BMW Competition Package
Coinciding with the release of the refreshed M5, BMW has released details of its Competition Package for the M5, M6 and M6 Gran Coupe models.

Output from the 4.4-litre biturbo V8 powerplant is raised by a modest 11 kW to 423 kW (575 hp), which shaves 0.1 seconds from the 0-100 km/h time and 0.2s on the sprint to 200 km/h. Whoa there Neddy!

Other upgrades include revised suspension and damping settings, more tautly tuned stabiliser bars and a 10 millimetre drop in ride height. The new hydraulic rack-and-pinion system with M-specific Servotronic function provides a more direct steering response, while the Active M Differential on the final drive receives its own control unit. The Dynamic Stability Control system gets its own specific M Dynamic mode resulting in sharpened handling characteristics. Vehicle set-ups can be configured by selecting the Comfort, Sport or Sport+ via the M Drive buttons on the steering wheel.

Visually, cars equipped with the Competition Package can be identified by their exclusively designed 20-inch M light-alloy wheels along with a sport exhaust system featuring customary M twin tailpipes.
