ENDURANCE TESTING WORLDWIDE.
The prototype is carefully disguised, but it cannot conceal its character as high-performance car. The future generation of the BMW M5 Touring has entered the practical phase of its series development process. The new high-performance model from BMW M is now completing its test drives on public roads, BMW Group proving grounds and racetracks around the world.
NEW DRIVE, M TYPICAL PERFORMANCE.
The M5 Touring will feature a completely newly developed partially electrified drive system. Its M typical 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. Thus, BMW M GmbH is steadily progressing on its path to electrification.
We are now also installing a hybrid drive system with typical M performance in other high-performance cars.
HISTORY OF THE BMW M5 TOURING.
For almost 40 years now, the BMW M5 has been the benchmark for driving dynamics, agility and precision in the high-performance sedan and touring 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 third generation of the BMW M5 Touring takes up on this – with fascinating innovations for an even more intense performance experience.
