This also confirms that the new 6 Series range will boast a canvas roof rather than the increasingly popular retractable hard top.
An apparently fake rear-window also suggests the cabriolet model will adopt the same recessed window arrangement as the current model.
The overall appearance of the new 6 Series isn't expected to change greatly from the current model, although BMW is reported to have refined every panel.
The new coupe and cabriolet line-up will also mimic the current range on grade and engine type.
