Most-powerful BMWs launched, will they come to India too?

The BMW M5 and M6 with Competition Package boast 575hp each between the four variants and record the fastest ever-official zero to 62mph time. This new BMW M5 Saloon receives the recent changes to the 5 Series range while also adding M specific enhancements such as the M Double-spoke kidney grille, currently seen on the M6 Coupé and Convertible, as well as the new M Steering Wheel with M DCT paddles that feature on these models.

To the rear, the tail-lights feature new Thin Blade technology, which provides clear defined light making it instantly recognisable as a BMW. Building on this enhanced design, power output is increased to 575hp providing the punch for the new Competition Package but also adds Sport suspension settings, Sport steering, Sport exhaust with Black Chrome exhaust tailpipes and exclusive 20-inch Double-spoke M light-alloy wheels.

Additionally the Active M Differential is tuned to enhance agility during cornering while the M Dynamic Mode (MDM) is tuned to allow higher thresholds before the DSC intervenes.

The Competition Package comes as a £6,700 option on top of the existing ‘standard’ M5 priced at £73,505  (about Rs 70lakhs) OTR. Other new options include 20-inch alloy wheels in black, an enhanced colour palette, upholstery and interior trim choice and Adaptive LED headlights.

As the M range is a complete body import in India, we could expect BMW to get these models as a part of brand building strategy. The M5 is already on sale in India and we won’t be surprised to see these variants come in India.

BMW India had recently began the assembly of the MINI range and also introduced the diesel variant.
