BMW to Offer M5/M6 Competition

Report

Competition Package expected to be introduced for revised M5 and the entire M6 range, bringing with it a 15hp boost to 575.

If you’re a fan of BMW’s 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8, there are a number of different ways you can get it. There’s the M5 sedan, the M6 coupe, M6 convertible, M6 Gran Coupe – and they all pack 560 horsepower. (The X5 M and X6 M performance crossovers use a slightly de-tuned version of the same at 550 hp.) But if you’re looking for just a little more muscle from your eight-cylinder, twin-turbo M car, we’ve got good news. When the facelifted M5 (recently spied) arrives this summer, it will reportedly bring with it a new Competition Package.

The kit is projected to boost output to 575 hp, and additionally come with different wheels, a revised suspension and steering rack and black exhaust tips. The package will reportedly be available on the updated M5 as well as all versions of the M6, which ought to bring the BMWs closer to the new 585hp Mercedes-Benz E63 and CLS63 AMG S models. No word on potential availability for the crossovers, though.
