The new BMW M5 Competition combines an ever-present sense of the race track and a suitably rarefied aura with the unruffled ease in everyday use for which BMW M models are renowned. A 25 hp / 19 kW hike in engine output over the standard version of the new BMW M5 (to 625 horsepower / 460 kW), even more direct responses and bespoke chassis tuning combine to maximise dynamics, agility and precision.
The 4.4-litre V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology has been modified specifically for this new application and develops peak torque of 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) across an even broader rev range – from 1,800 rpm to 5,800 rpm.
The thrust generated by the new BMW M5 Competition’s engine enables acceleration of 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.3 seconds and 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 10.8 seconds.
The M xDrive system’s rear-wheel bias provides the ideal basis for a full- blooded performance-driving experience. Added to which, the new BMW M5 Competition supplements M Dynamic Mode with three driving programs honed for use on the track: 4WD, 4WD Sport and 2WD, which switches to pure rear-wheel drive and deactivates the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC).
Standard specification for the new BMW M5 Competition includes a model- specific M Sport exhaust system with tailpipe embellishers in black chrome. This version of the twin-pipe, flap-controlled exhaust generates a strikingly prominent soundtrack. Meanwhile, the addition of a particulate filter to the Competition’s armoury enables a further reduction in emissions.
