2012 Auto Expo - BMW Launches the new M5!


The M5 badge has generally meant great driving dynamics and maybe some extra power over the regular 5 series, but with the coming of the F10 (internal code name) M5, that has gone for a toss!

The flagship of the 5 series range, priced at Rs. 97.9 Lakh, now makes a completely bonkers 552 bhp of peak power from a 4.4 litre twin-turbo V8 engine. If those stats are not enough here’s a look at the performance numbers of the new car. 0-100 kph time of 4.4 seconds, 0-200 kph in only 13 seconds heading towards a top speed of 250 kph (300 kph if you’re insane enough to order the M pack!) .

With vitals like that, the new M5 is decidedly in supercar territory.
