BMW’s decision to offer a revision for the M5 is a little bit surprising for us, considering the new generation was just unveiled at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. Still, it looks like the company wants to keep the M5 as fresh as all the other models in the 5 Series lineup . After being tested for a few months, the revised M5 made its world debut today and will be put on sale later in July.
Just like in the standard version, the M5 is going to receive only minor revisions on the front and rear. BMW will add in updated headlights and a new kidney grille, a new rear bumper and new graphics for the taillights.
The new M5 keeps the usual V-8 engine, but, for the first time, BMW is also offering a Competition Package that adds an extra 15 horsepower.
