As we are just getting familiar with the new 5 Series Sedan BMW is announcing the most eagerly awaited version of its mid-size executive car.
The next generation of BMW M5 will take the “horsepower wars” to a next level.
The 2012 BMW M5 will come to the game with a different engine comparing to the last, no longer do you get a 5 liter V10 engine that puts out 507 horsepower but what you get instead will be a 4.4 liter V8 engine with twin turbocharging. This engine isn’t entirely new as it is available on the X5M and X6M already but in the F10 BMW M5 it will be better.
For starters, the output will go up to 570 horsepower and 480 lbs/ft of torque thus enabling it to get from 0 to 60 mph in about 4.4 seconds, 0.3 seconds faster than the previous model, faster then the E63 AMG Mercedes and faster than the Audi RS6. And then, there’s even more good news, the next model will be more fuel efficient and more environmentally friendly. Specifications set by BMW for the next generation of M5 state that this version should be 30% less of a pollution agent.
If these figures are achieved, the next BMW M5 will not only be faster than all it’s rivals but it will also be cleaner as well.
