New seventh generation BMW M5 Saloon

BMW M5 Saloon

The BMW M5 is powering into a new era. With 40 years of history under its belt, the legendary high-performance saloon from BMW M GmbH is entering its seventh generation with an electrified drive system for the first time. The model-specific M HYBRID system gives the new BMW M5 (electric power and fuel consumption, weighted, combined: 166.2 – 176.6 mpg and 25.5 – 25.0 kWh/ 62 miles according to WLTP; CO2 emissions, weighted, combined: 39 – 37 g/km as per WLTP; fuel consumption with discharged battery: 27.4 – 27.7 mpg; CO2 classes: weighted, combined B, with discharged battery G) a maximum output of 727 hp and a peak torque of 1,000 Nm. The combination of a high-revving V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology and an electric motor, plus power transfer courtesy of an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission and M xDrive all-wheel drive, enables acceleration of 0 to 62 mph in 3.5 seconds.

The imposing power delivery and emotionally engaging performance experience served up by the new BMW M5 are accompanied by a new interpretation of the high-performance car design for which M is renowned. Prominent wheel arch and side skirt extensions, the sculptural front apron and model-specific surfacing around the C-pillar – including an embossed “M5” logo for the Hofmeister kink – give the car an athletic appearance that helps to differentiate it more clearly than ever from the BMW 5 Series Saloon. At the same time, an unusually high proportion of surfaces painted in body colour create a sleek appearance with stylish references to its superior dynamic abilities.

The exterior design – like the ambience of the luxurious interior, which is enhanced with M-specific features – accentuates the multi-layered character of the new BMW M5. Its sense of poise and assurance is fuelled by vast reserves of power that can be summoned at any time. Kept discreetly in reserve during relaxed, electric-only cruises, this performance comes to the fore as the BMW M5 reveals the “sport saloon” side to its personality over longer distances – and is unleashed in full on the track.

The M HYBRID system, power transmission and chassis technology are tuned to give the M5 specific performance characteristics, ensuring transverse and longitudinal dynamics unparalleled in this market segment. Together with its similarly outstanding elasticity, the new BMW M5 takes M performance to a new level.

rder books open today, priced from £110,500 RRP. World Premiere of the all-new M5 at Goodwood Festival of Speed in July 2024 and UK customer deliveries start in November 2024.
