2011 BMW 6 Series was spotted

Previously spotted in convertible prototype form, the new 2011 BMW 6 Series has now been spotted in hardtop form.

Taking a closer look at the prototype in question, you'll note a couple of cutlines in the roof that indicate this may very well be a retractable hardtop, which means BMW is likely to launch both Coupe and Convertible versions and not just a single model like it did with the new 2010 Z4 Roadster.

There are rumors that the 2011 BMW 6-Series will be offered with two different versions, a more luxurious GT and an aggressive sports model.

The spy shots reveal a much sleeker look and a wider, more purposeful stance. The wheelbase will also be slightly longer than the current car, but overhangs, front and back, will be shorter.

The 6 cylinder twin turbo will develop326 hp. The engines will be offered with a choice of two transmissions, a 8 speed automatic and a 7-speed DCT.

For diesel fans, BMW is preparing the unit that can be found today in the 635d, while a tri-turbo, 354 hp 6 cylinder unit may also be considered.

The production BMW 6 Series is expected to go on sale by the end of this year as a 2011 model.
