At the IAA Frankfurt 2011, he was first presented to the audience. We have the technical details and show the video to see how he was tested in the far north. The most successful high-performance sedan in the premium segment is already in its fifth generation. With the new BMW M5 also experienced a new engine its world premiere: the high-revving 4.4-liter V8 engine with M twin-turbo technology, zylinderbankübergreifendem exhaust manifold, fuel injection, “High Precision Injection” and fully variable valve control Valvetronic. It delivers 560 hp at 7,000 rpm between 6000 and and has a torque of 680 Nm at 1,500 rpm.



This propels the new BMW M5 in 4.4 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h and creates the 200 km / h mark after 13.0 seconds. Top speed is limited in the basic model at 250 km / hr. With the optional Driver’s Package M it reaches 305 km / h. The average consumption (in the EU test cycle) is at frugal 9.9 l/100 km. The engine power increased over the previous model by ten percent, the torque by 30 percent, but the fuel consumption dropped by 30 percent. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a 7-speed M Double Clutch Transmission (Drive Logic) with automatic gear selection optimized traction, launch control, low-speed assistance and automatic parking mode is activated.
