BMW M5 gets a minor facelift

A particularly striking innovation in the appearance of the BMW M5 is the M “kidney grille”, which now features the model designation and whose slats cite the double-spoke design of the M light alloys. In addition to standard xenon headlights, there is now the option of Adaptive LED Headlights which emit a particularly bright white light generated by a pair of LED units situated horizontally in the middle of each light ring. A standard feature on the BMW M5 are the new-design tail lights with strikingly thin LED light strips that generate a high contrast and add to the unmistakable night-time look.

The additional power is particularly noticeable at the back thanks to the Kelleners Sport valve-controlled stainless-steel rear silencers with four 90 mm diameter tailpipes. The KS5-S lettering is also a mild indication of the additional 100 hp over the standard model. The restrained rear spoiler, the mirror caps and rear diffuser insert have been given a carbon coating to underscore the car’s sporting personality. Also carbon coated, the side mouldings and the front-spoiler lip round off the Kelleners Sport Aerodynamic Kit for the current BMW M5.

Hamann M5

The Hamann customisation programme for the new M5 transforms the BMW more dynamic, more luxurious and even more exclusive. Wing extensions on the front of 25 mm on each side and on the rear of 30 mm on each side turn the 5-series into the kind of car only seen in the DTM or other touring-car championships. The front apron with integrated LED daytime driving lights, in cooperation with the rear apron, reduces upthrust in the Hamann M5, providing a decisive boost to handling and agility. This is supported by the side sill set, which significantly steadies the airflow between the two axles. The roof spoiler and rear spoiler additionally provide the necessary contact pressure on the asphalt. Particularly on winding country roads, the Hamann aerodynamics package comes to life, delivering pure driving pleasure.
