The 2020 BMW M5 Competition needs a better name. The “hammer” is already done. Come on, Dodge has his colorful Hellcats and Demons. Yes, BMW is a understated German luxury brand, but adding “Competition” to the name and cover of the standard BMW M5 2020 is too subtle for a mid-size sedan.
As expected, the 2020 BMW M5 has a series of unique design touches that set it apart competition on which it is based. Frozen Dark Gray II matt paint was created by BMW Individual, and BMW says it uses special pigmentation that creates “the appearance of a matte silk surface”. While the 20-inch wheels were taken from the regular competition 2020 BMW M5 because they were painted in graphite gray and the brake calipers are in a new shiny black color. To round off the exterior, BMW removed the badge from the tailgate.
But it’s inside that things get really crazy. The interior is finished in black merino leather with special beige contrast stitching, which is not an option in the normal 2020 BMW M5. However, the beige stitching is not what draws attention: the golden finish of the center console, the dashboard and the door panels are. BMW says the material is a “shiny gold anodized aluminum carbon structure” and basically looks like shiny gold carbon fiber. The center console panel is engraved with a plaque indicating “2020 BMW M5“; the thresholds also receive this engraving. On top of all that, the 2020 BMW M5 comes with the Executive and M Driver packages as standard. A new feature that debuts in Series 5 in the new group of 12.3-inch digital meters from BMW. With the 10.3-inch central display, BMW calls the configuration Live Cockpit Professional, and the system was seen for the first time in the 8 series and the X5. We anticipate that the digital cluster will reach the usual 2020 BMW M5 models for the 2020 model year.
This can reduce a 647hp Ford GT supercar to 60mph (BMW says it will do it in 3.1 seconds, but Car and Driver timed a normal 2020 BMW M5 in 2.8 seconds, so it is almost certain that ‘It will overtake the second time in GT 3. And its claim of 10.9 seconds over a quarter of a mile is only 0.1 seconds behind the Ford, or the Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye of 797 horsepower. crazy, or in German, Der Wahnsinn. The 617 horsepower of the 2020 BMW M5 competition and 553 pound-feet of torque is also Wahnsinn, as I discovered during the tours on my land, the Monticello Motor Club at Catskills in New York.
Only 300 units of the 2020 BMW M5 were built, and only 30 arrived in the United States. The 2020 BMW M5 will be a little more common, as BMW is building 350 and sending 35 to the United States. Its price starts at $ 128,995, which is $ 17,000 more expensive than a 2019 BMW M5 competition.
