BMW's 6 Series sports revisions

BMW is offering a sports pack for its 6 Series Coupe and Convertible range.

The package is available on all non-M derivatives, and includes a new-shape bonnet, 19-inch alloy wheels and improved suspension to enhance handling. BMW 650i Edition Sport Coupes and convertibles will also come with a sports exhaust.

The pack is called Edition Sport, and prices begin at 53,445 for the 630i Edition Sport Coupe, rising to 65,820 for a 650i Edition Sport Convertible.

M6 Coupe
In addition, BMW will offer the M6 Coupe with a competition package that has lowered suspension, retuned stability control and a modified differential to enhance cornering ability. A more aggressive bonnet design and lighter and wider alloys will also be fitted.

The competition package costs 2180 in addition to the 84,475 price of a BMW M6 Coupe.

BMW X6 xDrive50i
A new top-of-the-range X6 has also been announced, called the BMW X6 xDrive50i.

Powered by a 402bhp 4.4-litre V8 engine, the car travels from 0-62mph in 5.4 secs, with a 155mph top speed.

It emits an eye-watering 299g/km of CO2, although BMW is keen to highlight that this 75g/km clearner than the Range Rover Sport, and averages 22.6mpg.

It goes on sale in November for 53,930.
