Built for pure driving pleasure, the fifth generation BMW M5 once again combines striking good looks, athletic performance and an impressive level of refinement to produce a luxury saloon that demands attention.
Every detail of the exterior has been designed to fulfil a purpose, from the rear tail-lights which feature the German manufacturer's Thin Blade technology, to the M kidney grille complete with M5 badging and large front vents to boost airflow. The flowing silhouette of the car seamlessly takes in the 20-inch alloys, aerodynamic wing mirrors and prominent side sills. There is further bold styling at the rear with the inclusion of chrome twin tailpipes, a new light cluster and spoiler.
Step inside the BMW M5 and you'll find a spacious and highly-refined interior designed to enhance the driving experience. The ergonomic moulding of the seats with their contoured side supports ensures comfort and stability during dynamic driving, while a high-quality finish is evident throughout the cabin. Staying in complete control is simple, thanks to the redesigned M multifunction leather steering wheel and a well laid-out instrument panel which provides continuous feedback.
The latest technology can be found throughout the new BMW M5 and everything from selecting M Drive cruise control to operating the car's telephone and audio system is intuitive, meaning you never have to break concentration. Air conditioning with four-zone control, digital radio, iDrive Touch Controller and a sat nav system all come fitted as standard.
Passing the M5 off as simply a comfortable saloon car is a mistake as, in line with previous models, its racing car genes have made a serious impact. The eight-cylinder petrol engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology can produce 560bhp and a huge 680Nm of torque, resulting in a 0-60mph time of under 4.3 seconds. An intricate and considerable cooling system is required to handle the power produced by the car, along with various driver aids including Active M differential, Dynamic Damper Control and pre-programmed driving modes capable of altering the car's stability control system.
