrected. The file contains the original sales agreement, along with full dealer service records, books, spare key, and a high-quality car cover.
Considering their superb cruising ability and driver-focused performance, outstanding low-mileage examples of the F12 650i are becoming increasingly rare. This beautiful convertible has been cherished in an extensive collection since new, and is prime for continued enjoyment on your favorite back roads.
