BMW have released official pictures of their new BMW M5 and the latest is better than ever. There have been a lot of rumors flying around about the performance figures of the new BMW M5 but we can now confirm these important figures. The M5 engine is a twin turbo 4.4 litre V8 which produces 552bhp which is an increase of 10% against the old BMW M5, while the Torque value has increased by 30% to 680Nm of torque. Fuel consumption has also been improved by 30% as the new M5 manages to do 28.5mpg while only producing 232g/km of Co2 this is largely down to brake energy regeneration and BMWs stop-start system.
The Performance of the BMW is incredible with a 0-62mph time of just 4.4 seconds which will give most Porsches and Ferraris a run for their money, while 0-124mph takes just 13 seconds but the top speed is limited to 155mph, but if you feel as though 155mph is not fast enough then you can as an option Specify BMW M Driver's Package which will increase the top end speed to 190mph. The BMW M5 sends all its power to the rear wheels via a seven speed double clutch paddle shift gearbox which also features a launch mode to help maximise acceleration. For driving around town BMW have fitted there Low Speed Assistance function which keeps the car moving slowly through stop start traffic with just a light press on the accelerator pedal.
BMW have fitted a host of tech to the new BMW M5 chassis which will not only improve the handling of the M5 but also make it easier to customise to suit all types of driving styles. The Tech on the new BMW M5 enables you to have a total of 243 different driving combination settings, this is achieved by systems such as electronically controlled dampers, adjustable steering weight, stability control system with M Dynamic mode and race specification brakes. You can adjust all 5 manually with each of the following having 3 setting each, engine mapping, steering response, gearbox shift time, stability control and damper choices.
The BMW M5 has always been a little understated when it comes to styling but the new BMW M5 is a little bit more daring when it comes to performance styling, as the new M5 has a much more pronounced front bumper which features extra large air intakes to help with cooling the engine and front brakes. Flared wheel arches that house 19 inch alloy wheels are notably larger compared to the old M5 while at the rear the M5 has been fitted with a diffuser which sits between two twin exhausts. The BMW M5 also features the familiar side gills with indicators built in to complete the pumped up look of the exterior. Inside the BMW M5 you will find the same high quality materials found in the standard 5 Series, but the M5 gets the M-specific instrument panel with a leather clad centre console and the headrests on the sport seats feature the famous BMW M badge. Other features and equipment include a heads up driver display, a 10.2 inch colour screen with Smartphone compatibility so you can even check Facebook and Twitter from your car.
