Finding the perfect car for the daily basis is tough. It’s even tougher if you’re a true lover of cars, because the car’s enthusiast is always looking for the perfect car. Probably, the car that is closer to this flattery is the BMW M5.
The compelling features of this car make the M5 sedan one of completest cars of its segment. Blending extraordinary performance and handling, plus a refined and elegant shape that comes directly from Germany, we have to pay attention to it. The BMW M5 is the racing variant from the original 5 Series, featuring an aggressive performance with aesthetic pokes to deliver the true sensation of power and agility.
The M5 has an incredible comfortableness, handling, and capabilities, also present on its siblings. It can be brutally fast and deliver a racing, fun drive. Also, it’s a subtle, highly comfortable car that is appreciated when we try to save fuel and drive careful on a wet road, for example.
Another highlight for this vehicle is its extremely customizable drivetrain. The engine, suspension, steering wheel, and even the transmission could be individually customizable with selectable modes that transform the sedan from a luxury and comfortable motorcar into a speed beast.
German Engineering and Flexible Drivetrain
The heart of this beast is a Turbocharged 4.4 L V8 producing up to 560 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. The M5 has onboard with a seven-speed automated manual M Double Clutch Transmission (M-DCT), with paddle shifter just behind the steering wheel, while a six-speed manual transmission is also available just in the US. The engine’s twin-scroll turbochargers are placed in the space between the two cylinder banks, helping to reduce the space needed and creating a compact powertrain.
The performance in the 2015 M5 is awesome and breaks expectations. The acceleration that produces this stylish sedan is capable of launch this car from standstill to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds and make it reach a top speed that goes up to 155 mph. The fuel efficiency is normal with a consumption of 14 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway.
In addition, if the customer demands a sedan with more muscles there is a competition package for speed maniacs, increasing the V8’s output up to 575 horsepower and slightly lowering the gravitation center, thanks for a track-tuned suspension.
German Pedigree with a Refined Interior
The 2015 M5 inherits the sexy stylish aesthetic than its sibling of the 5 Series, having a refined and more performance-oriented design. The front fascia is almost exactly the same with some details that differentiate it from its sibling. A more aggressive bumper featuring a sporty air intake just underneath the LED headlights and an M Series badge.
From sideways, the car has smooth lines and nothing too eccentric. Looks like a daily basis speed-hungry car with all the luxury and elegance typical in a BMW vehicle. The wheels with visible braking calipers give it a sporty stance. The rear of the car is hot as hell while the tiny spoiler in the trunk with those twin exhaust outlets in each side is intimidating and fit incredible with the sports design of the car.
The interior is, as expected, full of top-notch materials and gives a premium and luxury sensation. The cockpit is fitted up with premium leather and aluminum details. Also, the 2015 M5 features 16-way-adjustable front seats with articulating headrest and backrest that would be comfortable for anyone. In the center console are located all the entertainment, climate control, and navigation functions.
