600HP 2016 BMW M6 Competition Package Revealed

Performance-oriented option package also includes upgrades like 20-inch wheels, a stiffer suspension tune and more direct variable steering.

The BMW 6 Series lineup got a mild refresh for 2016, and now the performance-minded M division has announced details on an upgraded Competition Package for the 2016 BMW M6 that brings power output up to a heady 600 hp.

Available on all three M6 bodystyles—coupe, convertible, and four-door Gran Coupe—this new performance package offers 25 hp more than the equivalent package on 2014-2015 M6 models. The 4.4-liter, twin-turbo V-8 engine also makes 15 lb-ft more torque than the standard M6 in Competition Package cars, for a total of 516 lb-ft. BMW already showed off a similarly powerful version of this engine in the limited-run BMW M5 30th Anniversary Edition, which used higher turbo boost pressure and an enhanced engine computer to make the same exact horsepower and torque numbers as this new Competition Package M6. The standard 2016 BMW M6 without the package makes 560 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque.

Also included in the performance-oriented option package are upgrades like 20-inch wheels, a stiffer suspension tune, more direct variable steering, and a stability control system with slightly different tuning than the standard BMW M6. Like the last Competition Package, the new upgrade should be available with both the seven-speed dual-clutch and six-speed manual transmission options.

BMW has not yet released pricing for the new, more potent Competition Package that goes on sale in July, but we wouldn’t expect it to go much higher than the $7,300 that it cost last year.
