2018 BMW M5 Drifting – Video
The all-new BMW M5 represents the 6th generation and, like those that have come before, it delivers on these promises – and more. M xDrive, the new M-specific all-wheel-drive system, allows the M5 to reach new heights of dynamic performance and delivers poise in all driving situations. When the engine is first started, the all-new BMW M5 will be in all-wheel-drive mode (4WD) and then the driver is able to vary the handling characteristics by selecting various driving modes, including a rear-wheel-drive mode with no DSC. In this 2WD mode, the all-new BMW M5 offers drivers the opportunity to experience BMW’s traditional rear-wheel drive characteristics.
Under the hood of the all-new BMW M5 is the latest and most advanced version of the renowned 4.4-liter V8 engine featuring M TwinPower Turbo technology with an output increase from the previous generation of 40 hp and 53 lb-ft, this new engine develops 600 hp and 553 lb-ft of peak torque to promise explosive acceleration and formidable performance. The twin-turbo V8 unit propels the M5 via the new 8-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic and teams up with the M xDrive system to transfer all of the high-revving turbocharged engine’s might to the road, and allows a 0–60 mph acceleration run in a mere 3.2 seconds, making it the quickest and most agile to date.
BMW M5 Generations lined up featuring E28, E34, E39, E60, F10, F90.
