To grab some of the press attention that Mercedes-Benz has been receiving for the revealing of their S-Class flagship, BMW recently announced some special edition 6-Series models for both the US and Canada.
The first is the BMW 6-Series M-Sport Edition, which is a package offered on all 2014 non-M BMW 6-Series models, including the coupe, convertible and Gran Coupe. The package offers bespoke 19-inch M-Sport double-spoke alloys, an M aerodynamic and visual package, LED fog lights, black brake cailpers, BMW Individual’s High-Gloss Shadow Line, dark-chrome exhaust tips, and adaptive LED headlights.
The trickery continues on the inside with an M steering wheel and door sills, and M Sport seats covered in Alcantara and Nappa leather. A heads-up display is standard, as well as a Nappa-covered dashboard, a unique 12-speaker sound system for the convertible, while the coupe and Gran Coupe get 16 speakers.
Alternatively, BMW of North America introduced a limited edition M6 GranCoupe, specifically just for Canada. It’s called the Launch Edition and was designed by BMW Candaa and BMW Individual. That said, the 2014 BMW M6 GranCoupe Launch Edition comes with a series of unique touches, such as a Pure Metal Silver pain, two-tone leather interior trimming and upholstery, Piano Black trim, and a Bang & Olufsen premium sound system.
