Rumored: M5 Competition Package
Remember when 560 horsepower was a lot of power? Now the M5s 560hp is coming under fire from competitors with comparable horsepower numbers. To keep the M5 on top rumors are swirling that Bavaria is working on a competition package. Unlike pervious competition packages, such as the M3 competition, this package will include a power bump to keep the M5 in front. At least in the power department.
For reference the stock M5 is powered by the S63tu making 560 horsepower and 500 ft-lbs of torque. This is what the rumor mill says about the possible competition package for the F10 M5.
What is your guess on pricing for an M5 competition package?
Here's what you can expect according to what we're hearing:
- Power bump of approximately 15 hp, probably a few torques too
- Competition Pack-specific suspension
- New M steering wheel
- New 20-inch wheels, probably lightweight
- New sport exhaust system with black chrome tips
- Increased top speed
