Here’s 150 Pics Of The New BMW M5 Competition To Cure Your Monday Morning Blues

It’s Monday morning. The weekend’s over, and the work week’s beginning. Which can be a bit of a bummer (especially if you don’t spend your working time looking at cars all day like we do). But we hope we can alleviate your case of the Monday Morning Blues with a whole bunch of photos of the latest and greatest performance sedan.

We’re referring, of course, to the new BMW M5 Competition. It’s like the “regular” M5 – which is no slouch as it is – but more so.

How much more so, you ask? Try 625 metric horsepower (460 kW) and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque on for size. That’s more than the Ferrari 458 Speciale offered, and almost as much as the 488 GTB – channeled from a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission.

All it takes is 3.3 seconds to reach 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill, and 10.8 to reach 124 mph (200 km/h). Those are supercar figures (or at least would have been just a few years ago), and you can bring three or four of your best friends or family members along for the ride. And that trick M xDrive switchable traction system helps ensure it’ll go as well through the corners (sideways) as it will in a straight line.

That’s what journalists have been discovering over the weekend during the press launch of Bavaria’s new ultimate performance machine at the Ascari Race Resort and the surrounding roads (which are some of the best we’ve ever driven) in Malaga, Spain. So to coincide, the manufacturer released a whole bunch of photos of the M5 Competition doing its thing, and we’re glad to present them all, in high resolution, for your viewing pleasure (and hopefully start your week off right) in the gallery below.

    In the pictures and in person it looks so chunky.

      I dunno. It’s growing on me when I see it out and about. I’m partial to discreet sport sedans that don’t try too hard. Which is why I could never see myself in an MB with their lady interiors.

      BMW 5 series are made to be big for families, the M5 and the Competition are no exception to the rule.

    I love this car! Heck, I loved the last M5! And if I had an extra $140k laying around, I’d probably get one. I love these AWD systems that can be switched to RWD.

      I love the F10.
      This, I am not so sure. I don’t feel the design is cohesive enough.
      It just doesn’t grab me, especially the rear.

    Sweeeeet.

    Must admit I prefer the E63 S.

    No we can drive off the cliff of runaway climate change even faster while propping up our pathetic egos.
    Wow!
