BMW M5 Competition



The BMW M5 has always been the go-to car for super saloon lovers world over, offering understated looks, punishing performance and delicate handling that always belies the car’s size. When you see pictures of the new M5 and casually glance over the specs you could be forgiven for thinking that not much has changed over the previous model – but you couldn’t be more wrong. It may have only a tweaked version of the old 4.4 litre twin turbo V8 but it now in this Competition guise puts out 616 bhp meaning 0-62mph takes just 3.3 seconds. However, the main difference can be found in the stat below marked ‘Drivetrain’ – yes this new M5 finally gets an all-wheel-drive system to help tame the power and make it more usable all year around. But being a product of M-GmbH it isn’t any ordinary AWD system, this one can be AWD or full RWD at the press of one of the two red ‘M’ buttons on the steering wheel, so you can still have some tail-happy fun when you want to. This being the Competition you also get a whole heap of aggression thrown in as well, with stiffer suspension, more aggressive throttle mapping in the M modes, sharper steering and tweaked suspension geometry for a sharper turn-in. There are also a rather fetching new set of 20-inch alloys as well.
