With 560 horsepower on tap, the BMW M6 is already plenty powerful and
capable. Those looking for an extra boost, however, may be interested
in the new Competition Package.
More potent Competition Package for BMW M6 Coupe, BMW M6 Gran Coupe
and BMW M6 Convertible.
Munich. In July 2015 BMW M GmbH will replace the existing Competition
Package for the BMW M6 Coupe, BMW M6 Gran Coupe and BMW M6 Convertible
with an upgraded version. The new Competition Package has been
developed with a keen eye on enhancing driving dynamics. It includes a
power boost for the 4.4-litre 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 [28.5/28.5/27.4 mpg imp];
CO2 emissions combined: 231/231/239 g/km)* of 29 kW/40 hp over the
standard unit, to 441 kW/600 hp. 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.
New personal best for the BMW M6 Coupe: 0 200 km/h (124 mph) in 11.8
The three model variants impress with outstanding performance when
fitted with the new optional Competition Package. For example, the
sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is all over 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. Here the same principle applies
as in the development of all BMW M cars: the chassis technology is
tuned precisely to the performance characteristics of the powertrain.
The result is maximum performance combined with assured and precisely
controllable responses at all times even when pushing the dynamic
envelope. To this end, 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
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 tyres, plus black chrome twin tailpipes for the sports
The BMW M6 Coupe, BMW M6 Gran Coupe and BMW M6 Convertible with
Competition Package will be available from July 2015.
