BMW and Bang & Olufsen have teamed on a special edition of the 6 Series Gran Coupe, including a 575 HP M6 version which will see the 4.4-liter V8 twin-turbo engine compete for aural appeal with 1,200W of speakers. Limited in number to just 110 cars, the 2015 BMW Individual 6 Series Gran Coupe “Bang & Olufsen Edition” will be filled with a total of sixteen speakers with matching B&O amps.
The speakers themselves will be distinguished with special brushed black aluminum grilles, while the B&O branding will also appear on the piano-black wood trim adorning the cup holder cover, as well as on the mats.
BMW will offer three versions of the special edition. Cheapest is the 650i B&O Edition, with the TwinPower Turbo V8 and rear-wheel drive; that’ll set you back $116,240. An all-wheel-drive version, the 650xi B&O Edition, will be $119,240.
Both have the M Sport package added, including LED lights, driver assistance tech, and upgraded infotainment. The interior gets full leather in either black or white/black with contrast stitching.
As for the M6 B&O Edition, only ten of the $152,423 cars will be made, all fitted as standard with BMW’s Competition Package. Like the other two cars, the M6 will be offered in a choice of white or dark graphite metallic only.
BMW is taking orders now, on a first-come, first-served basis, with deliveries expected to kick off over the summer. And, since you probably can’t drive the car in through your front door, there’ll be an exclusive set of matching B&O BeoPlay H6 headphones thrown in too.
