V8 bi-turbo unit of the BMW M5 F10 is taken from the X5 and X6M models and develops 555 hp on the two SUVs, but the power that this engine was optimized in the case of M5 is still secret. Torque of model will also be higher and the speed range that will be available will be really impressive element of this model. Thus, the V8 bi-turbo propeller of the M5 F10 will provide maximum torque starting with 1500 rpm and torque value is located around 670 Nm.
M5 F10 prototypes tested by BMW engineers at Nurburgring and on the roads are designed to improve active aerodynamics of these models and to test their cooling system. Durability, engine cooling and drivetrain are the main elements of BMW’s strategy for the new M5 F10. The new M5 will be equipped with an upgraded version of the DCT transmission with seven-speed fitted to the current M3 and also was present on the unique edition M5 CSL E60. Active aerodynamics of this model involves temporary closure and sometimes partial of the front grille and of the cooling intakes in the moments when the engine is cold, and during light loads.
Mass and center of gravity of the BMW M5 F10 will be reduced through a carbon cap and a trunk cap built all carbon. BMW built only those components of carbon because they are less subject to potential impacts and German manufacturer wants to protect their clients of expensive acquisitions in case of an accident. Hybrid powertrain system won’t be an option for the BMW M5 because it increases the mass of this performance model with over 10 kilograms, something forbidden by BMW engineers.
MacPherson front deck will be replaced by a double arm system, while the rear axle gets a multi-link suspension. Active dampers will complement the suspension of the M5 F10, making it possible to adjust the response to the desires of the driver and road conditions. This time, the dampers will be part shared with M5′s chassis, which benefits a new traction control system, along with an improved stability control system. Direction of the BMW M5 F10 will be 100% electric, and the Biermann system fitted to this model is already at the third generation and offers similar level of response to those of a traditional hydraulic system.
