Performance package for BMW M3 and M5

By PetrolHead on 11 May 2012

BMW M5 M Performance Edition

The F10M generation M5 has been on sale recently and already BMW has announced a M5 M Performance edition in the UK.

Revealed through a YouTube teaser video, the enhanced M5 will be available in three Frozen (matt) body colours: red, white and blue. Production will be extremely scarce at 30 units; ten vehicles for each color.

Though there might not be any performance upgrades, with the stock M5 containing a twin-turbo 4.4-litre V8 engine, with a beastly 552hp and 680Nm of torque.

BMW M3 M Performance Edition

Also revealed through YouTube is the M3 M Performance Edition.

Like the M5, a total of 30 examples will be made in a similar red, white and blue colour finishes. Changes seem purely cosmetic as performance is expected to be similar to the standard M3's 4.0-litre V8 with 414 horses.

However expect a high-spec equipment list to be offered as standard, and upgraded braking and suspension systems. Check out the blacked out grille as well, though it makes the famed 'kidney-grille' looks bigger.

Nonetheless, in my fantasy world where I am King, I'll take the M5 in blue and the M3 in red, thank you.
