The BMW M5, an exquisite example of BMW’s luxury performance combination, makes 560 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque through its 4.4-liter twin turbo V8. Utilizing the same engine that powers the M6, the M5 offers immense luxury with an undeniable sense of power. The seven-speed dual clutch transmission offers blistering shifts, and thankfully the M5 also comes with the option of a six-speed manual.
The exterior is flowing, yet rigid, suggesting a simultaneously aggressive and humble appearance. Its luxuries do not outweigh its sporting aspects, however, with Dynamic Damper Control offering three driving modes: SPORT+, SPORT and COMFORT. These modes customize the shock absorbers’ firmness, allowing a drive that feels exactly how its driver is feeling. The interior is fully upholstered in fine leather with many personalization options, including a Bang & Olufsen surround sound package available. Expect to see more detailed features as the 2016 BMW M5 gets closer to its release.
