In order to celebrate BMW’s centenary, the Japanese branch of the company decided to unveil a couple of special edition models. The latest to hit the Internet (as deliveries will take a little longer) is the BMW M6 Celebration Edition model which comes with a hefty power increase compared to the stock model.

One of six special edition models that are to be unveiled throughout 2016 to celebrate BMW’s 100th anniversary, the M6 comes with the Competition Package installed and a total power output of 600 HP and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque, 40 HP and 20 Nm (15 lb-ft) more than what the standard model has to brag with. On top of the extra power you also get a couple of nice add-ons for your M6 Coupe.
The large coupe comes with M Carbon Ceramic brakes that not only shave some serious weight off the grand total of the M6 but also drastically improve the stopping power. The suspension and steering have also been reworked thanks to the Competition Package and the M Driver’s Package was installed for an increased top speed of up to 305 km/h (190 mph) while accelerating from standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) should take just 3.9 seconds.
With only 13 units to be made (a throwback at the car’s codename: F13), you’ll be able to set them apart from the rest of the M6 models on the streets thanks to their Austin Yellow exterior paint. A CFRP boot lid spoiler was added to the mix as well as a new diffuser on the rear bumper along with blacked out kidney grilles up front and 20″ light alloy wheels.
Inside the cabin, you’ll find Individual Merino Leather in black with yellow sews as well as carbon fiber trims and Alcantara here and there.
The ordering books will be open on July 9 and the price tag for such a rare M6 will start at 23,210,000 Japanese Yen which translates into roughly $210,000 at today’s exchange rates.
