2016 BMW M6 Competition Package coming this summer
Putting a finer edge on the 2016 BMW M6 Coupe, Convertible and Gran Coupe models, the latest version of the M6 Competition Package has been revealed. Due this summer, this newest iteration carries on the tradition of enhancing both the performance and aesthetics of the elite M6 cadre. In keeping with tradition, the heart of the new Competition Package is a more potent engine. This time, the upgrade takes the pony count of its M-spec 4.4-liter TwinPower Turbo V8 from 560 to 600 horses. The biturbo engine also makes 516 lb-ft of max torque which is delivered up in a broad plateau that extends from 1,500-6,000 rpm. BMW says the 2016 M6 Coupe with Competition Package can now sprint from 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds with the Convertible and Gran Coupe hitting that mark in about 3.9 ticks. Top speed remains electronically limited to 155 mph in all models and once again, the M Driver's Package that raises that figure to 189 mph won't be sold in America.
The already competent M6 chassis benefits from handing refinements that sharpen its response. Springs, shocks and anti-roll bars are all stiffened, while the M-tuned Servotronic power steering gets more direct mapping as does the M Dynamic Mode of the Dynamic Stability Control system. Opting for the Competition Package also nets a version of the Active M Differential that features a unique electronic control unit.
Cosmetic tweaks on the 2016 M6 Competition Package include exclusive bi-color 20-inch lightweight M-alloy wheels wrapped in staggered-width tires, and a black chrome finish on the dual-paired exhaust outlets. Pricing for the 2016 BMW M6 Competition Package upgrade is $8,300.
