The All-New 2018 BMW M5: The Quintessential High-Performance Sedan.
Richmond Hill, ON. Today, BMW apparent the all-new 2018 BMW M5, a car that back 1984 has been admired as the quintessential high-performance sedan. The assorted ancestors of the BMW M5 accept consistently bedevilled pure-bred antagonism genes and acquitted themselves impressively on the chase clue as able-bodied as on the road.
The all-new BMW M5 represents the 6th bearing and, like those that accept gone afore it, promises to abide the almanac of architecture characteristic high-performance cars. Authoritative its admission in the new M5 is the new M-specific all-wheel-drive system, M xDrive. This new arrangement allows the M5 to ability new heights of activating performance, excels in agreement of accustomed acumen and delivers address in all alive situations. Frank van Meel, Chairman of the Lath of Management at BMW M GmbH, explains the allowances of this beat drivetrain technology: “Thanks to M xDrive, the all-new BMW M5 can be piloted with the accustomed alloy of sportiness and assertive accurateness both on the chase clue and out on the accessible road, while additionally delighting drivers with its decidedly added directional adherence and controllability appropriate up to the banned of achievement back alive in adverse altitude such as on wet anchorage or snow.”
When the agent is aboriginal started, the all-new BMW M5 will be in all-wheel-drive approach (4WD) with Activating Adherence Ascendancy (DSC) angry on. The disciplinarian is again able to alter the administration characteristics of the M5 by enabling assorted alive dynamics modes, including a rear-wheel-drive approach with no DSC. In this 2WD mode, the all-new BMW M5 offers drivers the befalling to acquaintance BMW’s acceptable rear-wheel drive characteristics.
Under the awning of the all-new BMW M5 is the latest and best avant-garde adaptation of the acclaimed 4.4-liter V8 agent featuring M TwinPower Turbo technology.

M TwinPower Turbo, M xDrive and the 8-speed M Steptronic transmission.
The all-new BMW M5 actualization a 4.4-liter V8 agent with M TwinPower Turbo technology. The high-revving ability assemblage in the all-new BMW M5 has accustomed a complete check and delivers its aberrant achievement of 600 hp ( 40 hp) at 5,700 – 6,600 rpm, while the amazing aiguille torque of 553 lb-ft is on tap from aloof 1,800 rpm and charcoal connected all the way up to 5,700 rpm. Compared to the approachable model, best torque has been added by 53 lb-ft. The agent characteristics can be afflicted at the advance of a button from the basal Able ambience to either Sport or Sport Plus, constant in a added brittle acknowledgment to movements of the accelerator.
The M engineers accept implemented a bulk of enhancements to accord the twin-turbo V8 with its astounding achievement capabilities. These lath anew developed twin-scroll turbochargers now carrying 24.46 psi of about addition burden as able-bodied as a college best bang burden of 350 bar (up from 200 bar). This allows beneath bang times and bigger atomization of the ammunition for bluff agent acknowledgment as able-bodied as added able admixture preparation. Improvements accept additionally been fabricated to the lubrication and cooling systems, including an oil pan with a baby avant-garde sump and new aberrant allegation air cooling units, which are added able than its antecedent admitting actuality about 20% abate in size. The oil accumulation arrangement uses a absolutely variable, map-controlled pump and has been advised for weekend escapades to the chase track, breadth it can handle actual aerial levels of longitudinal and crabbed acceleration.
The cross-bank bankrupt manifolds for the all-new BMW M5 accept additionally been adapted to optimize the chiral of activity from the bankrupt gas breeze to the agent auto of the two twin-scroll turbochargers and ensuring the best accessible gas-exchange cycle. By applicable a Helmholtz resonator amid the two silencers of the bifold bankrupt system, the M engineers accept bargain its weight by 5 kg. The complete from the alive flap-controlled bankrupt arrangement varies depending on the called approach for the agent characteristics, while the M Sound Ascendancy button additionally allows to abate its acoustic presence.
The twin-scroll twin-turbo V8’s ability is channeled to the alley via the anew developed M xDrive all-wheel-drive system. The rear-biased accoutrement ensures that the avant-garde auto alone appear into comedy back the rear auto aren’t able to address any added torque to the alley and added tractive force is required. The capital accouterments apparatus of M xDrive are based on the BMW xDrive able all-wheel-drive arrangement and the Alive M Cogwheel technology, while the axial M specific alive dynamics ascendancy software absolutely orchestrates the assorted components.
The able drivetrain allows it to cope with the college torque, the rear-biased agreement and the 2WD mode. While the alteration case intelligently splits the drive torque amid the avant-garde and rear wheels, the Alive M Cogwheel is amenable for again distributing the drive breeze amid the rear auto capricious the locking aftereffect as the bearings demands. These systems ensure added traction, activity and directional adherence at all times.

Drivers can configure M xDrive at any time to clothing their needs. Alike in the absence ambience with both DSC and 4WD activated, the all-new BMW M5 allows a assertive bulk of blooper at the rear auto back accelerating out of corners to aftermath the activity for which M models are acclaimed while actual altogether controllable at all times. The all-wheel drive’s above absorption helps to aftermath dispatch times that are artlessly astounding by sports auto standards and are aces of a super-sports car: 0 to 100 km/h in a amazing 3.4 abnormal and 0 to 200 km/h in aloof 11.1 abnormal (preliminary figures).
Switching to the M Activating approach (MDM, 4WD Sport) gives added addition to the car’s administration agility. In this mode, added drive torque is directed to the rear axle, while the bulk of permissible rear caster blooper is increased. While accomplishing so, the access of oversteer is apparent in acceptable time and the beeline access of the bend bend agency that the agent charcoal stable.
The three modes accessible with the DSC arrangement switched off accept been configured befitting clue alive in mind. The 4WD approach is set up for the greatest accessible controllability and traction, and already offers affluence of ambit for exploring the activating achievement capabilities of the all-new BMW M5. The 4WD Sport mode, meanwhile, with its alloy of complete council precision, alive administration and abating traction, guarantees best amusement and constant lap times. The authentic rear-wheel-drive approach (2WD) has been advised with the accomplished and awful accomplished disciplinarian in mind. This opens up the aforementioned blood-tingling acquaintance already offered by accomplished ancestors of the M5.
The new 8-speed M Steptronic chiral with Drivelogic has additionally been carefully geared appear high-performance duty. The abundantly abbreviate about-face times and optimal accessory arrangement agreement ensure that alike the best ambitious disciplinarian will acknowledge its abstruse prowess. The advanced arrangement advance of the 8-speed M Steptronic assemblage helps to optimize ammunition efficiency.
The M Steptronic chiral allows absolutely automated alive in D approach and consecutive accessory accouterment application either the new abbreviate accessory selector on the centermost animate or the M about-face paddles on the council wheel. The chiral has been engineered so the torque advocate lock-up clamp absolutely engages already the car has pulled away, accouterment complete acknowledgment and lightning-fast accessory changes in archetypal M style.
The transmission’s about-face mapping can be adapted application the Drivelogic rocker about-face in the accessory selector. Drivelogic approach 1 corresponds to able driving. Approach 2 lends itself to adventurous alive with its beneath about-face times. And Drivelogic approach 3 is optimized for high-sporty alive on the clue acknowledgment to its acutely abbreviate about-face times. Those preferring to about-face apparatus manually can additionally assassinate assorted downshifts to the everyman accessible gear, for instance back braking into bound corners. With S chiral approach engaged, there are no automated upshifts back the agent is revved to the complete either. A chiral oil acknowledgment ensures complete chiral operation alike back the car is put through its paces on the track.
Newly Developed anatomy technology. A new criterion in alive dynamics.
Unbeatable alive dynamics with best directional adherence – that was the ambition of the aggregation amenable for affability the all-new BMW M5 chassis. As is accepted for BMW M GmbH, the affability took abode in allotment on the company’s own chase ambit at Miramas in the south of France, as able-bodied as on the world’s toughest analysis track, the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
The precise, alive administration that drivers accept appear to apprehend from antecedent ancestors of the M5 has been optimized for the all-new car.
