The limited edition BMW M5 Competition Edition has been released, and it’s even more spectacular than promised. With only 200 models being made worldwide, this is exclusivity at its finest, and top-notch luxury exudes from every detail.

Celebrating the F10-generation M5, which first went on sale at the end of 2011, the Competition Edition boasts even more power than the twin-turbo V8 found in the standard BMW M5. A recalibrated engine control unit allows more boost, so the Competition Edition is even sportier than ever. A peak power output of 600hp thanks to increased power and torque make the Competition Edition one of the most powerful cars ever to be produced by BMW. And it’s certainly hard to argue with a 0-62mph time of just 3.9 seconds – that’s 0.5 seconds faster than the standard BMW M5, which is available right now at Lancaster BMW Milton Keynes.

Everything about the Competition Edition is sports focused; the Competition Package is fitted as standard along with BMW’s seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission Drivelogic and EfficientDynamics technology. Its incredible performance extends even to fuel economy, producing a very impressive 28.5mpg. The BMW M5 Competition Edition offers nothing but the best in its extensive range of equipment, from Adaptive LED headlights and Reversing Assist camera to Comfort Access and a Bang & Olufsen Advanced audio system.

Everything about the exterior demands attention, with carbon fibre BMW M Performance Parts and high-gloss Jet Black 20-inch M Double-spoke 601M light alloy wheels for a powerfully commanding and sporty presence. Only two exterior colours are available to complete the look with classic elegance: Mineral White and Carbon Black. Exclusivity continues inside with full Black Merino leather upholstery and Opal White contrast stitching, the ‘M5’ logo stitched on the headrests, an ‘M5 Competition’ logo and a ‘1/200’ engraving on the M Performance interior trim.

On sale now at £100,995 OTR, the BMW M5 Competition Edition is certainly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
