BMW has came out with the new M5 Competition Limited Edition to celebrate the latest generation of the F10-generation M5. Limited to just 200 units in the world, the BMW M5 Competition has been up-rated in terms of power and torque to represent the most potent cars ever produced by the Munich-based marque.
In looks, the BMW M5 Competition is readily identifiable by the fitment of carbon fiber BMW M Performance Parts and a black kidney grille. The 20-inch alloy wheels are painted Jet Black, and just two exterior colors are available: Mineral White and Carbon Black.
Inside, occupants benefit from Full Black Merino leather upholstery with Opal White contrast stitching, along with further selected details including the unique “1/200” engraving to the interior trim.
The peak power output of the latest M5 now stands at 600hp, while the torque output reaches a maximum of 700Nm, equating to a 0-100 km/h time of just 3.9 seconds. The standard fitment of the Competition Package, with its even more sportingly focused chassis, ensures the additional power is put to effective use. The increased power and torque are attributed to an even more powerful version of the twin-turbo V8 powerplant. Power goes up by 40 hp on the M5 Competition, while torque is raised 20 Nm, compared to the standard M5. With BMW’s seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission Drivelogic and Efficient Dynamics technology, including engine Auto Start-Stop and Brake Energy Regeneration, the M5’s fuel consumption remains at an impressive 9.9l/100 km (28.5mpg), given its extreme performance, while CO2 emissions are 231g/km.
The BMW M5 Competition Edition comes with an extensive range of equipment including 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 sun blind and can experience supreme listening through the Bang & Olufsen Advanced audio system.
The BMW M5 Competition Edition has rolled out in the U.K. with a starting price of 100,995 pounds.
