New looks, new features, same powertrain
Currently in its sixth generation, the latest iteration of the BMW M5 and M5 Competition made their Malaysian debut today in conjunction with the BMW M brand's 50th anniversary. Prices are as mentioned below:
- 2022 BMW M5 - RM998,800
- 2022 BMW M5 Competition - RM1,188,800
The two new models will also arrive with the BMW M 50 Years Emblems as standard. Both variants feature a host of new M-specific exterior equipment including M rear spoilers as well as a new three-dimensional element on the LED rear lights.
Exclusive to the New BMW M5 Competition is the M Sports exhaust system, with slim finish for enlarged and precise look and an exclusive M5 competition badge.
Inside, the New BMW M5 and BMW M5 Competition have been optimised to feature a larger 12.3-inch Control Display with touchscreen functionality, providing greater readability on the myriad of functions that the driving dynamics systems and the BMW M xDrive offer.
Also new is the two-button operating concept in the centre console, which was also seen in the BMW M8 Gran Coupé.
Powering the New BMW M5 and BMW M5 Competition is the same engine as before, which is the 4.4‑litre V8 engine with BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology, tuned to a maximum output of 600 hp and a peak torque of 750 Nm for the New BMW M5, and 625 hp with a peak torque of 750 Nm for the new M5 Competition.
This allows the New BMW M5 to achieve century sprint in just 3.4 seconds, while the New BMW M5 Competition reaches the mark a fraction of a second quicker, in just 3.3 seconds.
Both variants are paired as standard with an eight‑speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic, Adaptive Suspension, as well as the M xDrive all-wheel drive- which also includes a 2WD setting for pure rear-wheel drive.
Top speed for the New BMW M5 is capped at 250 km/h, while the New BMW M5 Competition impresses with an enhanced top speed of 305 km/h with the standard inclusion of the M Drivers Package.
The New BMW M5 Competition exclusively features new shock absorbers from the BMW M8 Gran Coupé and a retuned chassis, offering even greater driveability and handling at the limit, complete with superior comfort levels.
Sitting 7 mm lower than the BMW M5 and incorporating other well-conceived tweaks to the suspension and springs, the new BMW M5 Competition is set-up for extra power and truly comes into its own on the racetrack.
Both new models are now available for pre-booking on the BMW Shop Online platform at a fee of RM 5,000.
Owners of the new BMW M models will also receive the complete BMW Group Malaysia Premium Ownership experience which includes:
• BMW 5-Year Unlimited Mileage Warranty with Free Scheduled Service Programme
• BMW Roadside Assistance and Accident Hotline
• The BMW Group Loyalty+ Mobile App - BMW Privileges Card
