2019 BMW M5 Competition Highlights
The performance-driving experience that defines the character of the new BMW M5 Competition has a deep emotional richness – and is rooted in the distinctive way its engine goes about its business. The 4.4-litre V8 unit with M TwinPower Turbo technology now produces maximum output of 460 kW/625 hp at 6,000 rpm. Peak torque is 750 Newton metres (553 lb-ft) and can be enjoyed across an extremely wide rev range – from 1,800 to 5,800 rpm (i.e. a 200-rpm wider band than in the standard version of the new BMW M5).
The high-revving instincts of the eight-cylinder engine are therefore harnessed to give the new BMW M5 Competition imposing levels of thrust. The car’s unique power delivery makes its presence felt in reducing the Competition’s 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) time to 3.3 seconds. Furthermore, 0 – 200 km/h (124 mph) is over in 10.8 seconds – 0.3 seconds quicker than in the standard version of the new M5.
sharp eyes will pick up the exclusive visual changes on the M5 Competition, beginning with the black "M5 Competition" badge on the trunk. Elsewhere, high-gloss black trim abounds, replacing body-color bits on the mirror caps, rear apron insert, and Gurney lip on the trunklid, while the chrome found on the tailpipes, side gills, and front grille also give way to the same high-gloss black. Exterior door handles lose their brightwork in exchange for a full body color treatment. The overall effect imbues the M5 Competition with a subtle yet sinister shadow, though the blacked-out kidneys look more like two amoebae on the verge of symbiosis than an iconic design element.
