The new BMW M5 Competition is a sedan of extreme performance and provides exceptional driving characteristics, but also the ease of everyday use.
The character of the new BMW M5 Competition is defined by the 4.4-liter M TwinPower Turbo V8 engine that now delivers 625 hp (460 kW) and surpasses the standard version of the new 34 kW (34 hp) MW with an engine torque of 750 Nm.
Even more direct response and flawless chassis provide driving experience as a race track at all times. The rear suspension relates to the body as on racing cars (no powerful blocks), and the suspension is 7 mm lower. For all this, this model is able to accelerate up to 100 km / h in 3,3 seconds, and in 10,8 seconds to 200 km / h – 0,3 seconds faster than the standard version M5.
It has an eight-speed Steptronic gearbox that provides three driving modes – efficient, sporty and ultra-dynamic, as well as the M xDrive four-wheel drive – introduced for the first time in the production of the M model. For true M fans, the drive on all 4 wheels can be switched off with one touch of the button, or switched to the drive on the rear wheels.
The launch of this model brings a completely new product category, since in the future, BMW M GmbH will represent the strongest variants of cars as stand-alone models.
