The new BMW M5 Competition Edition, limited to just 200 units worldwide, celebrates the production life of the F10-generation M5. Both power and torque have been increased, making the Competition Edition one of the most potent road cars ever produced by BMW. The peak power output now stands at 600 hp, while the torque output reaches a maximum of 700 Nm, equating to a 0-100 kph time of just 3.9 seconds.
The Competition Edition comes with the M Competition Package as standard, which consists of stiffer responses from the springs and electronically controlled dampers, along with thicker anti-roll bars. The Active M electronically controlled multi-plate limited slip differential has been re-calibrated for an even more sporty response, while six-piston caliper brakes are mounted within 20-inch M light alloy wheels, finished in high gloss Jet Black.
The BMW M5 Competition Edition is identifiable on the outside by the assortment of M Performance Parts. These consist of a rear spoiler, rear diffuser and mirror caps all manufactured from carbon fibre, and a gloss black kidney grille. Just two colours are available – Mineral White and Carbon Black – with the ‘M5 Competition’ logo appearing on the side ‘gills’.
Inside, the BMW M5 Competition Edition benefits from full Black Merino leather upholstery with Opal White contrast stitching, ‘M5’ logos on the head restraints of the M Sport multi-function seats, and carbon finish inlays for the dashboard that feature the ‘M5 Competition’ logo along with the “1/200” designation.
Standard equipment on the BMW M5 Competition Edition includes Adaptive LED headlights, Reversing Assist camera, powered bootlid operation, Comfort Access and sun protection glass. Inside, occupants benefit from front and rear heated seats, an electric rear sunblind and a Bang & Olufsen Advanced audio system.
