BMW M5 Officially Arrives with 600 HP and AWD

2018 BMW M5 Leaked 3 830x467

"The new BMW M5 is a stunning car- With enormous power combined with gorgeous design, our players are going to love getting behind the wheel of the new M5". BMW's new version of its xDrive all-wheel drive system features a rear bias, leaving the front wheels to pick up the slack only if the rear tires can't handle any more.

Naturally with this much power, all four wheels are engaged with BMW's new M xDrive.

First out the gate will be the 2018 BMW M5 First Edition, with just 50 of the 400 total cars headed to the US.

The driver can also choose from Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus modes for the Variable Damper Control (VDC) system - which has M-specific tuning - and the M Servotronic steering. Indeed, the front wheels are only given power when those at the rear aren't able to put any more torque down effectively. That, the traction and the higher performance will collectively knock about a second off the 0-100km/h time, which now stands at 4.2 seconds.

The new M5 is based on the current G30-generation 5 Series, but will arrive in the market wearing the development number F90.




Like its predecessors, the new BMW M5 gets its own distinctive visuals that blend form and function. Top speed, when equipped with the optional M Driver's Package, is 189 miles per hour. Need for Speed Payback players will be among the first to experience the new M xDrive all-wheel drive as they tear through the city streets and diverse landscape of Fortune Valley this Fall. You've probably also noticed the two red buttons on the steering wheel too: Those allow you to preset two driving modes. A new M shifter will debut on the M5, along with new shift paddles. Also new is the rear diffuser.

Visually, the 2018 M5 is as expected - it's essentially a standard 5 Series but with larger wheels and more aggressive styling. With blue-painted six-piston fixed callipers at the front and single-piston floating callipers at the rear, plus perforated, inner-vented brake discs all round, the M compound brakes have the speed-shedding power to befit the car's dynamic potency.

Suspension is double-wishbone front and five-link rear with three-mode adaptive dampers controlling 19-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin's latest Pilot Sport 4S tyres measuring 275/40 and 285/40 rear, however we'd be amazed if 20s weren't standard in Australia. The BMW M5 First Edition has exclusive Frozen Dark Red Metallic paintwork and includes BMW Individual high-gloss Shadow Line trim.

According to BMW, the M5 will available with all of the safety and driver assistance equipment found in the rest of the 5 Series range, meaning autonomous emergency braking and adaptive cruise control are certainties.

Cabin upgrades will extend to piano black finishes, M multifunction seats, "Smoke White" full-leather upholstery with red stitching and an individually-numbered build plate.
