It may not be quite as exclusive as the , but the BMW M5 Competition Edition offers a similar set of thoughtful updates. Unfortunately, it won't be available in the U.S.

BMW is selling 200 copies of its M5 Competition Edition for the European market. The model features a familiar 4.4-liter V-8 tuned to produce 600 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. That's up from the 560 hp and 500 lb-ft offered on the . BMW claims its Competition Edition can sprint to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds. The Competition Package comes standard on this model, adding a beefier suspension, revised steering system, and other performance upgrades.

Unique badges and paint colors distinguish the Competition Edition from the rest of the M5 lineup. Half the models will feature a Carbon Black metallic paint job, and the other half will bear a Mineral White metallic exterior. Twenty-inch double-spoke M wheels in a Jet Black finish pair well with the high gloss black kidney grilles and black side inlets. The rear diffuser and mirror caps are dressed in carbon.
