BMW M5 Competition LCI presents M Performance Parts at the Nurburgring


BMW’s recent design choices have been hit and miss, but the 5 Series G30 is widely regarded as one of the company’s best-looking models. This M5 LCI certainly looks classy, ​​and traditionalists should find it pleasing since there are no split headlights and/or a gigantic grille. Spy photos have revealed work on the eighth-generation sedan is well underway, and in the meantime, the Bavarians are showing what you can buy today.

Joining the Isle Of Men Green M8 Gran Coupe LCI at the BMW M Media test driving event held during the 24-hour race weekend at the Nürburgring was this handsome M5. Not just any version of the super saloon, but the hotter Competition version adorned with a series of M Performance bits. Finished in what appears to be Alvite Gray metallic, the AMG E63 contender has several carbon fiber upgrades, chief among which is the trunk lid spoiler.

A closer look at the athletic sedan reveals a prominent front splitter, side mirror caps and a more aggressive rear diffuser, all made from carbon fiber. The M Performance Parts catalog contains many more goodies suitable for the M5 than shown here, including carbon or chrome quad tailpipes, a carbon fuel filler cap and motorsport-inspired racing stripes.

With the M5 CS now retired since it was designed as a one-year-only model, the M5 Competition returns as the top model of the 5 Series family. BMW has already confirmed that the new 5er generation G60 will arrive in 2023, with an all-electric i5. As for the M5 G90, it will have a plug-in hybrid configuration once it goes on sale probably in 2024.

Meanwhile, the current M5 still uses the older iDrive 7, which some say isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as not everyone likes the side-by-side screen setup that sticks out of the board on board. Recent spy photos of the upcoming Series 5 have revealed that it will upgrade to iDrive 8 to echo the new Series 7 and 3 LCI.
