For starters, the M5 Competition facelift retains its 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine, which produces 625PS and 750Nm, and is paired to an 8-speed M steptronic automatic transmission. It can achieve 100kmph from standstill in just 3.3 seconds, with the top speed limited to 305kmph.
The retuned chassis, new M-specific suspension, the M8 Gran Coupe’s shock absorbers and the xDrive all-wheel-drive system (4WD, 4WD Sport and 2WD), make up for better performance and handling.
