    The 2014 BMW M5 Facelift will come to market in the next few months and a new package will be offered by the M folks. The Competition Package will be available for the F10 M5 LCI and it will offer 11kW / 15hp extra. Another goodies in the super sporty package will include a specific suspension, new M steering wheel, tailored MDM application, exclusive new 20 inch wheels and new sport exhaust system with Black Chrome tailpipes. The maximum speed will also be raised to 305km / h.

    With the upgraded power, the 4.4-liter (4395cc) turbocharged unit with BMW M TwinPower Turbo will now produce 580 horsepower and 680Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque from only 1500rpm. The high-rev unit should rocket the M5 to 62 mph even faster than the 4.4 seconds previously reported.

    Also seen in the video below, yellow brake calipers indicate the use of a new package.

    Design wise, the LCI F10 M5 will get a new set of kidney grilles double slatted and sporting the M5 badge on them, a trait started by the new M6. Optional squared corona lights will be offered as well.

    We expect to see facelifted M5 to debut in September at Frankfurt Auto Show.
