As with years past, BMW is celebrating Chinese New Year with the launch of a special-edition model, built specially for China . We’re pretty sure that most of you remember the very successful M3 Tiger Edition announced back in 2010. Now, as China officially enters the year of the horse, BMW is releasing the special-edition M6 Gran Coupe Horse Edition.
Do not expect this special-edition M6 to offer numerous updates over a base M6 Gran Coupe. In fact, it is based on a model equipped with the Competition Package and it includes embroidered horse logos on the headrests.
The new BMW M6 Gran Coupe Horse Edition is limited to six units ,and each will carry phenomenal price of 2.77 million yuan — about $458,000 at the current exchange rates. To put that into perspective, the U.S.-spec BMW M6 Gran Coupe is priced at $115,000, so that is quite a hike.
BMW also announced that the same treatment will also be applied to 30 M5 sports sedans too. This version will be priced at 1.98 million yuan - or about $327,000.
