The 2014 BMW M5 Facelift will come to market in the next few months and a new package will be offered by the M folks. The Competition Package will be available for the F10 M5 LCI and it will offer 11kW / 15hp extra. Another goodies in the super sporty package will include a specific suspension, new M steering wheel, tailored MDM application, exclusive new 20 inch wheels and new sport exhaust system with Black Chrome tailpipes. The maximum speed will also be raised to 305km / h.

With the upgraded power, the 4.4-liter (4395cc) turbocharged unit with BMW M TwinPower Turbo will now produce 575 horsepower and 680Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque from only 1500rpm. The high-rev unit should rocket the M5 to 62 mph even faster than the 4.4 seconds previously reported.

Also seen in the video below, yellow brake calipers indicate the use of a new package.

Design wise, the LCI F10 M5 will get a new set of kidney grilles double slatted and sporting the M5 badge on them, a trait started by the new M6. Optional squared corona lights will be offered as well.

We expect to see facelifted M5 to debut in September at Frankfurt Auto Show.

    it is a great car already but I will never understand why don’t they distance one M from another , the m6 and now the m5 almost look the same from the front , it’s ridiculous , the hp increase mean jack if you ask me , there are a lot of tuners who can pump up this engine way above 600 easily , these extra 15hp and a couple of kmh more means nothing really , they should focus on the car’s looks , distance the series from one another , 5 , 6 ,7 and 3 , M engines should be different in each car , the character and everything , that’s better for marketing , not copy and paste

      If you want an m5 that looks different from an m6 just get an e63 or an rs6 or the xf with 550 hp, maybe even a panamera turbo or a cts v. They are all exactly the same anyway (except the panamera and the ctsv obviously, but they still belong in the same class more or less).

        no I prefer the bmw lineup , its just that I dont like their design policy , to those who are less into the brand , they sometimes mix up the 3er 5er 7er from the back , the 5er and 7er are very similar , both in looks and size , I’d like bmw to distance their series , like e class , you just can’t mistake e class for an s class , however sometimes it’s hard to see difference between c and s class , old clk and cl are also similar on the sides…but somehow they manage to distance them all from one another better than bmw

    As an F10 M car owner, I don’t know what the extra HP is for. It’s essentially an impossible car to drive on the open road considering the state of our congested city to city highways. It’s also a bit heavy for the track. The E60 M was better for that. Sadly, the F10 M is a better car in Germany than it is here.
