We've known since the debut of the 2014 BMW M5 that it would offer an upgrade from the already-monstrous 560 horsepower to 575 horsepower thanks to a Competition Package. Now, BMW is showing off what the new hotter M5 variant can do.
Apparently donuts that enrage security guards are near the top of the list of the M5 Competition Package's key abilities. Handled like a bull being loosed into the ring, the Competition Package M5 eventually breaks loose from its cage and then cruises--rather sedately--down the road and into the sunset.
Of course, a little more power isn't the only thing that comes with the Competition Package upgrade: the suspension is upgraded with new springs, damper calibrations, and anti-roll bars; the active rear differential gets a custom setting that improves traction; the steering rack is programmed for more direct input and road feel; and the M chassis control system has been recalibrated to get the most out of the other upgrades.
If you're looking to pick an M5 Competition Package car out on the street, look for unique 20-inch alloy wheels and black chrome-tipped exhaust outlets.
