So it is an M5 Competition after all, and not a mere M5 Competition Pack.

Keen eyes will notice the 2019 M5 Competition's ride height is seven millimeters lower than the standard M5.

Thanks to BMW M engineers, the already-impressive 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 from the M5 now has an emphasis on racetrack-ready performance, with peak power jumping to an astounding 460kW.

Details about the BMW M5 Competition have leaked online ahead of the car's expected unveiling event next week. "With more power and a further refined drive system, the M5 Competition will take the M5 experience to an even higher level", Werner added. Like the tweaked engine, there's a bespoke M Sport exhaust for the M5 Competition.

The M5 Competition uses the same 8-speed M Steptronic transmission as before.

Power isn't the only upgrade to the M5 Competition Edition.

BMW has not detailed any additional changes to the M5's eight-speed paddle-shift automatic or the car's XDrive switchable all-wheel-drive system. There are toe links with ball joints instead of rubber mounts at the rear for "even more precise wheel guidance", a new mounting for the front anti-roll bar, a firmer rear anti-roll bar, shorter auxiliary springs to reduce fluctuation in wheel loads and even new engine mounts. Extra camber has been dialled into the front axle, and the rear gains a stiffer anti roll bar. Interestingly BMW now offers guidelines on the Variable Damper control, too: apparently Sport is "perfected for testing on the Nurburgring's Nordschleife circuit" (so presumably a B-road as well), with Sport Plus there for "ultra-dynamic driving on grand prix tracks".

Carbon ceramic discs are available as an option.

Speaking of bystanders, keen auto spotters will be able to recognize the 2019 BMW M5 Competition on the street via its unique two-tone Y-spoke alloy wheels and gloss-black accents on grille, door handles, mirrors, window trim and front gill slats.

Low-weight M compound brakes are featured as standard on the BMW M5 Competition. These include, body colour door handles and high-gloss trims, like the wing mirror caps and the M gills on the front flanks.

Small aesthetic adjustments are made as a nod to the car's enhanced performance, including gloss black for the surround on the front and side grilles and rear boot lip, plus Competition badging.

The spacious, supportive interior is further highlighted by exclusive M5 Competition highlights.

Full specifications will be revealed closer to the M5 competition's Australian arrival.
