Bmw has just unveiled the Competition Package, developed for the Bmw M5, M6 Coupe, M6 Convertible and M6 Gran Coupe models. Available from July, the new Competition Package was developed to bring race track technology to the road. As a result, the Competition Package includes fine-tuning the suspension technology to the performance curve of the engine to bring maximum performance.
Moreover, the Competition Package boosts the total output of the 4.4-liter V8 engine with M TwinPower turbo technology by 11 kW to 423 kW/575 hp.
