BMW M Performance Parts Make The New M5 Even More Impressive

Shortly after a selection of teaser images were released online, the M Performance Parts for the all-new 2018 BMW M5 have just been revealed prior to the SEMA Show commencing in Las Vegas.

Set to be available from the spring of 2018, the parts don’t just add some extra visual appeal to the super sedan but they also aid in aerodynamics and ensure the car offers truly breathtaking performance.

In terms of aero, the M Performance Parts consist of a new front splitter, side sill attachments, a carbon fiber rear spoiler, the available carbon fiber rear spoiler ‘Pro’, and a rear diffuser. Made from carbon fiber, these parts are perfectly complemented by M Performance wing mirror caps and new trim around the kidney grilles.

Elsewhere, BMW’s M division has designed a set of coilovers for the M5 which improve handling, feature adjustable spring plates and have eye-catching red coil springs. Alongside the tricked-out suspension, a set of costly carbon ceramic brakes will be available for the M5.

Customers in the United States and Canada will also have the option of an M Performance sports exhaust system incorporating a titanium rear muffler and carbon fiber tailpipe trims. Not only does the exhaust improve the sound of the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8, but it also reduces counter-pressure and marginally improves performance.

In the cabin, an M Performance Drive Analyzer has also been developed for the M5. Derived from motorsport, it measures and evaluates important vehicle dynamics data and provides these details directly to the smartphone of the user. Other small touches include carbon fiber shift paddles, M Performance floor mats and a new key wallet.

    all the striping makes it look more like a ricer, hardly impressive. All the exposed carbon is even kinda gaudy and cheap looking.

      The ricer in me loves this and the 30th Anniversary M3 lol

      • Kash

        Well of course you do NSX, i expected you to be drooling all over this. lol.

    • Bo Hanan

      It’s not what “M” stood for.

    • europeon

      I like the stripe, it’s very subtle.
      What I don’t like and and I don’t understand, just like you don’t, are all the CF bits and pieces.

      • Kash

        See i rather take the CF than the stripes tbh. You can at least wrap the CF bits along with the rest of the car.

        • europeon

          You can strip the stripe (!) off the car too, I doubt it’s painted 🙂

  • pcurve

    Might as well put M stripe going horizontally across the bonnet…

    • Bash

      No!

  • SteersUright

    This isn’t an M5, its an M7 in everything but the badge on the back. Look at all prior M5’s except for this and the very last model, they were lean, lithe, capable, sleeper super sports cars with 4 doors. This thing is HUGE, its just too damn massive and in no way related to the pinnacle of M5’s, the E39 version.

  • Vassilis

    Nuh, too much for an M5.

  • needs a polycarbonate hood too see that carbon….
