Spyshots of the 2012 BMW 6 Series both coupe and convertibles have been seen around quite a bit and recently they’ve been dropping some of the camouflage as well but one particular model, perhaps the most eagerly expected one of the full F12 lineup hasn’t yet been seen around.
Things have changed today, the 20120 F12 BMW M6 has been spotted near the Nurburgring and showed up covered in camo from bumper to bumper.
Beside the obviously less revealing look of the car, the fact that this gave it away as a M6 are the massive and different wheels, the very low profile tires, the quad exhaust layout that’s visible on most M powered Bavarian creations and the drilled brake rotors.
The changes that can be spotted so far are the restyled front bumper and an LED strip used for the turn signal indicators can be found beneath the restyled headlight.
As a typical assumption based on past generations of BMW M6, the F12 variant will use the twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 used in the X5 M the X6 M and soon the M5 saloon but with more grunt, expect somewhere in the best part of 570-580 horsepower or so.
All signs point to a Paris Motor Show debut for the revised 6 Series, so we’d expect the M6 to debut early next year and go on sale as a 2012 model.
