Facelifted late last year, the BMW M6 receives a more, ahem, competitive Competition Package for 2015, adding a dollop of oomph to the already awe-inspiring performance of the outgoing version (not like the regular model was ever lacking in this department in the first place).
BMW has deemed the current Competition Package for the BMW M6 too tame, and will be introducing a replacement for the Coupe, Gran Coupe, and Convertible, this July.
Aimed at enhancing driving dynamics, the package will see the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 boosted by 40 horses to 600 hp, and torque upped from 501 to 516 lb-ft. The result is a new 0-62 mph time of 3.9 seconds (4.0 secs in the Convertible), and a 0-124 mph time of 11.8 seconds, 0.6 secs quicker than with the previous Competition Package.
Top speed is capped at 155 mph, but with the optional M Driver’s Package is stoked to 189 mph. To improve handling, BMW has given the springs, dampers and anti-roll bars firmer tuning, the steering has been revised with more direct mapping, while traction has been improved thanks to modifications made to the Active M Differential. Exterior changes are limited to a new set of 20-inch two-tone, double-spoke M light alloys, and black chrome twin tailpipes.
