Deconstructing the M5 Competition: M Town History with Mr AMG!

Added on 21 Dec 2020


The Mad Mayor of M Town: the M5 Competition!! Hey guys and welcome back to RBR!! And here is the M review you’ve been waiting for! Now i have reviewed the Standard M5, and found it to be the best Grand Touring super saloon around. But sooner than expected this new Competition has landed, and RBR as a channel has evolved since too, and now we love going into the how and why of a car!! So let’s get some perspective on this automotive icon by checking out the history of M Division, specifically with regards to the 5er M. We’ll look all the way from the first car by BMW Motorsport the M1, to the first taste M535i in the E12 model, and even the catalyst from Mercedes via it’s 190E 2.3 16v Cosworth. Then the first with the E28 M5, the larger E34, the untouchable E39 M5, the Black Sheep E60 With its V10, the turbo charged F10, and finally the F90. Yet now so soon comes the competition, BMW M have clearly stated when introducing this car, that now every high performance version of their M cars will get a standalone bonkers version. Be it comp, cs, GTS or otherwise. So let’s also see what you need to do to an M5, to make it a “Competition” for the reasonable £6500 upgrade cost. My question is, did is it just better then the standard M5? Or does it have its own purpose? Do you feel the quicker power, or are the charms elsewhere?
