Hurrah! It’s the new BMW M5!

This is the brand new BMW M5. Technically, technically, that statement is correct. But before you go scurrying off into the world shouting it from the rooftops, brace yourself: it’s just a facelift. Well, a facelift and some extra power, courtesy of something called a ‘Competition Pack’.

This is the brand new BMW M5. Technically, technically, that statement is correct. But before you go scurrying off into the world shouting it from the rooftops, brace yourself: it’s just a facelift. Well, a facelift and some extra power, courtesy of something called a ‘Competition Pack’.

To coincide with the standard 5-Series facelift and mid-life refresh, BMW has treated The Best Super Saloon in The World to a series of tweaks to keep it on the boil. So, that Competition Pack.

It’ll be available on both the M5 and M6/M6 Convertible, featuring an uprated 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8; power jumps from 552bhp to 567bhp, resulting in fractional improvements in acceleration. 0-62mph now takes just 4.3 seconds instead of 4.4, and 0-124mph is completed 0.2 seconds quicker (12.8s instead of 13s).
