Speaking of the exterior styling, BMW M5 Competition comes with an M Package with several sportier elements which include gloss-black accents on the kidney grille, ORVMs, side air vents, rear diffuser, and spoiler. In addition, M-specific twin exhaust pipes and M5 Competition badge also come as standard with this package.

Mechanically, BMW M5 Competition is powered by a V8 twin-turbo petrol engine that develops top power of 625bhp (25bhp higher than the standard M5) and peak torque of 750Nm. The engine is linked to an 8-speed automatic transmission while power is transmitted to all the four wheels via the M xDrive all-wheel-drive system.
The aforementioned system boasts of multiple modes: 4WD, 4WD Sport, and 2WD, i.e. it can make the sedan a rear-wheel-drive from an all-wheel-drive. It does a 0-100kmph sprint in just 3.3 seconds which 0.1 seconds quicker than the regular M5. BMW M5 Competition will directly rival the Mercedes-AMG E63 S 4MATIC+ in the Indian market.
