Along with the new 2014 BMW M5 Competition Package , the M6 is also going to receive a Competition Package for 2014. The new package will be put on sale this July and was specially designed to enhance the M6’s handling properties and performance.
The Competition Package starts by adding an extra 15 horsepower under the hood, so the high-revving V-8 engine now delivers a total of 575 horsepower. Once the output was increased, BMW engineers made extensive modifications to the chassis setup. They have installed improved suspension and damping systems and retuned the stabilizer bars for added rigidity. As a result, the M6’s ride has been lowered by around 10 mm (0.39 inches) and body roll is greatly reduced.
The M6 Competition Package also adds an Active M Differential with its own control unit that ensures a more direct mapping to enable firm and secure contact with the road. The car is offered with exclusively designed 20-inch M light-alloy wheels and a sport exhaust system with the customary M twin tailpipes in black chrome.
Thanks to the new Competition Package, all the driving dynamics attributes of the M6 have been increased to their highest level.
