With the release of the brand-new BMW M5, the German-based carmaker also offered a fine-tuned model in the shape of the M5 Competition, which offers more power and some cool M goodies at the exterior. However, if the latter one doesn’t suite your dreams, then you can also resort to some aftermarket modifications.
Everything is possible today, especially in the tuning segment, with plenty of aftermarket shops that offer customized services depending on the model in question. For BMW especially, AC Schnitzer from Germany has become a dedicated tuner, willing to satisfy your wildest dreams.
For the BMW M5 Competition, the technicians from AC Schnitzer are also throwing in some amazing customizations. One particular model has popped up at BMW Abu Dhabi Motors with a custom aero kit and new power under the hood.
For the model in question, AC Schnitzer have added a spectacular body wrap, along with the amazing body kit made from carbon fiber. This makes the M5 Competition more radical in terms of design.
The body kit comes with bespoke front splitter, carbon fiber front spoiler, carbon fiber ‘Racing’ rear wing, rear diffuser, carbon fiber side skirts, rear rood spoiler, high-gloss black accents on the grille, mirror caps and rear bumper, as well as the “Competition” badge. The mods also continue inside, with plenty of new features to separate it from the standard M5 Competition.
The power of this M5 Competition has also been modified. In standard form, the sports car comes with 617 horsepower and 750 Nm of torque. However, with the tuner`s ECU remapping and a couple of more mechanical enhancements, this lad here is now capable of churning out no less than 690 horsepower and staggering 850 Nm of torque.
With the factory sprint from standstill to 100 km/h performed in 3.3 seconds, with the new power kit, the BMW M5 Competition by AC Schnitzer is now able to perform the same distance in around 3.0 seconds, which is mind-blowing.
