BMW has upgraded the Competition Package for the M6 range. For those who are still not satisfied with the firepower of the standard M6, the Competition Package can be optioned for even more performance.
Available from July for the M6 Coupe, M6 Gran Coupe and M6 Convertible, the new Competition Package lifts power output for the 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine a further 29kW and 20Nm over the standard unit, bringing total output to 441kW and 700Nm, the latter available from just 1,500rpm and hangs on until 6,000rpm.
The new figures means 100km/h arrives from rest in just 3.9 seconds for the M6 Coupe and M6 Grand Coupe, and 4.0 seconds for the M6 Convertible. What’s more, the M6 Coupe requires just 11.8 seconds to power from 0 – 200 km/h, making it 0.6 seconds faster to the mark than with the previous version of the Competition Package.
The top speed of all Competition models is electronically limited to 250 km/h, but can be stoked to 305 km/h by specifying the optional M Driver’s Package.
The upgrade also extends to firmer tuning for the springs, dampers and anti-roll bars. 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. 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 handling.
Externally, the BMW M6 Competition models come exclusively with 20-inch M light-alloy wheels and black chrome twin tailpipes for the sports exhaust system.
