Developed on the race track for everyday use. As an independent development of BMW M GmbH, the BMW M5 Sedan abides by the M Philosophy and perfectly combines high performance with suitability for everyday use.
Meeting high demands. The state-of-the-art M high-performance chassis underwent the toughest possible test for M Automobiles: the Nürburgring Nordschleife. The results are maximum driving dynamics and agility, as well as maximum precision and control – even at the limits of driving physics. This is made possible by specific stiffening, which optimises stability and increases the precision of steering responses. The front axle, for instance, is connected very rigidly to the body by an aluminium shear panel. Combined with the M TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine and the -speed M double-clutch transmission with Drivelogic, it creates an automobile that sets new standards for dynamic driving and precision.
The optional Competition package takes things a step further: its optimised steering and specially-designed chassis, lowered by 10 mm, complement each other to increase performance by 11 kW (15 hp), while the modified Sport exhaust system creates a particularly sporty engine sound and brings the racing experience to the streets.
