The 2015 BMW M6 range will come standard with the performance-enhancing Competition Pack when it arrives in Australia later this month.
The Competition Pack boosts power and torque from the M6’s 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 to 441kW and 700Nm – representing gains of 29kW and 20Nm over the pre-facelifted model. The 2015 M6 now matches the outputs of the special edition BMW M5 30 Jahre.
The 2015 BMW M6’s Competition Pack also includes modified suspension, damping and stabiliser set-ups; more direct M-tuned Servotronic speed-dependent power steering; optimised control settings for the Active M differential on the rear axle; M Dynamic driving mode; and exclusive 20-inch M light-alloy wheels.
Enhanced with the Competition Pack, the 2015 BMW M6 is marginally quicker than its predecessor, with Coupe and Gran Coupe variants racing from 0-100km/h in 3.9 seconds and the convertible hitting the same mark in 4.0sec.
Previously a $12,000 option, the package is now effectively included free of charge, with pricing of the updated M6 range just $925 higher than before. The M6 Coupe now starts from $292,600 before on-road costs, the M6 Gran Coupe from $299,600, and the M6 Convertible from $308,600.
The subtle price rise is further offset by the standard inclusion of the full suite of BMW ConnectedDrive features including Concierge Service and Real Time Traffic Information, a full-colour M-specific head-up display, DAB+ digital radio and a tyre pressure monitor.
Other interior tweaks include full leather Merino upholstery with contrast stitching, gloss black centre console, and a frameless central information display.
Customers now also have the choice of four no-cost option BMW Individual paint finishes: Citrin Black, Ruby Black, Moonstone, and Tanzanite Blue.
