BMW Introduces the M5 Competition Edition. Only 200 Units Made
The BMW M5 Competition Edition celebrates the production life of the F10-generation M5, with just 200 M5 Competition Editions offered for sale worldwide. Both power and torque have been increased, making the Competition Edition one of the most potent cars ever produced by BMW.
The peak power output now stands at 600hp (up from the previous 560hp), while the torque output reaches a maximum of 700Nm (from 680Nm), equating to a 0-62mph 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 BMW M5 Competition Edition is readily identifiable by the fitment of carbon fibre BMW M Performance Parts – consisting of a rear spoiler, rear diffuser and mirror caps all manufactured from carbon fibre. There’s also a black kidney grille. The 20-inch alloy wheels are painted Jet Black, and just two exterior colours are available: Mineral White and Carbon Black.
Six-piston calliper brakes are mounted within 20-inch M Double-spoke 601M light alloy wheels, finished in high gloss Jet 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 BMW M5 Competition Edition is on sale now priced at £100,995 OTR.
