To celebrate the performance brand becoming 50 years old, BMW has introduced the BMW M5 Competition 50 Jahre M Edition in India. The M5 Competition 50 Jahre M Edition costs around Rs 6 lakh more than the ordinary M5 Competition and is, like the latter, a CBU import. It is priced at Rs 1.79 crore (ex-showroom, India). Cosmetic improvements and several new functionalities are included with the increased expenditure. It has red M compound brakes and 20-inch black alloy wheels with a black chrome finish on the quad tailpipes of the standard M Sport exhaust system to create a striking contrast.
Exterior Features Of The BMW M5 Competition 50 Jahre M Edition
The 50 Jahre M Edition is only offered in Aventurine Red, a new BMW exclusive paint color, instead of the ordinary M5 Competition sedan. BMW has also applied a dark tint effect on the headlights and taillights of the M5 Competition 50 Jahre M Edition. Other notable features are the gloss black kidney grille, the roof coated in carbon fiber, the 20-inch black alloy wheels with red brake calipers, and the black M Sport exhaust system. The M5 Competition 50 Jahre M Edition has extra M emblems, including those at the front, rear, and hub caps, inspired by early BMW Motorsport racing cars, just like the other special editions. It has a distinctive pattern with semicircles in shades of blue, violet, and red.
Interior And Engine Of The BMW M5 Competition 50 Jahre M Edition
The interior design of the limited-edition M5 Competition is virtually unchanged from the ordinary vehicle. The leather merino upholstery, M seat belts, M seats with illuminated emblems on the headrests, and an anthracite-finished headliner are all standard on the M5 Competition 50 Jahre M Edition. Additionally, BMW added soft close doors and a comfort access system, which comes standard with keyless entry, auto locking, and a hands-free tailgate, to the BMW M5 Competition 50 Jahre M Edition. Furthermore, some of its additional features include the 12.3-inch digital driver’s display and infotainment system, ambient lighting, the 16-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The same 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine that powers the standard BMW M5 Competition 50 Jahre M Edition continues to produce 625hp and 750Nm. The limited edition M5 has an 8-speed torque converter automatic transmission that allows it to reach 100 kph in under 3.3 seconds. Additionally, it has an adjustable suspension, the xDrive all-wheel drive system, and three driving modes: Road, Sport, and Track. The 12.3-inch digital driver’s display and infotainment system, ambient lighting, the 16-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are some of its additional features.
BMW M5 Safety Features
Six airbags, attentiveness assistance, anti-lock brakes with brake assist, dynamic stability control (DSC), including electronic differential lock control (EDLC) and, active traction control (DTC), cornering brake control (CBC). An electric parking brake with auto hold, side-impact protection, an electronic vehicle immobilizer and crash sensors, ISOFIX child seat mounting, and an emergency spare wheel are all included in the list of safety features offered by BMW.
The eighth of 10 50 Jahre Edition vehicles slated for India is the M5 Competition 50 Jahre M Edition. Parking in tight spaces is made simpler by reassuring amenities like Parking Assistant Plus with Surround View Camera. Reversing Assistant offers unparalleled assistance while reversing out of a parking space or across narrow driveways. It helps by taking over driving and maintaining track of the past 50 meters traveled. With BMW Gesture Control, which recognizes six predefined hand motions for control of several functions, hands speak for you. The center console’s integrated smartphone holder enables inductive, wireless charging of mobile devices.
