0-62mph in 3.4 seconds*, the first ever carbon roof on an M5, intense performance with the M xDrive all-wheel drive system and high-precision gear changes with the eight-speed M Steptronic transmission. And that's not all. A power output of 441kW (600hp) and a torque of up to 750Nm; the M TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine in the new BMW M5 leaves nothing to be desired.
The high-revving V8 Bi-turbo engine has two TwinScroll turbochargers with variable turbine geometry, High-Precision Injection and a fully variable Valvetronic valve control. Combined with the eight-speed Steptronic transmission and M xDrive all-wheel drive system, adrenaline-charged driving experiences are guaranteed.
It's clear that the new BMW M5 is derived from the same genes that created the rest of the M family, yet it is also a pioneer amongst the pack. Key to its weight loss from its predecessor is the addition of the new carbon roof; the first to ever be installed on an M5.
Other distinctive M features include: 20" M light alloy wheels style 706M, M Twin Tailpipes, striking M kidney grille with High-gloss Black double slats and M mirror caps with aerodynamic winglet.
Through combining the agility and precision of the standard drive with the smoothness and traction of all-wheel drive, M xDrive with Active M Differential allows for even more intense performance in the new BMW M5.
M xDrive controls the torque distribution between the front and rear axle via a regulated clutch, engaging the front axle only when it senses that the back wheels have reached the absolute limit of their grip. In doing so, maximum driving dynamics are achieved on every road.
The new BMW M5 has a number of features – inside and out – to make each journey as comfortable as possible. For example, the Comfort Access system allows you to simply approach your new BMW M5, open the door and press the Start button, thus eliminating the need to search your bag or pockets for your keys. Your unique key is recognised remotely by the Comfort Access sensors.
Inside, the new M Multifunctional seats with illuminated M5 logo reinforce the car's athleticism, with multiple adjustment options allowing maximum comfort, while lower seat bases and high side bolsters provide lateral support.
