THE DRIVE & ENGINE
Powered by the legendary, and much revered 4.4 all aluminium, 90 degree V8. Fed by two, twin scroll Honeywell turbo chargers, direct injection, running at up to 200 bar of pressure, Valvetronic variable valve lift + double vanos camshaft which improves both fuel efficiency and performance. Developing a potential 552 bhp between 6000 /7000 rpm and reving up to 7200 rpm, 10% up on previous V10 model. This produces 502lbs ft of torque between 1500 /5750 rpm, again an increase, up by 30%. A larger 80 litre fuel tank allows for longer touring, the V8 now capable of approx. 300+ mile range, at 28 mpg. Electro-hydraulic power steering, double wish-bone front and multi-link rear suspension, coupled with progressive springs and adjustable dampers. The driving experience is aurally enhanced by the exhaust soundtrack, brutal, raw and aggressive with power available in spades. 0-62 can be crushed in 4.3 secs with a limited top speed of 155 mph. All this power is managed via a seven speed dual clutch MDCT transmission. There is no experience of turbo-lag, the M5 active diff transmits power efficiently with added influence of throttle steer.
A four door, “Power Saloon” to carry five adults in sublime comfort, while experiencing heroic performance and capabilities.
In our opinion, not to be missed.
