In order to celebrate the last units produced of the current M5 model, BMW is launching a special edition to say goodbye. The BMW M5 Competition Edition celebrates the production life of the F10-generation M5, with just 200 M5 Competition Editions offered for sale worldwide. 

The BMW M5 Competition Edition uses an even more powerful version of the twin-turbo V8 found in the standard BMW M5. While retaining the M TwinPower Turbo technology, twin-scroll turbochargers, high-precision direct fuel injection, VALVETRONIC variable valve control and the cross-bank exhaust manifold of the standard car, the Competition Edition runs more boost courtesy of a recalibrated ECU. Maximum power is up from 560hp to 600hp, with the peak torque of the V8 rising from 680Nm to 700Nm. 

As a result, the M5 Competition Edition can accelerate from 0-62mph in just 3.9 seconds, compared to 4.4 seconds for the standard car. Top speed is electronically limited to 155mph. 

With BMW’s seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission Drivelogic and Efficient Dynamics technology, including engine Auto Start-Stop and Brake Energy Regeneration, the M5’s fuel consumption remains at 28.5mpg, while CO2 emissions are 231g/km.

The adoption of the M Competition Package as standard equipment consists of stiffer responses from the springs and electronically controlled dampers, along with thicker anti-roll bars. The Active M electronically controlled multi-plate limited slip differential is re-calibrated for an even more sporty response. 

Once again, there are three Drive Control settings to choose from: Comfort for normal road use, Sport when a more dynamic driving style is preferred and Sport Plus for the most extreme driving, such as on a race track. Six-piston caliper brakes are mounted within 20-inch M Double-spoke 601M light alloy wheels, finished in high gloss Jet Black.

The BMW M5 is further emphasised on the M5 Competition Edition thanks to the use of BMW M Performance Parts. These consist of a rear spoiler, rear diffuser and mirror caps all manufactured from carbon fibre, and a gloss black kidney grille. Just two colours are available – Mineral White and Carbon Black – with the ‘M5 Competition’ logo appearing on the famous side ‘gills’.
