Our spies have managed to catch a lightly camouflaged 2012 BMW 6-Series Cabrio with its roof down.

While there isn't much to report, the car looks virtually identical to the Concept 6-Series Coupe which recently debuted at the Paris Motor Show. The only notable differences, aside from the convertible roof, are production-style mirrors and a traditional daul exhaust system.

Under the hood, engine options will likely carryover from the 5-Series. This means we can expect a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline 6 cylinder with 225kW (302 hp/ 306 PS) and a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 with 300 kW (402 hp / 408 PS). For the M6, power will be provided by an optimized twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 with 408 kW (555 hp / 563 PS) to 425 kW (570 hp / 578 PS).

The 6-Series coupe will be unveiled early next year, with the convertible following a few months later.
