After the new family of M Performance Parts for the M5 has been teased next to the new M5 MotoGP Safety Car it’s time for the official worldwide audience unveiling at the SEMA show in Las Vegas.
The high performance executive sedan comes with a new aerodynamic body kit using a bevy of carbon fiber components – among them a front bumper attachment, extended side sills, and a rear spoiler, along with a new rear diffuser. There are also carbon fiber mirror caps, front and air breather trim side grilles and even an M Performance coilover suspension with red springs and adjustable spring plates.
The M5 retains the powerful biturbo 4.4-liter V8 engine good for 600 hp so taking care of stopping power are new carbon ceramic brakes with racing-derived brake pads. Next up is the M Performance sports exhaust system, which is actually exclusive to the United States and Canada – made out of titanium and with optional carbon fiber tips. Design distinctions include the body stripes in the M colors, a carbon fiber engine cover and in the cockpit you can have a new steering wheel with a mix of Alcantara and carbon fiber – the latter also present on the shift paddles and the gear shift lever.
