More power for the BMW M6: From July 2015, the Competition Package receives a power increase to 600 hp and comes with it to the level of the BMW M5 30 years Special Edition. The official world premiere of the 600 hp M6 took place at the BMW M Night at the Nurburgring.

The display M6 model features the Austin Yellow color, first launched on the M4 Coupe.

The Competition Package includes a power boost for the 4.4-liter V8 petrol engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology (BMW M6 Coupe/BMW M6 Gran Coupe/BMW M6 Convertible: fuel consumption combined: 9.9/9.9/10.3 l/100 km); has CO2 emissions combined: 231/231/239 g/km). Peak torque also rises, from 680 Nm (501 lb-ft) in standard tune to 700 Nm (516 lb-ft), and is available across an extremely wide rev band – between 1,500 and 6,000 rpm.

The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is achieved in 3.9 seconds in the BMW M6 Coupe and BMW M6 Gran Coupe or 4.0 seconds in the BMW M6 Convertible. What’s more, the BMW M6 Coupe requires just 11.8 seconds to power from 0 – 200 km/h (124 mph), making it 0.6 seconds faster to the mark than with the previous version of the Competition Package (423 kW/575 hp). The top speed of all Competition models is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph), but can be stoked to 305 km/h (189 mph) by specifying the optional M Driver’s Package.

The Competition Package includes various measures designed to appreciably enrich the cars’ handling: the chassis technology is tuned precisely to the performance characteristics of the powertrain, the springs, dampers and anti-roll bars all get firmer tuning. The Active M Differential on the final drive works with its own control unit to further improve traction, allowing the driver to accelerate even more dynamically out of tight corners, for example. The steering with M-specific Servotronic function has more direct mapping while the M Dynamic Mode of the DSC (Dynamic Stability Control) system is focused even more intently on delivering sporty handling.

Externally, the BMW M6 Competition models make hearts beat faster with exclusive 20-inch M light-alloy wheels (double-spoke 601M, bi-colour) and mixed tires, plus black chrome twin tailpipes for the sports exhaust system.

The BMW M6 Coupe, BMW M6 Gran Coupe and BMW M6 Convertible with Competition Package will be available from July 2015.
