Spy Video: 2018 F90 BMW M5 Goes for New Tests on the Ring
While some have already packed their test mules for some rough testing on the cold Sweden, others are still faithful to the old Ring track, to fully test their new prototypes.
The video below called “2018 BMW M5 F90 Spied Testing on the Nurburgring Nordschkeile” is showcasing the arrival of the new M5, but not before flexing its muscle on the famous German track.
We are looking here at two models which are showing their best while tackling the tight corners at high-speeds, with the new suspension being put to the final tests as well.
To cope with the sheer performance under the hood, the F90 BMW M5 must be fully packed with a muscular yet aerodynamic design, and the camouflaged models seen in the video below provide just that.
The new F90 BMW M5 is going to be extremely aerodynamic and provide the sportiest characteristics, lately seen on an M performance model. We are looking here at the new front and rear bumpers, now more aggressive, adding as well the rear-end with the twin-double pipes and flared wheel-arches. Also, the new model is going to be lighter as well, a fact that would lead to increase performance.
Once arriving on the market at the end of 2017 as a 2018 MY, the new M5 will be powered by an upgraded 4.4-liter TwinPower Turbo V8 engine, with at least 600 horsepower under the bonnet – we might as well expect 620 horsepower, which will position the model way above its competitors from Mercedes-Benz or Audi, which come for the moment with power ranging between 550 horsepower and 605 horsepower.
As far as the transmission goes, this will play a key role in the car`s performance figures, and rumors have it that it will come with a slightly revised M-dual-clutch gearbox as optional, while the manual would be standard in the US. Stay tuned for more details on the all-new 2018 F90 BMW M5!
