The BMW M5 has received further treatment from BMW’s M Division and the result is the more powerful BMW M5 Competition has finally been launched in India. The M TwinPower Turbo, V8 petrol engine delivers 625 hp at 6,000 rpm and a peak torque of 750 Nm between 1,800-5,860 rpm. This is an increase of 25 PS from the “normal” M5 while the torque remains the same but is delivered over a wider rev-range. Power is delivered via the eight-speed M Steptronic transmission to the M xDrive all-wheel-drive system. Performance has gone up from the standard car with 0-100 km/h dispatched in a claimed 3.3 seconds (3.4 seconds for the standard M5) and 0-200 km/h now dealt in 10.8 seconds (0.3 seconds quicker than the standard M5)

The M5 Competition follows the typical BMW tradition of continuous development. With the Competition Pack, the car’s suspension is lowered by seven millimetres, tuned to provide greater driving dynamics. The front axle has increased camber while the rear gets tow links with ball-joints instead of rubber mounts which should improve the stability and precision of the car. The anti-roll bars at the rear have been stiffened, which BMW claim makes the M5 Competition ride 10 per cent stiffer than the standard M5.

Visually the BMW M5 Competition underscores its flagship credentials with the unique M Sport exhaust fitted as standard. The M5 Competition also scores a series of black-accenting details such as the kidney-grille, and details on the rear bumper covering, colour-coordinated tailpipes. The rear spoiler and boot-lid carry the M5 logo which gains the Competition lettering. Another distinctive detail is the M5 Competition graphic which appears in the instrument cluster to greet the driver.

The BMW M5 Competition is priced at a premium of 11 lakhs over the “standard” M5. Read our road test review of the BMW M5 here
