This December sees the fifth generation of the world’s most successful high-performance saloon arrive in the Middle East region. The new BMW M5 combines compelling track performance with the comprehensive practicality of a luxurious business saloon.
The new BMW M5 is an exceptionally dynamic high-performance sports car with four doors and five seats, a further development of the concept originally initiated in 1984 with the first generation BMW M5.It features the world premiere of a newly developed BMW M high-performance, high-revving, 4.4-litre V8 engine with an M Twin Power Turbo package. With twin-turbo technology, direct petrol injection and fully variable valve control, the V8 engine produces 560 hp from 6000-7000rpm and a maximum of 680 Nm of torque from 1500rpm.
The result is a lag-free power delivery giving typical M car thrust whilst delivering a significantly improved balance between performance and fuel consumption. The new BMW M5 is capable of accelerating to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds. Top speed is limited to 250 km/h, but can be raised to 305 km/h with the M Driver’s Package.Thanks to use of extensive Efficient Dynamics technology, including Auto Start-Stop and Brake Energy Regeneration, fuel consumption is cut by more than 30 per cent when compared to the previous model.The new BMW M5 has outstandingly agile handling thanks to its innovative rear axle differential with Active M Differential lock, which enables a fully variable distribution of power between the rear wheels.
