Ultra performance cars from BMW continue with the arrival of a new M5 model promising massive firepower. Nomenclature for the series employs the alphabetical designation of M, as in muscle. The number 5 signifies BMW's mid-size 5-Series car based on a 550i sedan.
All of the thrust for new M5 stems from a 5.0-liter V10 that blows the doors off with 507 hp and massive torque through a seven-speed sequential manual gearbox (SMG) which charts both automatic and manual shift programs. BMW projects the zero-to-60 time for this new super car to clock around four seconds.
