Just don't look down at the massive price.
Ever since getting a massive refresh, the BMW M5 has been one of the fastest sedan models on the market. The latest M5 is powered by a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 with 600 hp that goes out through an AWD system that can transfer all of the power to the rear wheels. Unfortunately, all of this performance comes at a price, $102,600. This is the first time that the M5 has started at over $100,000 before options. Most people may not be able to afford the massive price, but at least we can all sit down and build our dream M5 on the online configurator.
The first option that BMW gives is the color. There are 11 options available including seven no-cost colors including Black Sapphire Metallic, Singapore Gray Metallic, Snapper Rocks Blue Metallic, Marina Bay Blue Metallic, Donington Grey Metallic, Bluestone Metallic and Alpine White. There are also four BMW Individual colors that are available for $1,950. These colors include Rhodonite Silver Metallic, Almandine Brown Metallic, Champagne Quartz Metallic, Azurite Black Metallic. We suspect that people will be drawn to the bold shade of Snapper Rocks Blue, but we like the idea of a more stealthy M5, so we'd go with Donington Grey.
19-inch wheels come as standard, but for $1,300 you can option 20-inch M double-spoke wheels in silver and black, or all black. On the interior, customers can choose from three colors including Silverstone Merino Leather, Aragon Brown Merino Leather, and Black Merino Leather. All of these interior colors can be extended to a full leather interior for an additional $3,500. There are also three BMW Individual interiors that each cost $5,000 including Caramel/Black, Smoke White/Black and Tartufo. BMW will also offer Fineline Ridge Wood, Aluminum Carbon Structure Dark and Aluminum Carbon Structure interiors at no additional cost.
There are also two $1,080 BMW Individual options of Piano Black and Plum Brown Wood. Once you are done choosing colors, the options list isn't as long as some companies like Porsche. The Driving Assistance Plus Package is $1,700 and the Executive Package is $4,000. There are a few convenience and entertainment options such as a moonroof ($0), M Driver's Package ($2,500), Apple CarPlay Compatibility ($300), Rear-seat entertainment ($2,200) and Bowers and Wilkins Audio ($3,400). Finally, there is also the option of Carbon Brakes for $8,500 and night vision for $2,300. The M5 definitely isn't cheap, but it is still fun to dream.
