Starting from £98,100

The BMW M5 Competition is a statement of supreme engineering skill and innovative driving intelligence. With an increased output of 625hp and a special chassis set-up, which also includes all relevant control systems, it has been designed to lead the pack. 
It's clear that the BMW M5 Competition is derived from the same genes that created the rest of the M family, yet it is also a pioneer amongst the pack. Key to its weight loss from its predecessor is the addition of the new carbon roof; the first to ever be installed on an M5.

Other distinctive M features include 20" M light alloy wheels style 706M, M twin tailpipes, striking M kidney grille with High-gloss Black double slats and M mirror caps with aerodynamic winglet.

Special Features

Four wheels are better than two

Through combining the agility and precision of the standard drive with the smoothness and traction of all-wheel drive, M xDrive with Active M Differential allows for even more intense performance in the new BMW M5.

M xDrive controls the torque distribution between the front and rear axle via a regulated clutch, engaging the front axle only when it senses that the back wheels have reached the absolute limit of their grip. In doing so, maximum driving dynamics are achieved on every road.


The technologies adopted in the new BMW M5 have been tailored to help achieve peak driving performance. For example, the M specific instrument cluster features five displays: speedometer, rev counter, fuel gauge, oil temperature and fuel consumption. Also featured is a status indicator for the M Driving dynamics systems: steering, suspension, engine, Drivelogic and M xDrive.

The M specific BMW Head-Up Display and improved Speed Limit Information, as well as the optional Driving Assistant Plus with Active Cruise Control with Stop&Go function, all exhibit the technological prowess of the new BMW M5.

Optimum refinement

The new BMW M5 has a number of features – inside and out – to make each journey as comfortable as possible. For example, the Comfort Access system allows you to simply approach your new BMW M5, open the door and press the Start button, thus eliminating the need to search your bag or pockets for your keys. Your unique key is recognised remotely by the Comfort Access sensors.

Inside, the new M Multifunctional seats with illuminated M5 logo reinforce the car's athleticism, with multiple adjustment options allowing maximum comfort, while lower seat bases and high side bolsters provide lateral support.
