The Top Gear car review:BMW 6 Series Convertible
For:640d diesel is an absolute gem, well-equipped
Against:Restricted boot-space will irritate committed grand-tourers
What is it?
The old 6-Series was seemingly designed by a team of blindfolded chimps throwing parts into a bath in a BMW spares warehouse. So this time BMW has given it a more sensible getup, as well as ditching any notion of it being a sportscar. Fret not, though – it drives even better now, and it’s still flash, except now in a “I’ve got a second home in the Seychelles” sort of way, as opposed to a “I’ve got the means to have you kneecapped” kind of way.
Take note: the 6 has just been handed a (minor) facelift, which in true German fashion has made every little bit of the 6 a tiny bit better. Nice.
