2014 BMW 6 Series Gets Upgraded Tech, M6 Manual

The BMW 6 Series has been updated for 2014, and the German brand has given it a new limited-run special edition, added xDrive all-wheel drive availability, and put a manual transmission option into the sport-tuned M6.

A new 2014 BMW 6 Series Convertible Frozen Brilliant White Edition will be available this year, though only 100 units will be produced. The car can only be had as a 650i, and can be picked out in a crowd by its matte white paint, black mirror caps, blacked out grilles, and 20-inch Ferric Gray / gloss-turned wheels. On the inside, Black Nappa leather upholstery and Gray Poplar wood trim are fitted.

The 6 Series Frozen Brilliant White Edition will be the first BMW in the US to feature the brand’s Dynamic Digital Instrument Cluster, which changes its presentation depending on which driving mode is selected.
