With all the exciting thing going on, not just with BMW’s own range but also in the sports and luxury segment, the legendary M5 has become somewhat obscured. Now in an effort to bring the super saloon out of the shadows the car maker announced the launch of a special and limited BMW M5 Competition edition in Europe and UK.

Limited to 200 units, BMW M5 Competition costs £100,995 and comes with the Competition Package as standard, which means the output of the 4.4 liter bi-turbo engine is upped to 600 horsepower and 700 Nm of torque. The extra oomph won’t make the car faster in terms of top speed, as it’s still limited to 155 mph, but it is now capable of making 60 mph from 0 in 3.9 seconds.

Visually, BMW M5 Competition Edition is distinguished by carbon fibre BMW M Performance Parts, black kidney grille, 20-inch alloy wheels in Jet Black, and two exclusive paint jobs including Mineral White and Carbon Black. Inside the cabin the Competition theme continues with Full Black Merino leather upholstery with Opal White contrast stitching and “1/200” badges and engravings.

As for other contents of the coveted M Competition Package, you get stiffer springs and electronically controlled dampers, thicker anti-roll bars, Active M electronically controlled multi-plate limited slip differential, larger wheels, and re-calibrated electronic aids. All this means the car is slightly faster than regular versions, but a whole lot less comfortable.
