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. Still, this is not all, as the chassis was also improved, along with the suspension and damping systems and the stabiliser bars. For example, the Bmw M5 was lowered by 10 millimetres.

The traction was also improved with some help from the suspension, damping and stabiliser bars. Competition Package features new hydraulic rack-and-pinion steering with the M-specific Servotronic function. Beyond this, the chassis control systems has been adapted to the specific suspension profile.

Regarding the design, the Competition package brings exclusively designed 20-inch M light-alloy wheels and a new exhaust system with M twin tailpipes in black chrome. In terms of performance, the Competition Package improves the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) by 0.1 seconds and by 0.2 seconds when accelerating from 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph).
