THE BMW M5
COMPETITIONBook Test Drive
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.
At its core, the M5 Competition is a statement of performance, and this can be seen and felt in every inch of the design. Instantly noticeable is the remodelled apron, which has a central air inlet in mesh design, two large side air inlets and a seamlessly integrated new Adaptive LED Shadowline headlights. The athletic proportions are accentuated by a lower centre of gravity and a wider stance, which is superb for handling. Inside, the driver-oriented cockpit comes in luxurious Full Merino leather, new Galvanic controls, and track-inspired M detailing, such as the M leather steering wheel with red pre-configurable M1 and M2 driver setting buttons.
