Video: Additional BMW M5 Details Released

M Performance

As promised, BMW has released additional details and photos of their latest F10 M5. Many of these details we already knew, but now the German automaker has made them official. It is powered by a 4.4-liter twin-scroll twin-turbo V8 with direct injection and variable valvetrain and produces 560hp and 502 lb-ft of torque. It's mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with launch control. Although it hasn't been officially announced, a six-speed manual will also be likely.

Performance is also improved with a 0 to 60 mph time of 4.4 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph. However, top speed increases to 190 mph when choosing the optional M Driver's Package. Compared to the previous M5, the new car uses less fuel and emits less carbon thanks to features such as regenerative braking and stop-start ignition. The iDrive system has also been downplayed, with the driver now having two buttons on the steering wheel that allow for pre-programming things such as acceleration response, chassis control, and head-up display at the simple push of a button.
