The New BMW M5 Competition




Now in its sixth generation, the new BMW M5 Competition has taken an iconic design language and accentuated it with eye-catching elements. From the front, these include the new redesigned M kidney grille with a single-piece frame finished in high-gloss black. From the rear, darker three-dimensional rear lights, and a powerful rear apron with larger air diffuser and with two twin tailpipes typical of M vehicles.

The athletic proportions are accentuated by a lower centre of gravity and a wider stance, which is superb for handling.
