BMW unveils the most powerful BMW M5 sedan ever. The new 2019 BMW M5 Competition Sedan raises the bar for performance, agility and precision within its class. The M5 Competition Sedan delivers a driving experience with motorsport undertones. It succeeds in blending performance, a superbly exclusive aura and an unruffled ease in everyday use.
Light-alloy wheels specially developed for the 2019 BMW M5 Competition Sedan play a part in its exceptional performance capabilities and add to the model's exclusive looks. Other distinctive design features include high-gloss black finishers on the door handles, mirror bases and mirror triangles, plus the exterior mirror caps and the mesh of the signature M gills in the front flanks. The kidney grille's surrounds feature high-gloss black accenting as does the detailing for the rear bumper cover.
The 4.4-liter V8 now generates 617 hp at 6,000 rpm. Peak torque stands at 553 lb-ft. between 1,800 and 5,860 rpm. This means the linear power delivery for which M models have become synonymous for is sustained for even longer -- into a rev band where the engine's maximum output comes into play. The modified power delivery results in a faster 0 to 60 mph acceleration time of just 3.1 seconds, while the 124 mph mark is reached from a standing start in 10.8 seconds.
The task of transferring the new 2019 BMW M5 Competition's engine power to the wheels is handled by the eight-speed M Steptronic transmission. Short shift times and swift, precise responses to every nudge of the accelerator ensure that the engine's capabilities are instantly translated into action.
Three different modes offering a choice of efficient, sporty or ultra-high performance driving can be activated using the Drivelogic rocker switch on the gear selector.
The intelligent all-wheel-drive M xDrive system technology is capable of effortlessly directing the M5 Competition's greater power to the road in and generating just enough extra traction to achieve acceleration times worthy of a super-sports car.
