The BMW M5 is the most stunningly powerful and beautiful 5 Series model yet.
Claiming one of BMW’s most extensive specification lists and a carefully refined engine, the vehicle stands apart in its class and turns heads.
The new BMW M5 can be discovered at Jardine Motors Group in Buckinghamshire.
The safety specification of the M5 is comfortingly thorough and the model has received a full five-star rating from the independent body, Euro NCAP.
The Impact-Dependent airbags deploy only to the necessary level, supported by the Advanced Head Protection System, inertia reel seatbelts and an energy-absorbing chassis construction. In addition, the vehicle's crash sensors automatically cut fuel supply to the engine and release the central locking in the event of a serious collision.
Instantly recognisable as part of the manufacturer's 5 Series selection, the new M5 sports a strong, iconic face with a chrome-trimmed, black slat grille and sleek adaptive headlights. Four chromed tailpipes with exhaust turbochargers sit at either side of the car's M rear spoiler, finishing the streamlined shape that peaks with the shark-fin aerial at the top.The vehicle's interior equipment blends form and function in a luxurious package. Ambient lighting accents the cabin's Aluminium Trace interior trim, which is completed with Anthracite headlining and velour floor mats – and during the summer months, the expansive glass roof provides ample natural light. A large 10.2-inch colour display sits within the intuitive central console, showing data from the on-board computer and communications systems.
BMW provides a supercharged V8 engine for the M5, a growling heart that delivers exceptional performance without compromising on sound, economy or emissions.
The car storms to 60mph from a standing start in only 4.3 seconds, and can capably reach a 155mph maximum speed.
The engine system is paired with a seven-speed M double clutch transmission with innovative DRIVELOGIC, ensuring constant power to the car's rear wheels and seamless gear shifts.
