That is what the dealership told me as we were going through the option list on the car. "Unlock" is the term they used, so I'm just repeating verbatim.

Over here it's called the M driver's package. You pay about $3k extra and after the first 1,500k they unlock the engine (300km/h) and you get a track day at the nurburgring. Definitely NOT free.
