Is this the 2012 BMW 6-Series Convertible?
There seems to be a growing debate on whether this photo of what looks to be the new 2012 BMW 6-Series Convertible is a spyshot of the car or just a creative rendering by someone looking to build a fire off of sheet metal.
The photo, which was first published in Autobild, does resemble what looks to be the new droptop 6-Series convertible. The only question is whether this image is a spyshot or simply an ingenious use of Photoshop.
Well, we did some snooping around and found out that the answer is actually both: the photo was digitally redone, but the car looks to be the real deal.
So how did this happen?
The photo was taken as part of a photo shoot for the car, possibly for a future catalog that the drop-top 6-Series will be included in. Now, if you look at another photo – a grainier one at that – you’ll notice a man bent over at the side of the car trying to fix something. We figure that this photo is the spy shot while the cleaner – and brighter – photo looks to have been a Photoshopped version of the original to make it look a little spankier.
So, there you have it. Feast your eyes on the confirmation of a 2012 BMW 6-Series Convertible. We actually kind of like the rendering done a couple of days ago better, but that’s neither here nor there.
