The new BMW M5 fits the bill as a perfect sleeper, that car which looks like your everyday commuter, but under the hood it packs enough performance to put many supercars to shame. The M5 being the fastest version from the company’s executive sedan lineup, the 5 series, it offers a perfect balance between comfort and performance. Moreover, it is also regarded as one of the fastest saloons in the world.
Powering the new BMW M5 is a 4.4-litre V8 turbocharged petrol engine that generates 600bhp of power and 750Nm of torque. The powerful engine comes mated to bespoke eight-speed torque converter from ZF and gets a limited slip differential to aid the dynamics. Additionally, the vehicle is capable of sprinting from 0-100kmph in less than five seconds.
Based on the same body shell as the 5 Series, the M5 gets a sharp aerodynamically sculpted front bumper with a lip spoiler, larger alloys, running boards and a rear splitter with the signature quad exhausts. But the exhaust rumble of the V8 is something unmistakable. This is the latest generation of the M5, the previous version of which has been discontinued after the new 5 series was launched in India last year. The BMW M5 is available only in one fully loaded trim with 19 inch alloys, M-package bumpers as well as the rear splitter.
Coming from a luxury car manufacturer’s production line, the new M5 features premium leather upholstery, separate-zone climate control for all four passengers, HUD, a panoramic sunroof and everything that gets adjusted by just a flick of a switch. Along with the sporty front seats, heads-up display, gesture control and dynamic dampers, the new M5 gets a meaty M Sport steering wheel.
