Imperial Blue Brilliant Effect
Since its inception in 1984 Amsterdan Motor Show, BMW M5 has been the benchmark of all the super sedans. The latest facelift of M5 has a huge legacy to live up to, and M5 does it tremendously. Never before has a superfast saloon been replaced by a facelift sporting lesser cylinder count, and never before has a sedan shunned its trademark huge, normally aspirated pumping for a lesser count turbocharged engine with “bluemotion” chips. Never, till now. Keeping the environmental aspects in mind, BMW M5 has given up on its V10 power for lesser count dynamics with turbocharging, the first step towards a more responsible future.
Defining the newly developed BMW M5 just as fast would do injustice with its superior efficiency and outstanding performance. This amazing sedan is employed with 4.4-litre V8 8-cylinder petrol engine, which produces the maximum power output measuring as 560 hp in between 6000 to 7000 rpm, and the peak torque generated as 680 Nm in between 1500 to 5750 rotations. Coupled with M Servotronic transmission which adapts steering power and resistance inline based on your driving speed, this uber-stylish sedan takes just about 4.3 seconds to acquire the speed mark of 0 to 100 km/h, while the top speed stands electronically limited at 250 km/h. With the latest facelift, the fuel consumption has taken an uphill turn as well. This amazing car delivers the fair mileage of 9.9 L/100km with CO2 emission as low as 232 g/km.
The newly designed BMW M5 stands out with its appealing body style and aggressive bumpers on both the ends. Coming to its front profile, consisting twin-slat kidney grille with chrome finish, stylish pair of headlamps and highly impressive bonnet with BMW insigna. The discreet rear mounted spoiler and gills at the upper front fenders, enhances its appeal effectively. The speedster moves on 19-inch alloy wheels, comprising the tyre size 265/40 R19 for the front wheels and 295/35 R19 for the rear wheels, reducing the unsprung weight of the vehicle. Its elegant athlete body uses the highest standards as yardstick. Its specific dimensions measures as 4910mm x 1891mm x 1467mm (L x W x H) and the wheelbase for this sedan stands at 2964 mm.
Inside, the latest BMW M5 sedan comprises a MotorSport atmosphere with a feel-good factor. The interior design of this stylish coupe is geared towards the tremendous performance, while enjoying every single kilometer. Embedded with number of controls at the cockpit blends perfectly with the classy design. The standard equipment inside this sedan includes advance air conditioning system to maintain the cabin’s temperature, 8.8-inch touchscreen for MMI Navigation coupled with Bang & Olufsen high-end Surround Sound system with 16 speakers increasing the excitement of the passengers and multi-function steering wheel mounted with various controls which adds the convenience for the driver.

Appointed with airbags system which keep its passenger protected in cases of fatality and collision. To give a highly excellent driving experience, the BMW M5 encloses M Carbon Ceramic Brake system and M compound brakes ensuring inimitable dynamics and performance. Accentuating its dynamic braking system, this sedan is provided with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD) and Electronic Stability Program (ESP) that improves vehicle’s stability effectively.

BMW M5 is simply a gigantic achievement, for the brand and for the world. In terms of performance there is simply no match for M5. However, M5 does fail in terms of practicality. For everyday use, M5 is not packed with the dynamics and fun of a saloon like Jaguar XFR.
