BMWs next-generation 6 Series coupe and convertible, expected to be introduced in 2011, have been spied in early testing with hints of a retractable hardtop underneath the camouflage.

BMW’s next-generation 6 Series coupe and convertible, expected to be introduced in 2011, have been spied in early testing.  Though heavily camouflaged, the convertible in our photos looks to be longer and lower than the current car, with considerably tighter overhangs front and rear.  It’s hard to see the exact lines of course, but the new 6 Series has a smoother, more streamlined look.

The vehicle spotted testing in Germany has a cloth soft top, but closer examination suggests that this may also be part of the camouflage.  The wrapped decklid gives the impression that this is a convertible, so the next 6’er just might sport a retractable hardtop, to compete with Mercedes’ SL.
