The BMW M5 and BMW M6 will get an all-new range of M Performance accessories derived from the BMW M3 DTM touring car raced by the 2011 champion Martin Tomczyk.
Exterior modifications include a striking M Performance body stripe and the familiar kidney grille finished in gloss black. There’s also a variety of lightweight carbon fibre trim, such as wing mirrors, a rear spoiler and a rear diffuser. To match the visual drama, BMW will also offer a titanium exhaust system for a more raucous soundtrack, which is 10kg lighter than the standard system.
Interior changes are less dramatic, with customers able to spec stainless steel pedals, M Performance floor mats and various pieces of carbon fibre trim, which include the gear selector, centre console and dash. A leather and Alcantara steering wheel with race display – essentially a set of LEDs to help you change gear at the correct time – completes the interior offerings.
Sadly, the M Performance pack consists purely of visual upgrades so you’ll have to make do with the 552bhp available in both the M5 and M6. You can, however, spec carbon ceramic brakes, which are 19.4kg lighter than the standard steel discs and come with 20-inch M light-alloy wheels.
The M Performance accessories will be made available in the UK early next year but prices are yet to be announced.
