FINAL DEVELOPMENT PROCESS.
The prototypes are carefully disguised, but they cannot conceal their high-performance character. The new high-performance sedan from BMW M GmbH is now completing its test drives on public roads, BMW Group proving grounds and racetracks around the world. The broad driving dynamics spectrum of the iconic M model, ranging from supreme track performance to uncompromising long-distance comfort, remains a key feature of the BMW M5's DNA.
NEW DRIVE, M TYPICAL PERFORMANCE.
The new BMW M5 Sedan will feature a completely newly developed partially electrified drive system. What remains are the M specific performance characteristics as well as the precisely tuned chassis technology refined with innovative systems facilitate driving dynamics and agility at a level unique in this vehicle class. In short, a typical BMW M5.
We are now also installing a hybrid drive system with typical M performance in other high-performance cars.
HISTORY OF THE BMW M5.
For almost 40 years now, the BMW M5 has been the benchmark for driving dynamics, agility and precision in the high-performance sedan segment. Evolutionary progress, development know-how from racing and pioneering innovations in the areas of drive, suspension, aerodynamics and lightweight construction have shaped the history of the BMW M5. Engines with six, eight and ten cylinders, M TwinPower Turbo technology and high-revving characteristics, the compound brake system with M Carbon ceramic brakes and M xDrive four-wheel drive are just some of the technological milestones with which this model has repeatedly redefined top performance in a sedan that is unconditionally suitable for everyday use. The seventh generation of the BMW M5 Sedan takes up on this – with fascinating innovations for an even more intense performance experience.
