Please BMW, make our day
The BMW M5 is one of the most renown sport sedans in the world, and arguably carries more brand weight than rivals such as the Mercedes-AMG E63. And the new one has arrived on the scene rather quickly. Last month, we reported on the 2021 BMW 5 Series facelift, and BMW has wasted no time bringing those same updates to the M5. These improvements include exterior bits such as a larger kidney grille and redesigned front and rear bumpers. This makes the M5 look more badass than ever, and we're glad that it has been saved from whatever happened to the 2021 BMW 4 Series.
So it is clear that we're big fans of the M5, but what would make us love it even more? A station wagon version of course! Instagram user j.b.cars has revealed a render of an F90 M5, and it looks simply awesome.
The M5 has appeared in wagon form before, with classics such as the mouthwatering e34 M5 being our favorite, and who can ever forget the insane E61 wagon, powered by that glorious V10 engine, but the current generation car won't be made available in this body style any time soon. Markus Flasch, head of BMW's motorsport-bred M division said last year that the F90 M5 would never be made into a wagon.
"Touring estates are not part of our M plan. If I asked customers in Austria, Switzerland or Germany they would probably give it the thumbs-up, but we are a global company and we have so many things to deal with on the powertrain side that we don't go into products like this. This is what the SUVs are for." he said.
That won't stop us from dreaming about an M5 with over 600 horsepower, a zero to sixty time of under four seconds, and the ability to carry three dogs, a set of golf clubs and enough baggage for a long weekend away.
The rendering we see here features the same updated looks of the 2021 M5 but gets the obvious extension in the rear. We have to admit that it looks completely natural, and an official offering wouldn't stray too far from this design. Are you listening BMW?
