BMW Individual reveals 6-Series Gran Coupe Bang and Olufsen Edition w/ video

If going through BMW Individual’s unique tailoring program just isn’t enough for you, then the firm has something just for you.

Recently, they showcased a special 6-Series Gran Coupe Bang & Olufsen Edition, which standardizes the new $3,700 audio system that’s otherwise optional on the normal Gran Coupe. But what separates this special edition model from normally equipped B&O cars is that this version gets brushed black aluminum finish speaker grilles–a first for the lineup. Sounds special doesn’t it?

Well, if that’s not enough, unique packages and colors are also available–you can only choose from Brilliant White Metallic or Dark Graphite II Metallic, with a choice of interior between Opal White or Black. Other standard options include the Cold Weather Package, M Sport Edition Packages, the Competition Package, Executive Package, and piano black wood trimmings. Don’t forget lots and lots of Bang & Olufsen badges.

Only 100 examples will be replicated, starting at $116,240. Buyers can also get all of the above in the M6 Gran Coupe, and that tops out at $152,423.
