2014 BMW M5 and M6 to Get Competition Package

2014 BMW M5 and M6 to Get Competition Package

BMW is readying the 2014 M5 and M6 for launch this summer, both of which will feature a new performance package that will boost the hp and 0 to 60 mph times of the two cars.

Rumored to be called the ‘Competition Package,’ it will provide both cars a boost from 560 to 575 hp, delivered by the same twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8. Other enhancements will include unique black wheels, revised suspension, black exhaust tips, and a tighter steering ratio that will come together to shave 0.1 seconds from the 0-60 mph time, which lands around 3.6 seconds.

This package will be available on the entire 6 series range, including the M6 Convertible and M6 Gran Coupe. Pricing is still unknown, but expect a significant increase over the current M5 and M6′s base prices, which start at $92,395 and $110,545, respectively.
