As we announced several times in our articles, BMW scheduled the world premiere of the new BMW M5 for the Frankfurt Motor Show which takes places these days. It is true that we already know almost all about the high-performance M version of the new 5 Series generation but we can’t ignore its premiere in Germany. Under the bonnet, the new BMW M5, codenamed F10, packs a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine which is also available for the BMW X5 M and X6 M.
The total output of the new M5 is rated at 560 horsepower and 680 Nm of torque at 1,500 rpm, enough resources for a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 4,4 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h.
Impressive fuel efficiency is also available thanks to BMW’s fuel-saving technologies which improve the figures by around 30%. This means that the 560HP V8 engine will return an average fuel consumption of only 9,9 liters/100 km, decent figures for a high-performance model.
An eight-speed M dual-clutch transmission directs the power to the rear wheels while the M Driver’s Package will get rid of the 250 km/h limitation and will provide a top speed of 305 km/h.
