Special edition models come to life for some different reasons, one of which is to keep a specific model relevant until an updated version, or a next-generation model arrives in the near future. That appears to be the case with BMW after the German automaker announced a new special edition 6 Series called the M Sport Limited Edition. It’s not a coincidence that this new special edition is arriving as we wait patiently for the fourth-generation 6 Series to arrive later this year.
To be fair, there’s nothing wrong with the 6 Series M Sport Limited Edition. BMW is well within its bounds to offer it as a way of keeping the current 6 Series relevant. It’s actually a good strategy in a lot of ways, especially for customers who aren’t keen on waiting for the next-gen 6 Series to arrive. A special edition version of the current 6 Series is a pretty good alternative to have. The 6 Series M Sport Limited Edition is made even more appealing by the fact that it’s available in all body styles of the 6er, be it the Coupe, Convertible, or Gran Coupe variant.
Apart from that, potential customers can also look forward to the special edition 6 Series receiving a host of exclusive features (another good selling point!) to go with extra standard options and some M bits and pieces, giving the M Sport Limited Edition a more exclusive look and feel to it. The upgrades are mostly cosmetic in nature, but they do add up to create a unique 6 Series that could help keep the current-generation model relevant until the next-gen model arrives. Consider this special edition model a success if it does end up doing that.
