BMWBLOG just returned from California where for two weeks we have tested the 2014 BMW M6 Coupe. Painted in the beautiful Sakhir Orange color and featuring the Competition Package, the M6 Coupe has proven to be the best companion one could hope for.
Over 2,000 miles, the 2014 BMW M6 Coupe delighted us with its athletic capabilities, sublime elegance and head-turning design that makes the premium coupe stand out in a sea of high-end cars that one can see daily in the Los Angeles area.
And to top it off, the Competition Package made things even more interesting during spirited driving along the coast and on the beautiful Pacific Coast Highway. The 575 horsepower Competition Package comes with a series of upgrades to the chassis and ride settings.
The M engineers have revised the suspension and damping systems, the stabilizer bars have also been more tautly tuned. In the BMW M6 this adjustment has resulted in a lowering of the car by around 10 millimeters. The Competition Package also has stiffer front axle while the Active M Differential offers improved traction.
All of these upgrades and the super aggressive Sport+ mode put a smile on our face on every corner and turn we have encountered.
With a price sticker at over $120,000 and its 575 horsepower, the 2014 M6 Coupe steps into the territory of high-end sportscars and its design and M-engineering make it an interesting buy, even for those that have several cars in their garage.
Stay tuned for the full test drive review and in the mean time enjoy the beautiful photography!
