The exterior and the interior
Next to the impressive exterior color combination, customers can also opt for BMW Individual rear lettering and BMW Individual 19" V-spoke light-alloy wheels. On request 20" are also available. All body paint variants can be combined with the BMW Individual High Gloss Shadow Line or BMW Individual Exterior Line Aluminum satinated.
For the interior, the Individual range adds full leather trim in fine-grain Merino stems available for the seats, door trim panels, center console and instrument panel. It can be ordered in Platinum, Champagne, Amaro Brown, Cohiba Brown or Opal White version.
Any option of leather can be combined with three variants of BMW Individual interior trim strips, Piano Finish Black or Plane Auburn dark wood.
Under the hood everything remains unchanged: the usual 4.4-liter V8 engine with a direct injection and turbo-charging technology will deliver a total of 400 HP between 5,500 and 6,400 rpm with 450 lb/ft of peak torque between 1,750 and 4,500 rpm. The engine can be mated to a six-speed manual gearbox or the BMW’s new eight-speed Sport Automatic transmission. Either way, the top speed remains limited to 155 mph.
This new package will help the 650i Convertible staying on top of its competitors even more. Models like Mercedes SL-Class , Jaguar XK Convertible or Porsche 911 Cabriolet will have lots of reason to fear. Maybe expect the Porsche who has always been more powerful that the 650i.
The new 650i Convertible goes on sale at a price of $91,375. Prices for the new Individual package will be announced closer to official launch.
