5 things you need to know about the new BMW M5
We’ve examined Munich’s latest powerhouse sedan and put together five essential facts you need to know about the 2018 BMW M5.
It’s the most powerful M in history
BMW hasn’t released official specifications yet, but we’ve been told that the new M5 will produce around 450kW and 700Nm. That’s at least 40kW and 20Nm more powerful than the outgoing model.
It’s powered by the same 4.4-litre V8 twin-turbocharged engine in the F10 M5, however, the engine has been comprehensively overhauled with larger hot-vee turbochargers, increased turbo boost pressure, higher pressure fuel-injectors and a new exhaust system. We’ve also been told the large sedan will sprint 0-100km/h, with launch control, in 3.5sec or less.
