The facelifted BMW M5 is one of the most impressive super sedans currently on sale, and this new gallery in UK specification showcases it perfectly.
Compared to the pre-facelift M5, the revamped one has a revised front fascia with a new grille, more aggressive headlights, and a beefier bumper. The rear end has also been freshened up with redesigned taillights and a new diffuser. While these styling alterations are relatively minor, they do transform the look of the super sedan.
Some minor tweaks have also been made to the interior, including the fitment of an enlarged 12.3-inch infotainment system complete with Android Auto and cloud-based navigation. There is also a tweaked center console and two illuminated buttons, one for the M Mode and one for tweaking the vehicle setup. The interior of the M5 Competition pictured looks particularly impressive thanks to the luscious black leather and array of carbon fiber accents.
Like the pre-facelift model, the 2021 M5 is powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 which in standard form is good for 592 hp and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque. The Competition is a little more potent as power has been increased to 617 horses. Both M5 and M5 Competition models feature an eight-speed automatic transmission sending power through an all-wheel drive system that includes 2WD, 4WD and 4WD Sport modes. The M5 Competition hits 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.3 seconds, while the ‘regular’ M5 needs 3.4 seconds to hit the same mark.
