BMW’s latest Grand Tourer variant can finally stand beside Porsche’s range topping Panamera Turbo S, the A7 (Audi’s grand touring luxury sedan) or even a Mercedes-Benz S Class coupe. BMW last week has announced the release of the M Sport Limited Edition. According to the company, the enhancement package will be offered on the 6 Series Gran Coupe, the 6 Series Convertible as well as the 6 Series Coupe.
Other than the existing M badge and aero kits, there are several new optional features that have been made available exclusively for BMW’s 6 Series. Among its exterior upgrades are the new carbon fiber side mirror casings, 20-inch M light alloy wheels with two-color paint scheme, and the latest Sonic Speed Blue Metallic paint.
The M Sport Limited Edition 6 Series interior meanwhile consists of fine-grain Merino leather for the seats courtesy of BMW Individual, the Bavarian automaker’s bespoke division. The seat upholstery will come in two-tone combination of fjord blue and black leather that is only exclusive to the M package.
Aside from the above, the M interior will also be adorned with specially designed blue piping, scuff plates, carbon fiber trims, floor mats, and blue lights. The carbon fiber trim along the interior will be seen particularly on the gear shift while the door sills come with the special M Sport Limited Edition lettering.
For its engine options, BMW will allow each customer to have their own take when it comes to the car’s performance. Customers can tune the engine according to their preference. So it’s all up to them whether they want a 313 horsepower turbodiesel, a 330 horsepower 6-cylinder performer or a 450 horsepower V8 engine with four wheel drive layout. Regardless, all new models will be paired to an 8-speed Steptronic sports transmission.
This April, BMW is expected to release the Limited Edition package in Europe. There are no words yet if the M Sport will ever hit the US shores after it goes on sale. From what we know, BMW is considering to sell the 6 Series Limited Edition exclusively to its European market. There are also no specific numbers regarding how many Limited Edition M Sport units will actually come into production.
Nevertheless, US customers can get the same M sport wheels and even apply the similar paint scheme to the new 2018 BMW 6 Series—only without the blue interior fitments and M exclusive door sills to match.
