The BMW M5 and M6 with Competition Package boast 575hp each between the four variants and record the fastest ever official zero to 100km/h 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 taillights feature new Thin Blade technology, which provides clear defined light, making it instantly recognisable as a BMW.

Building on this enhanced design, power output is increased to 575hp, providing the punch for the new Competition Package. It 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 cost option on top of the existing 'standard' M5 price.

Other new options include 20-inch alloy wheels in black, an enhanced colour palette, upholstery and interior trim choice and Adaptive LED headlights.
