BMW has unveiled the 2021 M5 and M5 Competition, showcasing a lightly revised body, new performance modes, and a handful of mechanical upgrades.

The M5 is one of BMW’s flagship models and can easily seat five passengers, all while delivering plenty of power and speed from its V8. For 2021, the twin-turbo engine’s output remains at 600 HP and 553 lb-ft of torque, while the top-spec Competition iteration packs 617 HP and the same amount of torque.

Elsewhere we see adjustable suspension tuning and new shocks in the M5 Competition, making for a more fine-tuned ride. The Competition model also gets a “Track” mode, which turns off all driver aids and interior distractions such as music and the infotainment system for a more focused drive.

On the outside, the new M5 models have been given a more angular body that is most noticeable on the front and rear bumper, as well as a new set of LED headlights, a new kidney-shaped grille, and a rear apron that’s now offered in black.

All M5s now get a 12.3-inch infotainment display, which is over two inches bigger than the previous model’s screen, as well as wireless Android Auto functionality, natural speech recognition, and BMW’s cloud-based navigation system that makes for faster route calculation and live traffic information.

The base M5 starts at $104,495 USD, while the M5 Competition starts at $112,095 USD. Take a closer look at the cars above.

Elsewhere in the automotive world, Range Rover is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a limited-edition Autobiography model.
