2019 BMW M5 Competition review

The Competition supplants the regular M5 as the quickest and fastest BMW currently on sale. But is there enough comfy 'velvet glove' to the daily driving experience to complement the iron-fisted performance?

2019 BMW M5 Competition review: track test

Less than 12 months after the launch of the all-new BMW M5 comes a more powerful version called the Competition, only you'll struggle to pick the differences, at least on track. It's also thirty-grand more expensive.

2019 BMW M5 Competition review

Goodbye standard M5, hello M5 Competition; shortly the only version you'll be able to buy in Australia. Will the bump in performance be worth the jump in price?

2019 BMW M5 Competition review: Australian launch

We didn't really feel the M5 needed more, but then "enough" isn't a word we're too familiar with... A NOTE on the video: "Estoril in Spain" – silly Tony. He knows, of course, that it's in Portugal!

2018 BMW M5 review

Six generations on, and BMW's M Division has produced its finest sedan yet, the 2018 M5. A genuine tour de force in every respect.

BMW M5 Comparisons

2018 BMW M5 v Mercedes-AMG E63 S comparison

It’s a great Did You Know factoid that AMG wasn’t involved in the first express-spec E-Class. When Mercedes decided five years was long enough for the original (1985) M5 to have had its own way in the mid-range sports sedan arena – longer if you count the M535i – the Stuttgart brand sought the help of close-neighbour Porsche to create a muscled-up, V8-powered version of the W124 sedan...

400kW Club Comparison : Audi RS6 v BMW M5 v Jaguar XFR-S v Mercedes-Benz E63 S AMG

Chief executives sitting in lofty boardrooms make changes less frequently than the manufacturers of the cars they drive, or so it seems. One year ago we tested the BMW M5 and it was the only luxury muscle car with 400-plus kilowatts of power; the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG made 386kW, the Jaguar XFR 375kW...

BMW M5 v Jaguar XFR v Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG: Comparison Review

It's the BMW M5 versus its rivals, the Jaguar XFR and Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG, as Germany and Britain battle to take over as chair-car of luxury performance sedans. Words: Jez Spinks. Photos: Easton Chang Executives have been in a rush to make money long before fictional Wall Street warlord Gordon Gekko proclaimed, “greed is good”...

BMW M5: Victoria Police take delivery of Australia’s fastest highway patrol car

It’s the fastest and most expensive highway patrol car to ever wear a police badge on active duty in Australia.  And with a staggeringly quick 0 to 100km/h time of just 3.4 seconds – as fast as a Porsche – it will be impossible for the bad guys to outrun. Victoria Police are about to be the envy of their colleagues across the country with a pair of high-performance BMW sedans making as much power as a V8 Supercar...

Honda NSX drags BMW M5 Competition, AMG E63 S - video

The Honda NSX should be faster than a BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, right? After all, it's a hybrid supercar, and the other two are 'just' four-door sedans. Of course, BMW and Mercedes-Benz have a knack for making their four-door sedans fast enough to scare supercars. With 460kW/760Nm and 450kW/800Nm respectively, the BMW M5 Competition and Mercedes-AMG E63 S are seriously quick...
