2016 BMW M6 Coupe Competition Edition

The third-generation M6 is an interesting beast. Like prior M6s, they were effective mechanical twins of their M5 counterparts. However, the F-Series M6 introduced a new concept – the F06 M6 Gran Coupe – which seemed to follow the marketplace and was reasonably successful. Of course, like the prior E6x generation, there was also the F12 M6 convertible that proved to be popular as well. In total BMW sold the best part of 6,000 examples of them in North America – not a huge market share compared to the M3/4, but still a decent number for a high-end car.

The outsider – and slowest seller – was the M6 coupe. The F13 packed a wallop with a twin-turbocharged V8, and in LCI Competition form it kicked out 600 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. But these are some of the rarest models BMW has sold here – 1,619 pre-LCI coupes were sold in North America, and just 474 late examples were imported. Today we’re looking at one of the last brought here, but to add to the rarity it’s not just a Competition model, but it’s a Competition Edition coupe. These were produced to celebrate the end of F13 production as well as BMW’s racing success with the GT3 variant of the car. Production was limited to 100 models, which got special trim in one of two colors – Alpine White or Austin Yellow Metallic, the latter of which we see here. Just 40 were made in this color for the North American market, but despite that, they won’t destroy your bank account:

2016 BMW M6 Competiton 1 of 100

This 2016 BMW M6 is one of 100 Competition Edition models produced for the US market. The car is finished in Austin Yellow Metallic over black leather and is powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and an M-variable differential. Competition Edition equipment includes black-finished 20″ M Double Spoke wheels, carbon-ceramic brakes, a sport exhaust, and a carbon-fiber rear spoiler, rear diffuser, and mirror caps. Additional amenities include heated and ventilated front seats with active bolstering, a heated steering wheel, a head-up display, Park Distance Control, and a Bang & Olufsen sound system. It has only 23k miles and ready for its next owner.

Additional details on the Competition Edition included 20″ Style 343M wheels, M Performance carbon-fiber trim, M6 Competition badging, and a special interior with illuminated door sills, a 1/100 inscribed carbon-fiber dashboard panel, an M Performance shift knob, and black Merino leather everywhere with Atacama Yellow stitching. Special? Yeah, it’s a neat-looking package all in all, as long as you don’t mind the shouty color, and you’re really not likely to see another.

Was this a Porsche special, it’d be triple the asking price. But $70,000 seems fairly reasonable for a high-end sports coupe that is very limited in nature and still will knock your socks off with its performance. The asking price is in line with a standard new M4 coupe, and only about half what it would cost you to get into an M8.

    This thing is a real porker at ~4,200lbs, but I supposed in comparison to the new iX (shouldn’t it be eX?), which weighs in at a whopping 5,659lbs (!), I guess this isn’t so bad.

    definitely a lot of car for the money….as intimated, quite a bit heavier than one would like, but not a bad deal
