    We knew that the new generation of the BMW M5 would be powerful, and it is now the confirmation.

    Powerful, this is the least we can say. The manufacturer of Munich has revealed some specifications of this new M5 2018, and they have something to make you drool for any amateur performance. The bi-turbo V8 4.4-liter of the new M5 will develop a cavalry simply senseless to 600 horses and 553 pound-feet of torque.

    It is enough to pass a car with a German from 0 to 100 km/h in 3,4 small seconds, with a maximum advertised speed at 304 km/h. Yes, 304 km/h!

    These performances are mind blowing are of course made possible thanks to the engine power of the vehicle, but also by a substantial reduction of its weight, courtesy of an increased use of carbon fiber and the exhaust system redesigned.

    To manage all this power, the new BMW M5 will appeal to a automatic transmission eight-speed Steptronic. In all the documentation currently available about the vehicle, BMW does not make the slightest mention of a variant with a manual transmission. There are a few that are likely to be disappointed…

    The train full makes its appearance

    For 2018, BMW broke with tradition by trading a first-M5 with four-wheel drive. Not to disappoint the purists, BMW has added a feature that allows you to drop the wheel to the full for that the power is sent to the rear wheels.

    At the push of a button, the BMW M5 can therefore pass from one car to four-wheel drive car to rear wheel drive. Everyone is a winner!

    The BMW M5, 2018 will arrive at dealers in the province over the next few months. Its price has not been unveiled… and it may be more like it!
