2012 BMW M5


New BMW M5 is poised to build on the tradition of its predecessors and once again redefine the performance experience available in a 4-door car. Displaying the conceptual harmony, state of the art technology and astonishingly dynamic handling for which BMW M cars have become renowned, fifth generation BMW M5 stirs the passion of keen drivers for top performance and blends it, in inimitable style, with the universal qualities of a top-class premium saloon. Most powerful engine ever fitted in a series produced model from BMW M GmbH, innovative Active M Differential which optimises power transfer to the rear wheels and model-specific chassis technology developed on the back of extensive racing expertise all secure the BMW M5 a dominant position in the high performance saloon market.

Under the bonnet of the new BMW M5 lies a newly developed, high revving V8 engine with M Twin Power Turbo, maximum output of 560 hp at 6,000-7,000 rpm and peak torque of 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) between 1,500 and 5,750 rpm. Instantaneous power delivery and sustained thrust familiar from M cars are the key to acceleration of 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds. Average fuel consumption in the EU test cycle stands at 9.9L per 100 kilometres / 28.5 mpg imp. While output has increased by around 10 percent and maximum torque is up by more than 30 per cent, the new BMW M5 burns over 30 percent less fuel than its predecessor.
