If you have wondered what the latest M5 is capable of, our friends at AutoTopNL decided to hit the Autobahn with the latest beast from Bavaria. The BMW F90 Series M5 was unveiled in 2017, based on the G30 version of the 5 Series Sedan. While the base model 5 Series is available with four-cylinder and straight six turbocharged power, the M5 offers 591 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque.
If you opt for the Competition Package, you will have 617 hp and the same torque. The kicker is that that immense level of torque is available from 1,800 to 5,800 rpm. The body is 1/4″ lower and is available with AWD for the first time. It was this model BMW used to set new records for continuous drifting records a few months ago. The advanced aluminum & high strength steel space frame of the 7 series was scaled down, and it allows this M5 to be 88 lbs lighter than its predecessor (Even with AWD). Top speed is limited to 190 mph, so we feel like that needs to be verified on film. If you want the rush of the latest M5, click the link below and stay with us for all your BMW footage.
