Following in the footsteps of the M2 Competition, is the BMW is adding a little more performance to the M5 with the brand new, 2019 M5 Competition.

Churning out 625 HP and 553 lb-ft of torque, the M5 Competition is now good for a 0-60 sprint of just 3.3 seconds, a 0.3 improvement over the 2018 M5.

Better yet, though, the torque is available across a wider section of the torque band. The twin-turbo, 4.4-liter V8 gives you access to all 553 of those pounding feet from 1,800 rpm to 5,800 rpm, for a total of 200 more rpm.

But BMW hasn't just worked on getting more power out of its engine. It has also worked on making sure that power gets to the wheels better. And that involves a lot of needle-focus detail work. The spring rate on the engine mounts has improved from 3,312 lbs/inch to 5,139 lbs/inch. That, says BMW, allows the power to get to the transmission faster and has a "noticeable" impact on performance.

It isn't just engine location that has improved, though. The M5 Competition also sits 7 mm closer to the ground thanks to tweaks with the springs and dampers. BMW has also given the front wheels a little more negative camber, swapped out the rubber mounts on the toe links for ball joints, has firmed up the spring rate in the rear anti-roll bar.

And although the power is funneled to all wheels through BMW's 8-speed M Steptronic transmission, there is a RWD function that will allow you to steer as much with the wheels behind you as the one in your hands.

Shod in specially-designed light-alloy wheels, the M5 Competition also boasts a number of visual upgrades. The door handles, mirror bases, grille mesh, and the M gills on the front flanks are all finished in high-gloss black. High-gloss Shadow Line trim also rounds off the door window surrounds, and the B-Pillar trim.

Production starts in July and prices start at $110,995.
