The new M5 is TOO BIG. I drove an F10 and it's just like a barge. That's the real problem. Why do they invest so much R&D in making a whale handle well is beyond me. I now realize that Mercedes is clever when they don't really care if their big saloons handle well. They only add power and brakes.

560hp is not extraordinary. It's clear that BMW also had efficiency in mind besides the power.

The new M3, on the other hand...

But you can´t be serious comparing the panamera and the 5 series?!

Epic Fail

Boring looks like a Ford Taurus.

Would buy so many other cars first if I was in the market.

I have liked the prior M5's but I think this one will be a flop.

It will be a success for bmw, a nice car to have but IMO will not fill the void of a true M car. Would be nice if they offered both this and a high revving screamer.
+1
I hope the M GmbH will surprise us all and the upcoming M3 will still have a NA engine.

Remeber this one, some 20 years ago?

Turbos are from the past and ready for the future imho.

BMW I am dissappoint

3 less HP than an X6M--- and only 1 more Tq?

sounds like a whole lotta nothing you get extra from those humungous intercoolers. Maybe the torque curve will be awesome, and maybe there will be a lot left over for aftermarket tuners.... I was at least hoping for a figure like 575hp


So --- WHY on earth would I ever spend 100,000 on an M5 when I can get a 550i with xdrive and M-aero kit and a tune? DCT/6spd? Ceramic brakes? (likely a huge $$$$ option)

M isn't for motorsport
M isn't even for marketing anymore
M is for MEANINGLESS

It's true, they should be reversed. Look at the current E92 M-Sport vs the M3, the current F10 m-sport looks like the M3 front and the M5 looks like the E92 front.

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

From the press release:

1945kg = 4322lbs.

For comparison, 550i is 4343lbs (manual)
