With the least of surprise involved, this engine together with the 8 speed M Steptronic transmission can make the car sprint to three-digit speeds in just 3.3 seconds! As you might have guessed by now, all four wheels of the M5 Competition are powered.

To complement this brutal performance, the M5 Competition also gets new shock absorbers, active M differential, improved engine mounting, and a highly performance-oriented suspension. The chassis also has high degrees of rework gone into it. There are selectable drive modes, which BMW calls ‘Driving Experience Control’ and a dedicated Track mode for unleashing the entire potential of the car on a race track.
