Following an early test drive, the editors at Motor Trend magazine pronounced the all-new M5 “the smoothest, most powerful, most elegant and most refined” M5 model to date.
BMW chose to replace the 5.0-liter V10 in the previous generation M5 with a new turbocharged, 4.4-liter V8 engine that delivers up to 560 hp and 500 lb/ft of torque. The output ratings from the 4.4-liter not only represent increases of 10 and 30 percent respectively over last year’s model. BMW has made this most powerful motor ever used in a BMW M. Thanks to advanced engine technology—such as twin-scroll turbocharging, VALVETRONIC system and Double VANOS technology—acceleration is smooth and instantaneous with maximum torque available at just 1,500 rpm and a 0-60 time just a tick over four seconds.
BMW has taken the time to simplify the driving settings of the all-new M5, in comparison to the previous model. As a M5 driver you can now choose between three modes: Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus—to adjust the parameters of the car’s steering and suspension. The dual-clutch transmission offers three shifting-performance programs, similar to the drive setting programs, in both automatic and manual modes.
