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).

 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 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.
