New BMW M5 Rolls Out With 600 HP, M-Tuned AWD

BMW M5 pics go public

The sixth-generation BMW M5 has staked its claim for the title of best super-sedan in the world, with the latest M model combining increased engine outputs with a new torque-convertor automatic transmission and a trick all-wheel-drive system. Based on BMW's conventional intelligent AWD package, this performance-oriented/rear-biased alternative also features a transfer case and an Active M Differential but has unique software that fully integrates the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC).

BMW took a different approach for an unveil this week, when it teamed up with EA to announce the all-new BMW M5, which will appear in Need for Speed Payback. Here, the driver can choose from three configurations up to and including pure rear-wheel drive (2WD).

It's already common knowledge that the new M5 will offer carbon-ceramic brakes, all-wheel drive and the 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 fettled for 455kW/750Nm, coupled to an eight-speed automatic transmission, rather than the dual-clutch gearbox of the current vehicle. "With enormous power combined with gorgeous design, our players are going to love getting behind the wheel of the new M5". 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. It has a 189 miles per hour top speed with optional M Driver's Package. The exhaust system's quartet of tailpipes are a visual pointer to the power generated by the BMW M5 and also lay on a suitably sporting soundtrack for the job in hand, courtesy of their flap control system.

Despite weighing a tad more kilos and using a modified version of the exact same engine as its F10 predecessor, the all-new M5 manages to outgun it from just about every technical angle. The driver can use a button to adjust the engine sound as desired.

Stopping power is handled by M compound brakes with blue-painted six-piston callipers up front and single-piston floating rotors at the rear. These extend into the extremely lightweight carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) roof - a standard feature of the new M5.

Finished in "Orbit Grey", the M5's standard 19-inch five-double-spoke alloy wheels are shod with 275/40 and 285/40 tyres at the front and rear respectively. Occupants are treated to Merino leather upholstery, with the driver and front passenger getting M sports seats with electric adjustment, heating, and embossed M logos on the head restraints.

From launch, the M5 is set to be offered in special First Edition guise, which will be limited to 400 units globally. Available as an option are larger 20-inch wheels with the same width. All will be feature exclusive Frozen Dark Red Metallic paint and extended BMW Individual high-gloss Shadow Line trim that sees the grille, M fender gills and quad exhaust outlets rendered in high-gloss black. Red elements continue through the M-specific shift lever.
