As if a standard M6 wasn’t already a very desirable machine, the German marque has decided to spice up the coupe version by elaborating a special model entitled “Competition Edition” which they say represents a “more individual version” that as the name suggests comes as standard with the Competition Package.
While the attached images show the regular updated M6 with the Competition Package, BMW mentions the new iteration of the high-performance coupe will be offered with special exterior paint schemes, likely taken from the company’s Individual catalog. In addition, the vehicle is going to receive several body parts manufactured from carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) to keep the weight down low.
As far as the bespoke interior cabin, it’s going to host a new type of leather upholstery which will be exclusive to this model and will have coordinated contrast stitching. Moreover, BMW promises the interior cabin will feature “more distinctive touches”, but for the moment we don’t know exactly what that means.
Since it has the aforementioned Competition Package, this means the special M6 Coupe will use the uprated version of the V8 TwinPower Turbo 4.4-liter engine producing a massive 600 bhp and 700 Nm of torque. Those who will order the car with the optional Driver’s Package will be able to reach a top speed of 305 kmph, but obviously this will only be legally possible on a track or on those unrestricted sections of the German autobahn.
We will know more about the BMW M6 Competition Edition in the coming days as the limited-run model is scheduled to premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany which will open its doors in less than two weeks. There’s no word about pricing just yet, but obviously it will be more expensive than the standard M6 due to the added goodies.
