After the facelift, the BMW M5 will be available both in the classic M5 version and as a sharper Competition. Before the facelift, Competition in the offer replaced the classic version.
However, the difference in performance is the same as before. The 4.4-liter eight-cylinder supercharged by two turbochargers has an output of 441 kW (600 hp) in the case of the M5 and 460 kW (625 hp) in the case of the M5 Competition.
The standard M5 is 100 in 3.4 seconds and the 200 in 11.1 seconds, the M5 Competition can do the same in 3.3 and 10.8 seconds, respectively.
Again, an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive operating in three modes are standard. From a full ATV to a strong preference for the rear axle to deactivating the front-wheel drive.
The Competition version now has a stiffer engine mounting, which improves responses. Changes in the facelift took place on the chassis. It has been completely retuned and, for example, the adaptive shock absorbers come from the M8 model.
The M5 is also inspired by the same car in the case of the logic of driving modes triggered by the M buttons on the steering wheel. In addition to the classic driving modes, you can switch between predefined Road for use on the roads and Track for the racing circuit.
The visual changes, of course, follow in the footsteps of the facelift of the starting series 5. The headlights are more cloudy, the radiator grille is larger and the taillights have new graphics. A new infotainment moved into the interior.
