Ever since its unveiling back in October last year, the all-new 2017 BMW 5-Series has been filling the headlines of every auto magazine all around the world, with all the eyes being focused on the top of the line M550i.
The high-end model has recently popped-up on the web in a new video, which highlights the impressive acceleration it comes with, achieved thanks to the impressive engine and top speed.
Besides the exquisite features at the exterior, which show us an aggressive design, while adding the latest gadgetries inside, the M550i top variant from 5-Series is even more impressive in the engine department.
In comes with an M Performance 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, specially tweaked with High-Performance injection system, Valvetronic valve lift, or Double VANOS variable cam timing, all of which make it churn out a pure 456 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque, the latter one being achieved at just 1,800 rpm.
The entire powertrain is hooked to a high-performance eight-speed automatic Sport Steptronic transmission, which sends the power to all four axles via the car`s xDrive system.
As seen in the video below, the BMW M550i allows a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 4.0 seconds, at a top speed which is electronically limited to 250 km/h. In that matter, the M550i can easily stand side-by-side the M5 Jahre Edition, which runs the same straight line in a mind-blowing 3.9 seconds.
