The Competition Package is offered for all M5 and M6 versions.

It's a high-performance sports car, with a character and combining superior performance attributes with an incomparable driving experience. In the BMW M6, race track technology is brought to the road. Now, on the 2014 M6, BMW M GmbH will offer a new Competition Package. M6 Gran Coupe models can be optioned with the Competition package for $6,000. The Competition Package for the M6 Coupe and M6 Convertible is priced at $7,300.

The essential BMW M6 is are driven by a 4.4-liter V-8 engine with patented M TwinPower Turbo technology and a peak output of 560 hp in standard form. This power is managed through the standard 7-speed M Dual-Clutch Transmission (M-DCT) or optional 6-speed manual transmission (North America only), Active M Differential at the rear axle, and aluminum-intensive suspension, all of which are precisely tuned to perfect harmony by BMW M's 41 years of race-bred experience.

Competition Package: New for 2014

The Competition Package boosts output by 15 hp / 11 kW to 575 hp / 423 kW (preliminary) in the high-revving V-8 engine with M TwinPower turbo technology that powers the BMW M5, BMW M6 Coupe, BMW M6 Convertible and BMW M6 Gran Coupe models. At the same time, the developers at BMW M have extensively tuned the chassis set-up. Along with new coil springs and damper calibrations, anti-sway bars have also been stiffened. The potential inherent in the rear axle design - based on the race-derived principle of the rear axle subframe being rigidly bolted to the body - and the even more precisely calibrated bushings for the front axle are exploited with the Competition Package.

On all models except M6 Convertible, 0.1 seconds are shaved from the standstill to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint time and 0.2 seconds from the zero to 200 km/h (0-124 mph) sprint. Cornering dynamics and tractability are also enhanced - something noticeable in everyday driving but best experienced on the race track. In particular in conjunction with the optional M Carbon Ceramic Brake system available on the M6, all the driving dynamics attributes associated with BMW M automobiles are experienced at the highest level.

The Active M Differential on the final drive - standard on all M6 models - receives a unique tune when the Competition Package is specified, resulting in further-improved traction. The new rack-and-pinion steering with the M-specific Servotronic variable assist function, moreover, has more-direct programming to enable firm and secure contact with the road while further increasing the agility of the vehicle during cornering.

Beyond these enhancements, the M chassis control system has been adapted to the Competition Package suspension profile. With the Competition Package, the M Dynamic Mode (MDM) of DSC (Dynamic Stability Control) is re-mapped for even sportier handling characteristics and higher thresholds of intervention. The Competition Package additionally includes unique 20-inch M light-alloy wheels along with a sport exhaust system featuring M quad tailpipes finished in Black Chrome that lend an unmistakable look and the sound to the car.
