The 2014 BMW M5 Competition Package and the 2014 BMW M6 Competition Package debuts this Fall in the US.
The 575 horsepower Competition Package comes with a series of upgrades to the chassis and ride settings. The M engineers have revised the suspension and damping systems, the stabilizer bars have also been more tautly tuned. In the BMW M5 this adjustment has resulted in a lowering of the car by around 10 millimeters.
The M Dynamic mode of the DSC (Dynamic Stability Control) system is even more acutely geared to sporty handling characteristics. The package additionally includes exclusively designed 20-inch M light-alloy wheels style 601M with performance tires. The customers also have the option to choose the 343M 20-inch wheels.
The sport exhaust system comes with black chrome tailpipes, an element that differentiates the M5 Competition Package from the “standard” model.
Here is a video of the exhaust:
The contents of the Competition Package make for optimised performance characteristics in all models, as demonstrated for example by 0.1 seconds being shaved off the standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time and 0.2 seconds when accelerating from zero to 200 km/h (124 mph).
In the U.S., the Competition Package is a $7,300 add-on to the original price.
