    BORN TO MASTER THE NÜRBURGRING: THE ALL-NEW BMW M5

    Dynamic and alluring both inside and out, the all-new BMW M5 is in a class of its own.


    Its Nürburgring-honed performance starts with the most powerful engine ever fitted into a series-produced BMW M model. The high-revving 560-hp M TwinPower Turbo V-8 generates 500 lb-ft of peak torque from 1500 to 5750 rpm. A new 7-speed M Double Clutch Transmission transfers every ounce of power to the road, for a lightning-fast 0-60 sprint.


    Inspired new BMW EfficientDynamics technologies, such as Auto Start-Stop function and Brake Energy Regeneration, make the M5 an impressive 25 percent more efficient than its predecessor.
