BMW M5 Storms onto the Scene

BMW M5 Storms onto the Scene

The BMW M5 has been described as having tons of power with enough speed and good looks to serve as a top notch ride in the world of Payback. Thanks to new turbochargers, ultra-efficient indirect charge air cooling and increased fuel injection pressure, BMW has been able to increase both the horsepower and torque output of the engine.

Official U.S. specs haven't been made public, but BMW announced that without pesky humans, the overseas M5 would weigh about 4,090 pounds.

The driver can also choose from Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus modes for the Variable Damper Control (VDC) system - which has M-specific tuning - and the M Servotronic steering. Switching to the M Dynamic mode (MDM, 4WD Sport) gives an additional performance boost.

Naturally with this much power, all four wheels are engaged with BMW's new M xDrive. That would allow it to accelerate to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in 2.9 seconds, as well as perform a quarter-mile run of 10.5 seconds at 126 mph (203 kph). A special 2WD mode sends power exclusively to the rear wheels, for all the smoky drifts you can handle.

Like its predecessors, the new BMW M5 gets its own distinctive visuals that blend form and function. For the 2018 model year, BMW has extracted 600 horsepower and 553 foot-pounds of torque from the M5's twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8, compared to the 575 horsepower and 500 foot-pounds it produces in the outgoing model.

BMW's new super sedan passes 200km/h in just 11.1sec on its way to a limited 250km/h top speed, which can be increased to 305km/h when the M Driver's Package is optioned. A series of performance settings, steering wheel controls, and transmission-mounted buttons are set in place to help you configure the M5's power.

Additionally, we also get to see the cop chases in a brand new and rather explosive trailer. The driver can use a button to adjust the engine sound as desired. These extend into the extremely lightweight carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) roof - a standard feature of the new M5.

Stopping power is handled by M compound brakes with blue-painted six-piston callipers up front and single-piston floating rotors at the rear.

The new BMW M5 can be ordered from September 2017, priced at €117,900, and deliveries will begin in spring 2018. A special edition of the outgoing M5, sold in extremely limited quantities in the USA, produced almost the same power.

Nevertheless, larger 20-inch seven-double-spoke rims wrapped in 275/35 (front) and 285/35 (rear) rubber are on the options list.

Each M5 First Edition will have exclusive "Frozen Dark Red Metallic" paint, as well as high-gloss "Shadow Line" trim for the kidney grille, M gills and quad exhaust tips. The options list includes newly developed M multifunction seats, which stand out with their bucket-seat-style construction and even better lateral support.
