Fresh information about BMW's upcoming M5 Competition has come to the fore.
While it seems the M5 has been trounced by the Mercedes-AMG E63 S in a number of performance tests, BMW M is readying the more powerful M to regain its crown as the king of sports sedans. What the Competition does gain, is more power.
And extra 19kw to be exact - pushing maximum power to an E63 S beating 460kw! Torque is expected to remain at 750nm. It will also feature a sportier suspension setup, sitting 7mm lower at the front and 10mm lower at the rear.
A sport exhaust system is apparently also on offer to further add to the aural entertainment of the M5, while carbon ceramic brakes will be a standalone option. A carbon fibre engine cover will be standard as are black grill badges and side vents.
While BMW has yet to confirm any of this, the hot M5 has been spotted testing at the Nürburgring so its's safe to assume a reveal is imminent.
