The last dying days of March 2011 seems to be the preferred days for the Luxury carmakers to launch their products. Yesterday, you have read about the Audi launching its R8 Spyder Convertible and a variant of the Q5 here in carazoo.com.
But today, we are bringing in some news on the big launch that happened last Friday. BMW India unveiled the new 6 series convertible in Udaipur. The new 650i, a perfect symbiosis of aesthetics, dynamism and flowing elegance in every detail, offers an unmatched open-top driving experience that doesn’t get any better.
The convertible was launched as a petrol variant and can be ordered at BMW dealerships across India. Big things certainly does not come cheap as the price tag bore a price which read as Rs 95,00,000 (ex-showroom).

During the launch, Dr. Andreas Schaaf, President, BMW India said, “The new BMW 6 Series Convertible with its breathtaking aesthetics is the perfect vehicle for an exclusive lifestyle. The elegant silhouette, torquey engine, perfect road holding and refined interiors with perfection to the smallest detail, create an ultra-luxurious open-top driving experience that could not possibly get any better.”
The new BMW 6 Series Convertible sets a benchmark for exclusive open-top driving. Sophisticated styling with aesthetic proportions, elegant lines, sporty ‘shark nose’ of the BMW kidney grille, closeness to the road and wide and low design language make the new BMW 6 Series Convertible appear uncompromisingly dynamic. Exclusive interior with clear driver orientation, sleek styling, masterfully crafted details and room for four adults set a new bar in this segment.
