Powering from 0-62mph in only 3.4 seconds*, the BMW M5 is ready to move. What’s more, it integrates intense performance with the M xDrive all-wheel drive system and high-precision gear changes with the eight-speed M Steptronic transmission. Add to this the first ever carbon roof on a BMW M5 and there’s plenty to catch your eye.

Through combining the agility and precision of the standard drive with the smoothness and traction of all-wheel drive, M xDrive with Active M Differential allows for even more intense performance in the BMW M5.

M xDrive controls the torque distribution between the front and rear axle via a regulated clutch, engaging the front axle only when it senses that the back wheels have reached the absolute limit of their grip. In doing so, maximum driving dynamics are achieved on every road.

It's clear that the BMW M5 is derived from the same genes that created the rest of the M family, yet it is also a pioneer amongst the pack. Key to its weight loss from its predecessor is the addition of the new carbon roof; the first to ever be installed on an M5. Other distinctive M features include 20" M light alloy wheels style 706M, M Twin Tailpipes, striking M kidney grille with High-gloss Black double slats and M mirror caps with aerodynamic winglet.
