It has been 20 years the launch of the first BMW M5. After generations, more the 35,000 the BMW M5 still makes its position as the The all-new fourth generation M5 has the V10 engine to power a production

This new engine is mated to a SMG transmission. In the tradition of BMW M, the chassis has engineered to keep up with the while the exterior treatment is yet distinctive.

All new high-revving V10 engine

time BMW M introduces a new model, the of attention is rightly centred on lurks beneath the domed bulge. For the E60 M5 sedan due on sale in the answer is a high-revving ultra-powerful This engine shares than just its number of with the Formula 1 engine powers the BMW WilliamsF1 team.

forged in the heat of motorsport has the processes and components used in new powerhouse.

As you would expect BMW M, this high-performance normally engine generates enormous force over its entire range. The most powerful engine in the company’s history is along with other BMW engines on a highly flexible line at the BMW plant in Munich.

The BMW M V10 is the only high-revving power to be featured in a series-production car. The V10 boasts a cubic capacity of and produces a maximum output of 507 BHP kW) and a maximum torque of 520 Newton making the M5 the most powerful model in the BMW line-up.

The one-piece cylinder heads of the V10 engine are in banks. The V10 power unit four valves per cylinder, a BMW trait. All valve train are of low mass.

Thus, for example, the M feature for the first time flow-optimised 5 mm-shaft valves, valve tappets with valve play compensation and valve springs. All this in a considerable mass reduction, is a prerequisite for the realisation of the high-revving

The bi-VANOS variable valve featured in the new M5 engine ensures an charge cycle, thus to achieve extremely short times. This means in increased performance, an improved curve, optimum responsiveness, consumption and fewer emissions. to the bi-VANOS technology, intake and valves are always opened and at precisely the right moment.

The naturally aspirated engine ten flow-optimised intake trumpets to air from two intake plenums. cylinder has its own throttle, a feature of racing cars. All throttles are simultaneously and are electronically controlled in to make the engine highly in the lower speed range, as as to achieve an immediate response of the at the high end of the performance spectrum.

The MS S65 management system is the central behind the V10’s outstanding and emission data. With than 1,000 individual this engine management is unparalleled in its package density. Its are the most powerful currently for use in automobiles, as high engine and comprehensive management and control demand the utmost from system.

Receiving more 50 input signals, this calculates for each individual and for each individual cycle the ignition point, the ideal fill, the injection quantity and the point. At the same time system calculates and makes the adjustments for the optimum camshaft and the optimum position of the ten individual

7-Speed Sequential

The high-revving M5 the driver enjoyment quotient via a new gearbox optimised for split-second BMW M is the first manufacturer worldwide to a seven-speed sequential gearbox drivelogic function. Even highly refined than the six-speed transmission, the seven-speed SMG enables manual gear with ultra-short shifting as well as comfortable cruising to the automatic gear selection

The purpose of the additional seventh is to reduce engine speed and gaps.

The new seven-speed SMG gearbox gears to be changed using the gearshift lever or via paddles on the steering wheel. Compared to the SMG transmission, gear change are increased by 20 per cent. Thanks to the drivelogic function, the driver can from eleven gear options, which enable to adapt the SMG’s characteristics to very own style of motoring.

Ride Comfort Agility

of the M5 suspension is the all-aluminium suspension of the 5 Series, the kinematics of which adapted to the more powerful M5. The stiff body construction for the 5 Series and the large proportion of aluminium axle components and parts are ideal preconditions for optimum driving pleasure. features are supplemented by a well-balanced, 50:50 weight distribution on the and rear axles and, of the typical BMW rear wheel that keeps the steering free from drive

The suspension is mated to 19-inch with performance tires. power on the road is critical, so the M5 the Variable M differential lock. By monitoring and comparing the speed of the wheels, the Variable M differential can ensure that power to the drive wheel with the traction even in extreme situations.

Its benefits are particularly when accelerating out of a corner.

The Electronic Damper Control allows the driver to adjust the characteristics from sporty to by utilising a choice of three modes — comfort, and sport. The driver operates EDC via the button on the steering wheel or by of a push button adjacent to the SMG lever. The M5’s suspension features optimised DSC Driving Control.

The Dynamic Stability system in the M5 has been designed to its performance. Of course, the DSC can be deactivated at the of a button.

M Dynamic Mode is a unique feature in the achievement of dynamics and an awesome experience for the with racing ambitions. now a similar feature was found in the M3 CSL high-end racing machine and was as M Track Mode. This of Dynamic Stability Control for deployment in motor sport the M5 driver to push the car to the absolute of longitudinal and lateral acceleration at the of a button located on the steering

In this mode DSC is not activated the absolute limits have reached, thereby permitting a angle the driver can just cope with by means of countersteering.

To complement its performance the M5 is equipped with generously high performance brakes perforated compound brake The aluminum twin-piston brake have been designed for unsprung weight and maximum The wheels sport 374 x 36 mm brake at the front and 370 x 24 mm brake discs at the

In the tradition of BMW M, the exterior styling of the new M5 the wolf in sheep’s clothing The casual observer may not, at glance, recognize the M5’s potential. The less casual instantly will. The modified spoiler and rear apron are giveaways.
