New BMW M5 Leaked

These figures are up 18kW/70Nm on its predecessor in standard form, while the F10-series "30 Jahre" and "Competition Edition" versions matched the latest M5's power figure but fell 50Nm short of its torque output.

If you didn't notice the quad-outlet exhausts enveloped by a chunky diffuser at the back, or the trademark side gills in the front guards with M5 badges, or the bespoke 19-inch wheels measuring 9.5 inches wide on the front and 10.5 inches on the back (275/40 and 285/40 tyres), you'll probably notice the optional matte maroon paint colour on this show vehicle.

Fortunately, we don't have long to wait for the juicy details: all should be revealed later today...

2018 bmw m5 3

As previously reported, drifters will be pleased to know this new arrangement comes with three modes - 4WD, 4WD Sport and 2WD - which allow the rear wheels varying degrees of slip. This new M5 is the first M series to feature xDrive all-wheel-drive system and Need For Speed: Payback players will be some of the first people to get behind the wheel of the 2018 BMW M5 when the game releases on November 10th. The other major development is the switch to a torque converter automatic gearbox, the previous generation having used the M DCT twin-clutch solution. Top speed, when equipped with the optional M Driver's Package, is 189 miles per hour. Sixty miles per hour comes up in 3.2 seconds and 124 miles per hour arrives in 11.1.

Carbon ceramic brakes are optional, and they save 50 lbs of unsprung weight over the standard units. A special edition of the outgoing M5, sold in extremely limited quantities in the USA, produced almost the same power.

Much of its efficiency is owing to a reduction in kerb weight by 15kg to 1855kg, thanks to the inclusion of a carbon-fibre reinforced plastic roof panel and a modified lightweight exhaust system. Yes, the M5 offers a setting that disconnects the front axle entirely, turning it into a insane drift machine. Like the 5 Series, the M5 features a wide central screen with gesture control. BMW Australia has already expressed interest in securing a sample of these vehicles for the local market. First Editions roll on 20-inch seven-double-spoke black wheels. There's also traditional-style gauges in the digital instrument cluster, lots of leather, and a special M gear lever and pedals.
