Detroit 2011: BMW 650i Revealed


The Motor City is absolutely frigid this time of year, but the 2012 BMW 650i Convertible, unveiled today at the Detroit Auto Show, has us dreaming of warmer climates that would be appropriate for the Bavarian firm's newest droptop boulevard cruiser.

Powered by BMW's newest 4.4L twin-turbo V8, the 650i will put its 400 horsepower and 450 lb-ft to the ground thanks too a 6-speed manual and an 8-speed automatic. 60 mph comes up in 4.9 seconds, while the top can be lowered in only 19 seconds. A 10 inch LCD screen dominates the cabin, while a heads-up display is optional.

Compared to the awkward styling of the previous 650i, the new car has grown into its hefty shape, with an aggressive new front end and a less pear-shaped rear end. No mention of a hardtop version, but we wouldn't doubt it considering the coupe's long history. We were a little surprised that a hardtop convertible wasn't offered like the 3-Series, but evidently there's a method to BMW's madness.
