The design of the BMW M5 Competition conveys pure athleticism with every detail. The specific M design, along with few and clear lines, signals consistent dynamism. Numerous elements in BMW Individual High-Gloss Shadow Line exclusively emphasise the athletic character. The M kidney grille with grille frame, exterior mirror and characteristic M side air vent with M5 designation in Black high-gloss lends a striking, distinctive sporty look. The BMW M5 Competition features a roof made from extremely lightweight, high-strength carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP).

The rear apron and M rear spoiler in Black-high gloss provide an unmistakable identity. The M specific twin tailpipes with a chrome trim allow visible and audible testament to the vehicle’s athletic performance. ‘Competition’ lettering added to black ‘M5’ badge on the boot lid emphasize the exclusivity of the new BMW M5 Competition. The laminated M5 Competition designation at the side skirts is available as optional equipment.

The interior focuses squarely on the driver; absolute control in all driving situations is the motto here. The M Multifunction sport seats with illuminated M5 logo and M Seat belts reinforce the car’s athleticism with multiple adjustment options allowing maximum comfort. Black seatbelts with an understated stripe design in BMW M GmbH colors bring a distinctive essence to the interior.

The double-spoke design M leather steering wheel with multifunction buttons, the M emblem and chrome detailing feels great in hand. The driver can also use the M Drive M1 and M2 buttons to select the desired settings while driving. A new red start / stop button underlines the motorsport character of the car. The M specific pedals and foot rest in stainless steel emphasize sporty aspiration.

A host of BMW ConnectedDrive technologies continue to break the innovation barrier in automotive industry – BMW Gesture Control, BMW Display Key, Wireless Charging, BMW Head-Up Display and Wireless Apple CarPlay®. The modern cockpit concept BMW Live Cockpit Professional running on latest BMW Operating System 7.0 includes 3D Navigation with a high-resolution instrument cluster behind the steering wheel with a 12.3” screen and a control display measuring 10.25”.  An ‘M Competition’ graphic appears in the instrument cluster when it is starting up. Other features include a high-end Surround Sound system from Harman Kardon with 16 loudspeakers and 600 Watts of output.

The driver assistance systems feature Rear View Camera along with Park Distance Control (PDC) rear and front and Parking Assistant. The latter makes parking in tight spots easier by taking over acceleration, braking as well as steering.

The M TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine in the new BMW M5 Competition leaves nothing to be desired. The high-revving power unit delivers its exceptional output of 460 kW/625 hp at 6000 rpm and a tremendous peak torque of 750 Nm. The boost in performance pushes the new BMW M5 Competition from 0 to 100 km/hr in just 3.3 seconds for the ultimate adrenaline kick.

The 8-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic features extremely short shifting timings and numerous shifting options from very athletic and dynamic to comfortable and fuel-efficient. The gears can also be shifted manually with the gear lever or via gearshift paddles on the steering wheel.

The M Exhaust system comes with an innovative flap concept. The electrically controlled flaps, positioned just before the rear silencer, minimise exhaust backpressure for optimised efficiency and create a distinctively unmistakable BMW M sound across the entire rev range.

The innovative M xDrive drivetrain system combines hallmark M agility and precision provided by standard rear-wheel drive with traction-enhancing benefits of an all-wheel drive. The driver can choose from different configurations based on combinations of DSC modes (DSC on, MDM, DSC off) and M xDrive modes (4WD, 4WD Sport, 2WD). The configurations allow the drive system to be tailored to both the driver’s personal choice and the nature of the journey. Purists can opt for classical rear-wheel drive by deactivating the all-wheel-drive system.

For utmost safety, the new BMW M5 Competition comes with head and side airbags for driver and front passenger as well as head airbags for rear seats as standard. Additional standard equipment includes Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) including Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Automatic Stability Control (ASC), M Dynamic Mode (MDM), Cornering Brake Control (CBC), Dynamic Brake Control (DBC), Dry Braking function and Active M Differential. DSC with M xDrive further enhances the safety aspect.

The new BMW M5 Competition delivers maximum driving pleasure coupled with an outstanding performance and fuel consumption ratio thanks to BMW EfficientDynamics measures such as intelligent lightweight design, Brake Energy Regeneration, Auto Start-Stop function, electric power steering, differential and transfer case with optimised warm-up behaviour and aerodynamics (underside panelling, front spoiler, rear spoiler).
