With the optional Competition Package, you transfer the performance of the BMW M5 Sedan with even greater precision to every circuit − thanks to enhanced engine output, more direct steering and a specially-designed chassis.

The Competition Package shifts the BMW M5 Sedan one gear higher. The already breathtaking power of the M TwinPower Turbo eight-cylinder petrol engine is raised from 412 kW to 423 kW for that ultimate adrenaline kick. Raising the boost pressure in the upper range of revs is responsible for this added performance. A modified exhaust unit provides an especially sporty engine sound − with goosebumps guaranteed. On the racing circuit and in everyday use, the specially-designed suspension, which has been lowered by 10 millimetres, and the extremely sporty direct steering ensure that every command is executed with maximum precision. From the outside, the BMW M5 Sedan inspires with the optional Competition Package featuring exclusive 20" M Double-spoke 601 M light alloy wheels in Bi-colour look and mixed tyres together with the twin tailpipes of the Sport exhaust unit in black chrome finish. A combination that raises the pulse when viewed from any angle.

Now there is even more traction and greater stability when cornering. The Active M differential supplies optimum traction and supports the dynamic qualities of the rear-wheel drive, both when accelerating out of corners and manoeuvring on slippery surfaces.

The Active M differential even affords precise handling in cases of extreme lateral acceleration or uneven road surfaces. Here the active system is connected to the DSC by an electronic control element and proactively imposes an intelligent locking action, which is completely independent of the differences in rotational speed between the right and left rear wheel. The results of this channeling of drive power are optimum traction, better handling as well as increased agility.


From 0 to 100 km/h is important, but going from 100 km/h to 0 is even more important. The M carbon ceramic brakes, which were specially developed by BMW M GmbH, provide a powerful back-up for dynamic driving fun.


Thanks to the clearly defined pressure point, braking power can always be applied precisely. The M carbon ceramic brakes guarantee maximum braking performance under all thermal conditions.


Thanks to their reduced weight,the M carbon ceramic brakes in the BMW M5 Sedan actively contribute to improved driving dynamics in another respect. hey significantly reduce the rotating and unsprung masses in the vehicle. The noticeable result is top braking figures in any weather conditions and on any surface. Which means top performance in terms of handling and agility.


Dependent on conditions and usage, features specific to the materials used can lead to operational noises particularly in wet conditions just before the vehicle comes to a halt. The impact of moisture and road salt can cause the braking action to be equivalent to a conventional brake system. This can for a short time be experienced as a reduction in braking action and can be balanced out by greater pressure on the pedal where necessary.


All bends are enticing, especially with assistance from M Servotronic. The intelligent system dynamically adapts steering power and resistance in line with your driving speed.

The BMW M5 Sedan obeys the driver's commands precisely at any speed. The power assist reacts with more resistance at high speeds. It automatically decreases at low speeds, on bends and when parking, providing smoother vehicle behavior. At increasing speeds, the power assist is continually controlled and reduced, resulting in more direct contact with the road.

In the Competition Package, the M Servotronic is specially adapted to the higher power and the sportier chassis. The modified steering transmission, responds even more directly to the driver's commands. The end result is a greater sensation of motor racing and the best possible performance.


Meeting high demands for driving dynamics, agility and precision − the M high-performance suspension, with its sophisticated design, exploits the tremendous potential of this vehicle to the fullest.

Outstanding acceleration also comes from the Active M differential on the rear axle. The three settings on the Dynamic Damping Control − Normal, Sport and Sport Plus − allow you to adjust the suspension to suit your requirements. The M Drive buttons on the steering wheel are pre-programmed with vehicle configurations that support either a sporty or relaxed driving style. One of these is the M Dynamic Mode, which allows a particularly authentic driving experience using the maximum lateral and longitudinal dynamics possible. This affects the normal function of the Dynamic Stability Control so it only has a stabilizing effect in emergency situations.

With the Competition Package, the suspension of the BMW M5 Sedan is particularly uncompromising. The spring rate is increased and the damping powers and stabilisation are adjusted accordingly. The Dynamic Damping Control settings are adapted to suit the increase in dynamics and the characteristics of the M Dynamic Mode (MDM) are even sharper. The result is unrivaled motorsport performance.


The 7-speed M double-clutch transmission in the BMW M5 creates the best conditions for a quick reaction. With the 7-speed M DCT with Drivelogic, you don’t just change gears quickly, you change immediately.
The 7-speed M double-clutch transmission with Drivelogic transfers engine power to the road in milliseconds, without the slightest disruption to tractive force. Two transmission structures with a separate clutch continually transfer the power generated by the engine to the rear wheels. Gears can be changed without the transmission of power being interrupted using either the paddles, shift lever or automatic mode for even more dynamic comfort.
