Now in its fifth generation, the BMW M5 Sedan still embodies pure athleticism. Uncompromising performance places it convincingly at the top as it consistently masters every challenge. When the M TwinPower Turbo V8 petrol engine and the high-performance suspension show their true character, it soon becomes apparent that this sedan bears the motorsport genes.



The BMW M5 Sedan. An elegant athlete whose impressive prowess is apparent at first sight. Vehicle design that uses only the highest standards as a yardstick. The front view alone, with the redesigned M double kidney grille and the Adaptive LED Headlights, reveals the striking character of a powerful athlete in the exclusive body colour Frozen Blue metallic. The broad track width of the M high-performance chassis is expressed to particularly good effect in combination with the exclusive 20” light alloy wheels of the Competition Package. The horizontal contours of the muscular side sections and the distinctive crease line reveal the dynamics that this vehicle brings onto the road. The M rear spoiler, diffuser, new rear lights and the chrome twin tailpipes Black of the Competition Package set dynamic highlights to make the BMW M5 Sedan absolutely unmistakable even when viewed from behind.


Motorsport atmosphere with a feel-good factor: the inspiration conjured up by the BMW M5 Sedan from the outside continues seamlessly when the doors are opened. The interior is ideally geared towards perfectly controlling the tremendous performance of this sports car while, at the same time, enjoying every single kilometre. The ergonomically designed cockpit of the BMW M5 Sedan stands for perfect teamwork between driver and vehicle. The M specific controls can be operated intuitively in every driving situation, creating a single unit of driver, car and road – for a breathtaking, intensive driving experience on or off the racetrack. The redesigned M leather multifunction steering wheel with ergonomic thumb rests sits perfectly in the hands. High-quality M leather seats, available in an exclusive selection of upholstery colours ranging from Black, through Silverstone to Sakhir Orange, feature moulded side supports to hold the body ideally in position in any driving situation, without restricting the driver in any way. In the BMW M5 Sedan, every detail of the interior blends perfectly into the overall composition – for a sporty driving experience with no compromises for the driver.


Matching the distinctively athletic appearance of the BMW M5 Sedan and ideally suitable for transferring the tremendous power of this sports car safely onto the road: an exclusive selection of high-quality M light alloy wheels in 19” or 20” with mixed tyres is ready and waiting in the pits. As a standard feature, the BMW M5 Sedan stands on sporty 19” Double-spoke style 345 M light alloy wheels with mixed tyres – the perfect balance between an agile appearance and comfort. An exclusive athletic set of light alloy wheels is also available as special equipment: cast 20” Double-spoke style 343 M light alloy wheels in Bi-colour look or in Black with mixed tyres, consisting of 9 J x 20 with 265/35 R20 tyres and 10 J x 20 with 295/30 R20 tyres at the rear. The BMW M5 Sedan with Competition Package is fitted as standard with exclusive 20” Double-spoke style M 601 M light alloy wheels in a sporty Bi-colour look, which were specially developed for the Competition Package.



The M Carbon ceramic brake is a result of the transfer of technologies from the motor sport industry. The application of an innovative carbon fibre compound ceramic makes the braking power even more direct and improves brake-fade stabilisation. It is also non-corrosive, very resistant to abrasion, tolerates more heat and contributes to a lower vehicle weight. Its lightweight construction reduces rotating and unsprung mass, improving acceleration, responsiveness and overall handling, but also increasing the driving dynamics and traction, improving suspension comfort and reducing fuel consumption. With its unusually large brake discs (front 410 mm, rear 396 mm), six-piston fixed callipers at the front and one-piston floating callipers at the rear, the M Carbon ceramic brake is fit for the race track thanks to its very high heat resistance even over long periods of use. A perforated and ventilated brake disc ring guarantees significantly enhanced responsiveness in wet conditions and more powerful heat dissipation. The M Carbon ceramic brake is easy to recognise, thanks to its matt Gold-coloured brake callipers featuring the classic M logo. Due to the material-specific characteristics, situation- and use-dependent functional noises may occur, particularly on wet surfaces shortly before the vehicle comes to a standstill.


More traction and greater stability when cornering and even on snow, gravel or ice. 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 – completely independent of the differences in rotational speed between the right and left rear wheel. The results of this channelling of drive power are optimum traction, better handling as well as increased agility.


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 change just 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.



Powerfully independent. The BMW Individual paintwork offer for the new BMW M5 represents dynamism in its most captivating form. And the sporting elegance impresses right from the very first glance. The BMW Individual Pure Metal Silver paintwork, inspired by the BMW M5 Concept, is an exclusive finish with remarkable aesthetics. With their deep shine, the aluminium nanoparticles embedded in this paint present every detail of the distinctive bodywork to its best and most harmonious effect. It’s a unique look, giving the new BMW M5 an almost chrome-like finish and a striking appearance. The matt finish of the paintwork BMW Individual Frozen Blue metallic has a unique shimmer, making the contours of the BMW M5 even more striking. This effect underlines the sculptural character of the car.


The unique character of the BMW Individual M5 is also seen in the interior. The new BMW Individual fine-grain Merino leather in Nutmeg, for example, reaches the highest standards when it comes to both look and feel. With its earthy colour, it offers an appealing contrast with the deep silver exterior and lends the interior space a soothing depth. The breathable and velvet-soft surface of the BMW Individual Merino leather also ensures a particularly high level of comfort – an experience that can be traced back to its natural origins. Only the most carefully selected, pristine leather gently coloured by hand is used for exclusive Merino leather equipment. This is luxury in its most natural state. And to allow full expression of your own individuality, there is a broad spectrum of colours at your disposal – from Silk Grey to Amaro Brown.


The BMW Individual interior trim Piano Black completes the picture perfectly. The deep-black piano lacquer finish is itself a fine piece of craftsmanship. Several applications of lacquer along with masterful polishing are required to create its highly refined, unmistakable gloss. All in all, the powerful look is the result of the finest detail – just like the BMW M5.


Pure motorsport sensation: 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 V8 petrol engine is raised from 560 hp (412 kW) to 575 hp (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 Competition Package featuring exclusive 20” M Double-spoke style 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.
