Review : BMW M5 (2012)

The new M5 V10 says goodbye to the air and start to mount the same engine as the X5 and X6 M, a 4.4 eight-cylinder that produces 560 hp V-(and 680 Nm) and that for the first time in the history of this model will use two turbo-compressors (in this case double entry) to beat the performance of all its rivals. Among the elements that make possible such services include the exceptional power / weight ratio achieved with the increased presence of aluminum (3.3 pounds per horsepower), the Quick Start Launch Control system that offers the dual-clutch gearbox and a set Drivelogic saving Efficient Dynamics measures (such as start / stop and brake energy recovery) which adds a mode of transmission that favors the use of less fuel consumption.

And no doubt there has been successful. At least now, neither the E63 AMG Mercedes-Benz or a Porsche Panamera Turbo is able to offer more power, better acceleration and improved fuel consumption figure. BMW has literally surpassed all schemes achieving an acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.4 seconds and from 0 to 200 km / h in 13.0 seconds, with an approved mixed use which has been reduced drastically from 14, 8 liters of the previous generation to less than 10 liters (9.9 exactly). The maximum speed, which as usual is limited electronically to 250 km / h, can be increased up to 305 km / h with the Drivers package (just like on the X5 and X6 M).

Even the standard equipment, of course, a number of improvements, such as the introduction of modern elements (traffic sign recognition, night vision system, Internet connection, etc..), The adaptive lighting for xenon headlights iDrive to control or command data over a 10.2-inch screen.

The new M5 will allow the driver to adapt to any situation driving the car, and the possibilities are many. You can choose three modes for the automatic gearbox, sequential gearbox for the other two, three levels of suspension stiffness, different types of intervention for the stability control and limited slip differential and a number of alternatives to show the information through the Head-Up the display.
