It’s sheer desirability that the BMW 650i convertible is all about. It looks stunning, especially with the hood down, and by Indian standards this is a full-fledged exotic. The long silhouette, those mean-looking hooded brows, the super-wide ‘V’ on the bonnet and the gorgeous skinning results in the perfect interplay of curves and surfaces. Some, however, don’t appreciate the way the rear spoiler blends with the boot.
The soft-top doesn’t take too much away from the design and the 6-series looks great even with the roof up. You expect the long doors of this car to be really heavy, but they aren’t. That’s because they are made of aluminium while the fenders and boot lid are made of plastic to help keep the weight down. Still at 1,935kg, it’s no lightweight; far from it.
Built on a slightly shortened 5-series platform, with struts and a lower wishbone up front and a multi-link rear.
