THE ARRIVAL OF THE NEW BMW M5 AND BMW M5 COMPETITION
The arrival of the new BMW M5 (fuel consumption combined: 10.6 – 10.5 l/100 km [26.6 – 26.9 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 242 – 239 g/km) and BMW M5 Competition (fuel consumption combined: 10.6 – 10.5 l/100 km [26.6 – 26.9 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 242 – 239 g/km) sees the highperformance sedans from BMW M GmbH returning to the stage in even sharper form. The 4.4 litre V8 engine with BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology generates 441 kW/600 hp in the BMW M5 and 460 kW/625 hp in the BMW M5 Competition. The eight speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic comes as standard, as does M xDrive all-wheel drive, which also includes a 2WD setting for pure rear-wheel drive. Featuring new shock absorbers from the BMW M8 Gran Coupé and a retuned chassis, the BMW M5 Competition offers an even better drive and handling at the limit, combined with superior comfort levels.
The BMW M5 Competition sits seven millimetres lower than the BMW M5 and includes other well-conceived tweaks to the suspension and springs. This setup makes allowance for the car’s extra power and truly comes into its own on the racetrack. The BMW M5 sprints from 0 – 100 km/h (62 mph) in only 3.4 seconds and passes 200 km/h (124 mph) with just 11.1 seconds on the clock. The BMW M5 Competition reaches both marks a fraction more quickly: 100 km/h (62 mph) is up in 3.3 seconds, 200 km/h (124 mph) in 10.8 seconds. The restyled front apron has bolder contouring and larger air intakes at the sides, while the large central air intake is hexagonal in shape and incorporates the oil cooler along with the radar sensor for the Active Cruise Control (ACC) system. New L shaped light tubes searing in narrow streaks towards the kidney grille add a dynamic flourish to the newly designed LED headlights. The new option of BMW Individual lights Shadowline adds a dark-tinted accent to the Adaptive LED Headlights and BMW Laserlight. The LED rear lights now have a three-dimensional feel to them and provide a fresh take on the familiar BMW L shape with their precise light graphic. The larger central display with a diagonal of 12.3 inches makes it easier than ever to keep a clear eye on the myriad functions of the driving dynamics systems and BMW M xDrive. The new two-button operating concept in the centre console originates from the BMW M8. The M Mode button lets the driver toggle swiftly between the ROAD and SPORT settings.
The Setup button takes them straight to the central display’s menu, where they can select an individual configuration for the powertrain and chassis options. The BMW M5 Competition also offers TRACK mode, for an undiluted M feeling on race circuits. The 20-inch M doublespoke wheels in polished Orbit Grey familiar from the BMW M8 are now available as an option.
