BMW M5 COMPETITION AND BMW M5.
Overview of drive train and chassis technologies inspired by motorsport.
How do you translate the tremendous power of the all-new BMW M5 directly and precisely into maximum driving dynamics? With innovative technologies, inspired by motor racing.
High Performance M TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine.
With 460 kW (625 hp) and 750 Nm of torque, the M TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine accelerates the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds. Thanks to two TwinScroll turbochargers, High-Precision Injection and Valvetronic fully variable valve control, the 4.4-litre engine delivers energetic thrust even from low rpms, direct responsiveness and tremendous power.
BMW M5 suspension.
The fundamentally revised BMW M5 suspension fully highlights the vehicle’s enormous dynamic potential. The vehicle features a wider front track, adjusted springs and harder stabilisers as well as a unique calibration of the Variable Damper Control, all of which work together to provide a distinctly athletic driving style.
BMW M xDrive with Active M differential guarantees maximum traction and driving dynamics for everyday driving and at the racetrack. The M specific technology combines the typical agility of a rear-wheel drive with the control of an all-wheel drive.
8-speed M Steptronic transmission.
The 8-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic features extremely short shifting times and numerous shifting options: from very athletic and dynamic to comfortable and fuel-efficient. The gears can also be shifted manually with the gear lever, or via gearshift paddles on the steering wheel.
M Carbon ceramic brake.
With the optional M Carbon ceramic brake, the use of braking power is even more direct, it is corrosion-free, even more heat-resistant, greatly reduced in wear and contributes to weight savings, which has a positive effect on agility, dynamics and acceleration. The special technical equipment is visible through calipers in the colour gold matt with M lettering on the outside. Due to specific material properties, increased operating noise may occur during braking, e.g. in case of prolonged, low load or in wet conditions shortly before vehicle standstill. The design-related noise can be avoided by braking the brake dry in case of wetness or loading the brake more heavily after a long, low braking load. The influence of wetness and road salt cause brake effectiveness to correspond to that of a conventional brake system. This reduced braking power can be compensated for with a greater pressure on the pedal. The functional noises have no influence on the performance, operational safety and stability of the brake.
M sports exhaust system.
The M sports exhaust system delivers a dynamic sound that can be modified via the integrated exhaust valve mechanism. The SPORT and SPORT+ programmes, which can be selected via the Driving dynamics buttons, are accentuated by an even more intense engine sound, while the comfort-oriented programme prioritises more discreet engine acoustics.
