The most powerful production BMWs ever launched come to the UK this year. The BMW M5 and M6 with Competition Package boast 575hp each between the four variants and record the fastest ever official zero to 62mph time.

The new BMW M5 Saloon receives the recent changes to the 5 Series range while also adding M specific enhancements such as the M Double-spoke kidney grille, currently seen on the M6 Coupé and Convertible, as well as the new M Steering Wheel with M DCT paddles that feature on these models. To the rear, the tail lights feature new Thin Blade technology.

Building on this enhanced design, power output is increased to 575hp providing the punch for the new Competition Package but also adds Sport suspension settings, Sport steering, Sport exhaust with Black Chrome exhaust tailpipes and exclusive 20-inch Double-spoke M light-alloy wheels. Additionally the Active M Differential is tuned to enhance agility during cornering while the M Dynamic Mode (MDM) is tuned to allow higher thresholds before the DSC intervenes. The Competition Package comes as a £6,700 option on top of the existing ‘standard’ M5 priced at £73,505 OTR. Other new options include 20-inch alloy wheels in black, an enhanced colour palette, upholstery and interior trim choice and Adaptive LED headlights.

The new BMW M6 Coupé, Convertible and Gran Coupé can all now come with the optional Competition Package too. The Competition Package costs £6,500 on an M6 Coupé and Convertible and £5,500 on the M6 Gran Coupé.
