Today, BMW presented the exclusive BMW M6 Competition Edition, which stands for exceptional individuality, paintwork colors, BMW Individual components made of high-tech carbon fiber, fine leathers with coordinated contrast stitching and a range of unusual details. Limited to 100 units in the US, the Competition Edition is available exclusively for the BMW M6 Coupe with the further honed Competition Package and with a BMW M Performance Driving Center Experience Voucher.
The 2016 Competition Package has also been released for three model variants: 2016 BMW M6 Coupe, BMW M6 Grand Coupe and the BMW M6 Convertible.
Defined by outstanding performance, the three model variants are powered by a 4.4 liter V8 BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology producing 600 bHP with a power boost increasing peak torque from 500 lb-ft to 516 lb-ft delivered between an extremely wide rev band of 1,500 and 6,000 rpm. The increased power, dynamics and handling is owed to the same principles applied to BMW M vehicles: the chassis technology is tuned precisely to the performance characteristics of the powertrain. Firmer tuning of the springs, dampers and anti-roll bars increase stability, reduce roll and result in a higher level of steering precision.
The BMW M6 Coupe Competition Edition model comes with a choice of two exterior paintwork colors: dazzling Alpine White and luminous Austin Yellow metallic. In Alpine White, the BMW M6 Coupe Competition Edition features striking decorative bodywork stripes in the trademark BMW M colors, as will also be displayed on the new BMW M6 GT3 race car. Forming an attractive contrast, customers can choose between 20-inch light alloy Double Spoke M wheels with performance tires and 20-inch light alloy Double Spoke M wheels with forged black with performance tires. An M Performance Exhaust with carbon fiber tailpipes compliments the sportier design. Along with the BMW kidney grille, door handles and side gills in black chrome and the carbon-fiber exterior mirror caps, they accentuate the extraordinarily sporty and powerful presence of the car. The carbon-fiber M rear spoiler and rear diffuser optimize airflow for increased dynamics.
In the interior, BMW Individual fine-grain Merino full leather in black with contrast stitching – available in Opal White with Alpine White paintwork and in Yellow with Austin Yellow metallic paintwork – highlights the car’s exclusive sporty ambience. “M6 Competition” lettering in metal on the door sills and in the side gill elements, along with the lettering on the cupholder lids, is a further signature feature of the Edition model. The interior trim strips, gear selector and M sports steering wheel spokes are made from fine, lightweight carbon fiber, while the steering wheel rim is lined with elegant Alcantara leather.
M multifunction seats for the driver and front passenger, the BMW Head-Up Display and Harman Kardon Surround Sound System or High-End Surround Sound System by Bang & Olufsen with 16 speakers and output of 1,200 watts are also part of the equipment range.
