Woodcliff Lake, NJ. – September 15, 2015 – 3:00 AM EDT… Today, BMW M GmbH presented the exclusive BMW M6 Competition Edition at the 66th Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA). The 2016 Competition Edition 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.

 

To experience the special BMW M vehicle performance dynamics on the track, M6 Competition Edition customers will receive a Performance Center Voucher upon delivery. The coupon provides each owner with a special opportunity to visit the BMW Performance Center Driving School of their liking for an exclusive half-day instructor led driving experience.

 

Limited to 120 units worldwide and 100 in the U.S., the BMW M6 Competition Edition is available at selected retailers for $164,900 plus Destination and Handling. For more information please contact your local dealer.
