The best and the brightest of the automotive world are making their presence felt at the 66th Frankfurt Motor Show that brings a slew of models from today and the future under one exciting roof. While you may think that the i8 is the attention grabber at BMW’s pavilion, we can only say that it isn’t true as a few more exhibits are equally menacing if not technologically advanced. Showcasing its performance prowess, BMW has unveiled the M6 Competition Edition at the motor show that adds more power and a distinctive appearance over the “standard” M6.
The BMW M6 Competition Edition excuses itself from the other performers in the stable with the special paint job options including Alpine White and Austin Yellow metallic. The special edition M6 comes with attractive bodyworks stripes done up in the ///M division colours. You also get uprated tyres with the car riding on 20-inch M light-alloy wheels in double spoke 343 M styling finished in matte black, while the ORVMs and rear spoiler get covered in carbon fibre. The basic chrome treatment on the front grille, door sills and side gills have been retained.
Inside the cabin, the 2015 BMW M6 Competition Edition adds some really sporty bits including the ‘Competition’ lettering while the already spruced up cabin gets special multi-function seats for the front driver and passenger finished in Alcantara leather, carbon fibre inserts on the dashboard and centre console, and new gear selector. A head-up display unit has been added to the special edition ensemble. BMW is also offering customers the option of Harman Kardon Surround Sound System or the high-end Bang & Olufsen system with 16 speakers and output of 1200 watts as optional accessories.
Talking about the beast lurking under the hood, the new BMW M6 Competition Edition uses a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine now tuned to produce 600 PS of absolute mind boggling power and 700 Nm of torque. The motor allows the M6 coupe to hit a top speed of 305 kmph with the optional M Driver’s Package. For those who appreciate performance in a two-door and have the mullah to do so standing out of the crowd, the M6 Competition Edition is worth those hard earned pennies.
