New BMW M5 Competition Features
Another M car, another icon. The BMW M5 has enjoyed many generations, offering ultimate executive car luxury with legendary BMW M power.
The recipe is simple, but it is not easy to execute correctly. Take the already excellent BMW 5 Series executive luxury saloon, equip it with monstrous power and tune the chassis to match. When you are finished, you are left with a car that is unimaginably capable in a variety of road conditions, especially now the car comes as standard with xDrive all-wheel drive.
With the M5 Competition, BMW has upped the ante still further. More power, more handling ability and sportier exterior looks add up to what is known as the definitive executive sports saloon.
Design and Practicality
From the iconic double kidney grille at the front of the M5 Competition, to the rear with its menacing quad tailpipes; this is a car that makes a dynamic statement of power and presence.
A more aggressive front bumper design ties in with the rest of the BMW M family to ensure you know this is not your everyday 5 Series. Bicolour 20-inch alloy wheels allow the car to sit perfectly, whilst allowing you to see the colossal brake calipers and discs, giving clues to the car's supreme power.
Quad tailpipes and a motorsport-inspired rear splitter furthermore confirm the incredible power lurking under the bonnet, along with M5 Competition badges on the front, side and rear boot lid.
Technology and Safety
Like any BMW M car, M stands for Motorsport. In some cases this can mean comfort is compromised but this is not just any car, this is the M5 Competition; mixing supreme comfort and executive class with motorsport heritage is its game.
Therefore, the interior is supremely plush with seats offering plenty of support, whilst still taking on the typical motorsport-inspired bucket seat looks; the best of both worlds.
Your driving experience is made even more enjoyable thanks to complete connectivity using BMW ConnectedDrive in combination with Intelligent personal Assistant and the latest Connective Package Professional.
BMW's Head-up Display and a larger 12.3-inch touchscreen Central Information Display are key features present in the sublime, sporty interior.
Engines and Performance
A 616bhp M TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine is the chosen heart for the iconic evolution of the latest BMW M5.
The 4.4-litre engine propels the BMW M5 Competition from 0 to 62mph in just 3.3 seconds and thanks to an 8-speed M Steptronic transmission, shifts are supremely quick and effortless.
In a push towards constant evolution, the BMW M5 Competition offers all-wheel-drive ability, for increased performance in poor weather conditions and of course enhanced stability.
Staying true to BMW heritage and driver-focused rear-wheel-drive, the BMW M5 Competition allows you to switch from all-wheel-drive to rear-wheel-drive when the mood and conditions suit.
BMW M5 CS
Limited production of the exhilarating M5 CS makes it an even more appealing car.
The impressive overall aesthetic is further enhanced with Carbon Fibre features such as the entire bonnet, mirror caps, rear spoiler and rear diffuser. These elements dramatically reduce weight to augment the track-inspired handling and complement the performance of this immense car.
In a mere 3 seconds, the 4.4-litre TwinPower Turbo V8 launches BMW's latest benchmark from stationary to 62mph, with a tremendous 626bhp power output.
