Excitingly and elegantly shaped. More powerful than ever. The new generation of the BMW M5 is a statement of supreme engineering skill and innovative driving intelligence. For hitherto unimagined dimensions of driving dynamics up to the limits. Full of state-of-the-art technologies that make the everyday business routine safer and more comfortable. The innovative all-wheel drive system M xDrive of the powerful all-new BMW M5 with its 600 hp (441 kW) engine turns the driver into the self-assured pilot of a high-performance sports saloon with unbelievable power, precision and agility – pure M driving pleasure on a new level.
BMW M5 with M xDrive (1):
Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 10.5
CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 241
The new BMW M5 is the uncompromising combination of elegant business saloon and systematically power-oriented supreme performance: large air inlets in the athletic front supply the M V8 high-performance engine with cooling air. The look created by the lines of the distinctive aluminium bonnet with two M specific swage lines is repeated in the contours of the roof made of very lightweight and tough carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP).
The discreet M rear spoiler supports the sporty and powerful appearance and is an important element of the overall aerodynamic concept. Form follows performance – consistently in every detail.

How do you translate the tremendous power of the all-new BMW M5 directly and precisely into maximum driving dynamics? With innovative technologies, inspired by motor racing.
The 8-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic features extremely short shifting times and numerous shifting options: from very athletic and dynamic to comfortable and fuel-efficient. The gears can also be shifted manually with the gear lever, or via gearshift paddles on the steering wheel.
The M Carbon ceramic brake delivers braking power more directly. It is non-corrosive, very resistant to abrasion, tolerates more heat and contributes to a lower vehicle weight, which has a positive impact on agility, dynamics and acceleration. Matt Gold-coloured brake callipers with the M designation make this special technical equipment visible from outside the car.
Dependent on conditions and usage, features specific to the materials used can lead to operational noises particularly in wet conditions just before the vehicle comes to a halt. The impact of moisture and road salt can cause the braking action to be equivalent to a conventional brake system. This can for a short time be experienced as a reduction in braking action and can be balanced out by greater pressure on the pedal where necessary.
Please consult your dealer regarding suitability and usage.
In every driving situation, M Servotronic delivers the right steering power, by adjusting to suit the current driving speed. In addition, it delivers a direct and precise steering feel at any speed. The system is specifically calibrated for the M line and offers three different settings that can be selected with the push of a button.
The Active M differential optimises traction and driving stability when changing lanes or accelerating out of a bend, when taking bends at high speeds or on different road surfaces. Traction is optimised with the help of an electronically operated device that reduces the difference in revolution speed between the rear wheels.
This is how breathtakingly fast the BMW M5 sprints from 0 to 200 km/h. In combination with the outstanding power of the M TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder engine, the superior traction of the all-wheel drive M xDrive produces acceleration values that had hitherto been reserved for super sports cars. For the sake of completeness, perhaps we should mention that the all-new BMW M5 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds.
The M sports exhaust system delivers a dynamic sound that can be modified via the integrated exhaust valve mechanism. The SPORT and SPORT+ programmes, which can be selected via the Driving dynamics buttons, are accentuated by an even more intense engine sound, while the comfort-oriented programme prioritises more discreet engine acoustics. In addition, the noise level can be lowered via the new sound control button.
The BMW M5 sets new standards in terms of connectivity and driver assistance. Regardless of whether you wish to organise appointments, call up e-mail or set new personal bests on the race track. The innovative operating concept, the multifunctional instrument cluster and the Head-Up Display impress with their supremely intuitive control, digital services and completely new M specific graphics.
Enabling you to record all the information relevant to driving in fractions of a second: from the shift, navigation and speed displays via the all-wheel drive mode to the display for your personally selected setup. Numerous intelligent assistance systems are at your side as a co-pilot whenever you wish.
