The super limited 2016 BMW M6 Competition Package is starting to arrive at U.S. dealerships. Prestige BMW in New Jersey just got their first copy of the super sporty M6 Coupe which goes on sale this month.
Last year, BMW of North America announced a limited edition of the M6 Coupe available to only 100 customers. BMW will offer the sporty coupe in Austin Yellow or Alpine White and will feature the Competition Package unveiled last year with 600 horsepower and 700 Nm of torque (516 lb-ft). Opt for white and BMW includes its famous racing livery colors on the car, mimicking its GT3 race car.
Sprinting from 0 to 60 mph will take the M6 Coupe and Grand Coupe 3.8 seconds with the Competition Package. Top speed is limited at 155 mph, though you can get it to 189 mph by adding the M Driver’s Package.
Firmer suspension is also a part of the package thanks to new springs, dampers and anti-roll bars. Even the existing handling systems are tweaked for better performance, those being the Active M differential, Servotronic speed-sensitive steering and electronic stability control.
To make sure the M6 Competition Package stands out from the crowd, it wears 20-inch light alloy wheels and gets a sports exhaust with black chrome finish and carbon fiber accents.
Inside, fine-grain Merino leather, body-color accent stitching and more carbon fiber accents can be found. A head-up display and premium audio system are also fitted to this high-end M6. An M Performance Steering Wheel is also part of the package.
Just 100 M6 Competition Package cars will be coming to the U.S. For those lucky few who get one, a voucher for a free visit to a BMW Performance Center Driving School will be included. The MSRP was set at $167,195. See more info at Prestige BMW.
