The BMW 6-Series gets the M Sport treatment

It's positively slick

Any Bimmer with the letter M in the fine print is bound to get our attention. This time, it’s the 6-Series that gets the M Sport treatment. BMW recently revealed this limited-edition car, and it looks elegant yet sporty at the same time. Just the way we like them. 

The M Sport package is available for three 6-Series body types: the Coupe, the Convertible, and the Gran Coupe. The paint job is an exquisite Sonic Speed Blue metallic. Underneath are 20-inch double-spoke, bi-color alloy wheels that are somehow subtle yet attention-grabbing. Carbon fiber caps on the side mirrors complete the exterior stylings.

Inside, the front seats are adorned in BMW Individual fine-grain Merino full-leather trim in black and blue, complementing the exterior. Likewise, the floormats also feature a contrasting blue design. Bits of the interior trim and the gearstick are finished in carbon fiber, while the door sills have a cover strip inscribed with the words ‘M Sport Limited Edition.”

Regardless of body type, the 6-Series M Sport comes with a choice of three engines: a six-cylinder that puts out 320hp, a V8 with 450hp, or a six-cylinder diesel mill with 313hp. All engine options are mated to an eight-speed Steptronic sports transmission. The power, meanwhile, can be delivered either from the rear wheels or through all of them via BMW’s xDrive.

A limited number of units will go on sale starting April. Since most of us won’t be able to afford or even have access to one, it looks like we’ll have to be content with just ogling.
