Just a few days after its Nurburgring testing session, the F10 BMW M5 with Competition Package makes an appearance in Augsburg, Germany.
When it launches this summer, a new optional package will be offered to customers. The Competition Package adds 11kW / 15hp extra to the standard setup. 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 580 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.
It remains unknown if the ceramic brakes will be offered as part of the package, or a separate option as seen with the new M6.
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. Full LED headlights are optional.
