2012 BMW M5 F10
The new BMW M5 includes an aggressive front bumper, aerodynamic side skirts and a new rear diffuser. It also features front fenders, a unique grille with black slates, adaptive xenon headlights with LED angel-eyes, a four-tailpipe sports exhaust system and huge 19" light alloy wheels.
The interior boasts Merino leather sport seats, a new instrument cluster and a multifunctional ///M steering wheel. There are two ///M buttons with pre-selected engine, transmission and suspension setups, so the driver is able to choose the settings immediately. Inside, there are also aluminium trace trim, an Anthracite headliner and a 10.2" iDrive display.
The M5 F10 also comes with a head-up display, night vision technology with pedestrian recognition, a lane change and departure warning system, a surround view camera and internet connectivity. All these features make the driving real pleasure and guarantees the safety of the passengers.
The power as you may suggest is staggering. A twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 with 560PS (412 kW) at 5750RPM and 680Nm(502 lb-ft) at just 1500RPM. It features M TwinPower Turbo technology, twin-scroll turbochargers, high-precision direct fuel injection, VALVETRONIC variable valve control and a cross-bank exhaust manifold. 0 to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds, 0 to 200 km/h in 13 seconds and top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph) electronically limited and 305 km/h (190 mph) with M Driver's Package. However, the fuel consumption is also amazing – 9.9 liters per 100 km on combined cycle (28.5 mpg) and CO2 emissions of 232 g/km.
The M5 F10 offers electronically controlled dampers with three modes - Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus. The M-specific Servotronic steering system, high-performance compound brakes and an Active M Differential make the driving a real pleasure.
The safety is provided by the DSC (Dynamic Stability Control) system, which operates via FlexRay high-speed data transfer technology, and constantly cross-checks the data collected by its sensors with the feedback from DSC. In other words, the car won't allow to suicide yourself.
