BMW M5: Here It Is, With 600 HP and All-Wheel Drive

The M5's all-wheel drive system is called M xDrive, and it allows for fully variable torque distribution between the front and rear axles.

The 2WD mode disengages the front axle altogether, as well as the stability control system, offering the type of cornering ability experienced in previous M5s.

The 2018 BMW M5 has leaked online in a video published by a Chinese website, showing full details of the new M5 inside and out ahead of its official debut.

As a result, drivers have access to five different configurations to choose from based on combinations of the DSC modes (DSC on, MDM, DSC off) and M xDrive modes (4WD, 4WD Sport, 2WD). Whenever we see a vehicle with almost identical front and rear tire width and all-wheel-drive we usually start thinking about terminal understeer, but we're also pretty sure that BMW M engineers know what they're doing. That said, the M5 F90's 4.4-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 develops the same amount of horsepower and 750 Nm (553.2 lb-ft) of torque. The sedan now requires just 3.4 seconds to reach that speed, rather than 4.2 seconds previously.

BMW's new super sedan passes 200km/h in just 11.1sec on its way to a limited 250km/h top speed, which can be increased to 305km/h when the M Driver's Package is optioned. 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. Need for Speed Payback players will be among the first to experience the new M xDrive all-wheel drive as they tear through the city streets and diverse landscape of Fortune Valley this Fall. That's an increase of 40 horsepower and 53 lb. -ft. compared to the outgoing M5, and that power band is meatier - peak power arrives from 5,700 to 6,600 RPM, and peak torque works its magic between 1,800 and 5,700 RPM. If that's not enough stopping power for you, M carbon ceramic brakes with gold-finished calipers and larger front rotors are available. BMW M engineers have also added a new carbon fiber reinforced plastic roof to cut weight even further on the new M5.

Extended Merino leather is standard, as are sports seats with integral head restraints and thicker side bolsters.

The best press release quote I've read in some time comes from BMW M Division president Frank van Meel, who says: "The M is not only synonymous for the world's most powerful letter, but has also become a synonym worldwide for the prototype of the Ultimate Driving Machine". 20-inch items can be specified as an option (front: 275/35 R 20 tyres on 9.5 x 20 rims, rear: 285/35 R 20 tyres on 10.5 x 20 rims). It will be exclusively appointed and features BMW Individual Frozen Dark Red Metallic paintwork (seen in the gallery above) and will cost an additional €19,500 ($23,046 USD) over the standard model. Red elements continue through the M-specific shift lever.
