About five days ago, Hans, the president of the M Flight Club uploaded a video with the new BMW M5 F10 on the highway while pulling the model to its limits. The video below is shot on Autobahn 62 which means that the driver has broken no traffic regulations but we still recommend to drive safely and consider that at high speeds, no matter what vehicle you drive, everything gets way more dangerous.
The new BMW M5 is powered by a 4.4-liter V8 unit with M TwinPower Turbo which delivers a total of 560 horsepower and 680 Nm of torque, enough resources for a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 4,4 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h.
The M5 model in question got rid of the speed limiter which lets the model to hit a top speed of 330 km/h. However, Hans managed to achieve a speed of ‘only’ 300 km/h due to the busy traffic.
