The fact that the new BMW M5 will be significantly stronger and faster than the current M5 already knew, but now we know exactly, at least, until the first hundred.
So, the 578 hp and 720 Nm of the imminent V8 twin-turbo 4.4-liter (more wiry with 71 hp and, look, 200 Nm than the current five-liter V10) will allow the bolide to reach the first 100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds from start – with 0.3 seconds faster than the current BMW M5. Besides, who would like the suppression of the limit speed system may exceed with 53 km/h the 250 km/h threshold.
And those are far from all the good news: thanks to weight reduction program and implementing KERS system (similar to that used in Formula 1), the future M5, which will be officially presented at the end of this year – will consume 30% less fuel than its predecessor (the estimated average fuel consumption of just 9.8 litres/100 km). A bad news may be that there won’t be any BMW M5 Touring version.
