BMW M5 debuts with 600-hp and AWD

BMW M5 debuts with 600-hp and AWD”

"Take a look at the new BMW M5: its power output, torque and acceleration, the M specific all-wheel drive system M xDrive and its stunning design make our all-new toy the ideal feature for Need for Speed", said Frank van Meel, President BMW M Division.

Luxury carmaker BMW's next-generation M5 auto will be an all-wheel-drive with a powerful engine capable of producing roughly 600bhp, leaked reports suggested. Virtually every 5 Series suspension component was modified to M-spec levels-including the Variable Damping Control and multi-mode Servotronic electro-mechanical steering gear - to ensure superior dynamics and stability under all conditions. Also new is the rear diffuser. Indeed, the front wheels are only given power when those at the rear aren't able to put any more torque down effectively. "The new M xDrive developed by BMW M GmbH is the most engaging all-wheel-drive system yet to grace the high-performance segment and will be on display across various terrains in Need for Speed Payback". Thanks to this neat little trick, the sledgehammer sedan from Munich can hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.4 seconds, exactly like its biggest rival, the 2017 Mercedes-AMG E63 S. Top speed is limited to 155mph. 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.

However, the most drastic change is the addition of an M xDrive all-wheel-drive set-up for the first time, eschewing five generations of rear-wheel-drive traction.

Drivers can also press a button to reduce the exhaust sound from the M5 - ideal if you're travelling along quiet residential streets at night.

Since it's a 5 Series underneath, the 2018 BMW M5 remains quite the technological marvel. For the new sedan (left), the company replaces the standard 5 Series' front bumper with larger intakes for directing air to the cooling system and brakes. Six-piston front brakes with 15.5-inch rotors up front (and 15-inch rotors paired to floating calipers out back) haul the M5 to a stop, and carbon ceramic brakes are available.

China bans North Korean imports in line with United Nations sanctions
Using trade as a bargaining chip in dealing with China will backfire on the USA , the English-language China Daily said yesterday. Trump has requested similar inquiries on trade, but the reports haven't been delivered on deadline.

The new BMW M5 comes as standard with polished 19-inch light-alloy wheels (front: 9.5 x 19, rear: 10.5 x 19) in Orbit Grey and M-specific tyres (front: 275/40 R 19, rear: 285/40 R 19).

BMW says orders for the new M5 will start in September in Europe.

When it goes on sale in spring 2018, the M5 will initially be offered in a "First Edition" trim that adds a numbered plaque, 20-inch wheels, red paint and white leather.

Announced at Gamescom, the reveal marks the first time BMW has announced a new vehicle through a video game partnership. Inside, the cars have M multifunction seats, Piano Black appliques, and a plaque on the center console indicating its production number.
