Arrow BMW M6 Coupe Competition Edition officially announced

BMW M6 Coupe Competition Edition officially announced

COMMENTS

Woodcliff Lake, NJ. September 15, 2015 – 3:00 AM EDT… Today, BMW M GmbH presented the exclusive BMW M6 Competition Edition at the 66th Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA). The 2016 Competition Edition stands for exceptional individuality, paintwork colors, BMW Individual components made of high-tech carbon fiber, fine leathers with coordinated contrast stitching and a range of unusual details. Limited to 100 units in the US, the Competition Edition is available exclusively for the BMW M6 Coupe with the further honed Competition Package and with a BMW M Performance Driving Center Experience Voucher.

The 2016 Competition Package has also been released for three model variants: 2016 BMW M6 Coupe, BMW M6 Grand Coupe and the BMW M6 Convertible.

Defined by outstanding performance, the three model variants are powered by a 4.4 liter V8 BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology producing 600 bHP with a power boost increasing peak torque from 500 lb-ft to 516 lb-ft delivered between an extremely wide rev band of 1,500 and 6,000 rpm. The increased power, dynamics and handling is owed to the same principles applied to BMW M vehicles: the chassis technology is tuned precisely to the performance characteristics of the powertrain. Firmer tuning of the springs, dampers and anti-roll bars increase stability, reduce roll and result in a higher level of steering precision.

The BMW M6 Coupe Competition Edition model comes with a choice of two exterior paintwork colors: dazzling Alpine White and luminous Austin Yellow metallic. In Alpine White, the BMW M6 Coupe Competition Edition features striking decorative bodywork stripes in the trademark BMW M colors, as will also be displayed on the new BMW M6 GT3 race car. Forming an attractive contrast, customers can choose between 20-inch light alloy Double Spoke M wheels with performance tires and 20-inch light alloy Double Spoke M wheels with forged black with performance tires. An M Performance Exhaust with carbon fiber tailpipes compliments the sportier design. Along with the BMW kidney grille, door handles and side gills in black chrome and the carbon-fiber exterior mirror caps, they accentuate the extraordinarily sporty and powerful presence of the car. The carbon-fiber M rear spoiler and rear diffuser optimize airflow for increased dynamics.

In the interior, BMW Individual fine-grain Merino full leather in black with contrast stitching – available in Opal White with Alpine White paintwork and in Yellow with Austin Yellow metallic paintwork – highlights the car’s exclusive sporty ambience. “M6 Competition” lettering in metal on the door sills and in the side gill elements, along with the lettering on the cupholder lids, is a further signature feature of the Edition model. The interior trim strips, gear selector and M sports steering wheel spokes are made from fine, lightweight carbon fiber, while the steering wheel rim is lined with elegant Alcantara leather.

M multifunction seats for the driver and front passenger, the BMW Head-Up Display and Harman Kardon Surround Sound System or High-End Surround Sound System by Bang & Olufsen with 16 speakers and output of 1,200 watts are also part of the equipment range.

To experience the special BMW M vehicle performance dynamics on the track, M6 Competition Edition customers will receive a Performance Center Voucher upon delivery. The coupon provides each owner with a special opportunity to visit the BMW Performance Center Driving School of their liking for an exclusive half-day instructor led driving experience.

Limited to 120 units worldwide and 100 in the U.S., the BMW M6 Competition Edition is available at selected retailers for $164,900 plus Destination and Handling. For more information please contact your local dealer.

$165k? That price is insane for just an M6, but if the luxury car market demand keeps up the way it is I'm sure they will be sold instantly. At some point BMW's pricing on their cars will have to hit a ceiling, there is a lot of good competition for sports cars when you get into that sort of money.

ROFL. 165?! This car would be near the bottom of the list in cars at that price range. It's a freakin' dolled up M6 with a comp pack, la see da. Fortunately for BMW, there are plenty of idiots with too much money who will buy this marketing exercise.

At that price point...a turbo S is attainable. Way poorly priced...but since a limited run, probably will be picks up by fan boys!

A lazy attempt by BMW on a limited run model. You can buy a standard M6 with comp package. All it needs is the tacky paint, over priced carbon fiber trim, and the cheesy stickers. What a waste of money.

Shame on you BMW - first no updates on 2016 M5 and now another lazy attempt.

You know what it is...an insult.

BMW should know their target demo and to offer this car at this price with nothing substantially more than a competition package should be offensive.

Yet, there will be those that buy this caricature of a race car in order to be different or because they have more disposable income and less sense than the average M6 buyer.

The market always finds its own level.

I'm sorry you don't like it..I don't care for the stickers either. But there's only 100 units.

They will sell just fine. They have the normal M6 to appeal to the demographics you speak of.

I agree that they will sell.

My point about the target demo is expecting a more mature (age) and sophisticated (mindset) buyer to pay this level of premium for a depreciating asset.

Opinions...everyone has one

Yep. Pretty easy to get massive discounts on TTS models. They can be had for $160's brand new.

You can never please all the people all the time, but you can please some people some the time and this car is for those 100 lucky people.

IMHO I personally love it, I think its amazing, but I'm not going to be one of the lucky 100, and therefore MY OPINION DOESN'T REALLY MATTER. It's moot really. And neither does the opinions of all those that have criticized it above and was never going to be in the market for it anyway.

This is business, and BMW is in the business of selling cars. And they are not the No1. luxury car manufacturer for nothing. These 100 will sell out before they are even made. And you all know it.
