BMW M5 wins 2018 World Performance Car Award

Performance car enthusiasts from all over the world, at some point, have surely drooled over the BMW M5. And to top it up, the World Car Award committee has presented the 2018 World Performance Car Award to the BMW M5 at the New York Auto Show. Interestingly, this is the seventh time that a BMW has won a World Car award in their 14 year history.

To be eligible for this award, the candidates need to produce at least 2,000 units/year, must be overtly performance focused in nature, and be on sale in at least two continents in the period beginning 1 January 2017 and ending 31 May 2018. BMW has released an official statement for the media stating, “We at BMW are very excited to receive this award from the World Car of the Year organization. The BMW 5 Series has always played an important part of the BMW product portfolio. With this 6th generation BMW 5 Series we are able to offer our customers a broad range of variants ranging from the extremely efficient BMW 530e plug-in hybrid, all the way to the BMW M5, which is the quickest BMW ever built, reaching 0-60 in under 3.2 seconds.”

The M5 was among the 11 cars from all over the globe that participated for this award. It further went on to be shortlisted along with the Honda Civic Type R and the Lexus LC 500 before bagging the award. Powered by a twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine, the BMW M5 is regarded as one of the fastest saloons in the world. The 4.4-litre V8 of the M5 pumps out the highest ever figures - around 600bhp of power and 750Nm of torque that sends power directly to the rear wheels only. The power is transmitted through a bespoke eight-speed torque converter from ZF.
