The F90 M5 is based on the G30 5 Series and uses an all-wheel drive powertrain, being the first time that an M5 has not been rear-wheel drive. However the all-wheel drive system is biased towards the rear wheels and be configured to send power to the rear wheels only (if the electronic stability control is disabled). In May 2018, the M5 Competition model was announced. The M5 Competition retains the same powertrain as the standard M5, but total power output has been increased to 460 kW (617 bhp) at 6,000 rpm. Torque remains the same at 750 N⋅m (553 lb⋅ft) between 1,800–5,800 rpm. 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) acceleration time has also improved and now stands at 3.3 seconds, 0.1 seconds quicker than the standard car along with 0–200 km/h (0–124 mph) acceleration time improving to 10.8 seconds, 0.3 seconds quicker than the standard car.
