BMW has launched a comprehensive range of exclusive M Performance Parts for the BMW M5. All of these components from the M Performance Parts accessory range were developed using BMW M motorsport know-how and are perfectly harmonized with each other. They underscore the high-performance sedan’s sporty and luxurious appearance and fulfill functional requirements in terms of aerodynamics, cooling and lightweight construction. Most of these exclusive M Performance Parts for the BMW M5 will be available as retrofit components when the vehicle is launched to the market in March 2018, with further products following in July 2018.
The numerous highlights featured in the accessory range developed especially for the BMW M5 include the package comprising M Performance aerodynamics components. All of these parts are made from lightweight carbon fiber and are elaborately handcrafted.
The following aerodynamics components are available: a newly designed front attachment, side sill attachments, a carbon fiber rear spoiler, a carbon fiber rear spoiler Pro and a rear diffuser. All of these components accentuate the BMW M5’s powerful and sporty appearance, whilst ensuring optimized aerodynamic characteristics plus even sportier handling.
Additional components from the M Performance Parts accessory range have been perfectly adapted to the aerodynamics package and now provide additional accents to the BMW M5. The visible carbon fiber front and air breather trim side grilles bearing the M logo and M Performance carbon fiber mirror caps further enhance the carbon fiber look. The M Performance side sill foils accentuate the side sill attachments, optimally rounding off the distinctively sporty look provided by the aerodynamics package.
Latest technology from motorsport brings the BMW M5’s performance onto the road, whilst guaranteeing superior driving behavior right up to the car’s limit. Thanks to an even sportier set-up, the new BMW M Performance coil over suspension developed specifically for the BMW M5 ensures excellent road-holding and increases driving dynamics resulting from a more direct connection of the vehicle body with the road. Moreover, red coil springs also add further visual highlights. The spring plates are adjustable.
Carbon-ceramic brakes guarantee superior braking characteristics. The sports disc pads are based on highly durable, motorsports-proven racing brake pads and offer advantages such as a shorter braking distances, better brake response as well as higher thermal resilience. Furthermore, the race-oriented interpretation of brake-force distribution provides for enhanced dynamic brake control.
The new BMW M Performance sports exhaust system, which will be on sale exclusively in the USA and Canada, guarantees an emotional motorsport sound. The end muffler is made from titanium with carbon fiber tailpipe trims additionally available. Optimized exhaust gas routing with reduced counter-pressure enhances the beefy V8 TwinTurbo sound and underscores the sporty driving experience.
The M Performance Drive Analyzer, also derived from motorsport, is an innovative tool for recording and evaluating all important vehicle dynamics data. The system offers comprehensive, professional possibilities to record and analyze, which can be evaluated and displayed on the smartphone. The Drive Analyzer determines a variety of relevant indicators such as diverse engine data, speed and peak values, engaged gear, use of accelerator pedal and brakes as well as lateral acceleration. When established, the results can be directly shown on the smartphone as videos or graphic representations via the M Performance Drive Analyzer App, which is available free of charge to BMW customers.
Furthermore, customers also wishing to capture their drive on film, BMW M Performance Parts offers the Trackfix action camera holder, which can be mounted in the threaded bush of the towing lug either at the front or rear end of the vehicle.
M Performance Parts for the BMW M5 M bring that true racetrack feeling to everyday life – also in terms of visual presence. These include motorsport stripes in typical M colors, which highlight the car’s sporty design even further and lend it its very own individual character. The elaborately handcrafted M Performance carbon fiber engine cover extension kit is a real eye-catcher and also makes the car’s racing genes visible where its performance has its origins – in the engine compartment.
