Introducing the new BMW M5 “Competition Edition”. Limited to just 200 examples, this ultimate M5 ranks among the most powerful automobiles in the model history of the BMW brand.
The BMW M Division has developed an exclusive special edition of the world’s most successful high-performance business sedan. With power output increased to 441 kW/600 hp and a maximum torque of 700 Nm, the BMW M5 “Competition Edition” ranks among the most powerful automobiles in the model history of the BMW brand. Hosting an M dual clutch transmission featuring Drivelogic, the M5 “Competition Edition” sprints from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.9 seconds.
The familiar 4.4‑litre, high-revving V8 engine featuring path-breaking BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology is the powerful heart of the BMW M5 “Competition Edition”. An increase in boost pressure as well as targeted modifications to the engine management raise the car’s performance vs. the production model to 441 kW/600 hp. At the same time, maximum torque has increased by 20 Nm to 700 Nm.
The increase in power output harmonises perfectly with the Competition Package, which is supplied as standard on the BMW M5 “Competition Edition” and noticeably enhances the car’s handling characteristics even further. The Competition Package entails a lowering of the vehicle by 10 millimetres and a firmer setup of spring and damper systems and stabilizers.
Along with this modified setup, and the specific control setting, the steering system hosts an M specific Servotronic function which comes with a more direct control map, providing the driver with more precise response and further enhancing the car’s agility in bends. As a result, the BMW M5 “Competition Edition” guarantees typical M driving dynamics at the highest level both in everyday traffic and on the racetrack.
The BMW M5 “Competition Edition” signalises its extraordinary potential even when at a standstill. The exclusive body colours –100 vehicles in Carbon Black metallic and 100 in Mineral White metallic respectively – strongly emphasise the BMW M5’s sporty, elegant lines. The 20-inch, forged and polished, double-spoke M light alloy wheels in a Jet Black finish and with mixed tyres (265/35 ZR20 at the front, 295/30 ZR20 at the rear) underscore the car’s outstanding handling characteristics. M Performance parts in carbon such as the rear diffuser, the gurney on the boot lid and the mirror caps set further dynamic accents.
The sophisticated interior ambience is strongly characterised by the full leather trim Merino Black with contrast stitching in Opal White and floor mats in Anthracite with leather Merino Opal White bordering. Inside the BMW M5 “Competition Edition”, both driver and front passenger sit in M multifunctional seats, the comprehensive electric adjustment options of which guarantee a perfect balance between comfort and sporty lateral support. Here too, the white lettering “///M5” embroidered on the headrests emphasises the car’s exclusiveness.
