The new M5 smoking rubber!

By CheeJun on 01 Jun 2011

The Miramas circuit is where BMW bring most of their new models for testing and as you can see from the video, they have water sprinklers, chicanes, a 6km oval and most importantly, lots and lots of corners for the new M5 to dance around.

Its still under a slight camouflage job around the side skirts and all but how much different can it get from the current 5 series? The special ingredient comes underneath its sculpted bonnet and that is a 4.4 litre twin turbo V8 which is mated to a 7 speed dual clutch gear box. Not much else is revealed but what i love the most is seeing the white smoke of burning rubber coming off those rear wheels and the new M5 sliding around corners ever so gracefully is just epic! And you'll also find out that the M5 is faster than its predecessor, topping off at 306km/h or 190mph. Can't wait for it to be released and shipped over to our little island. Its roar is just too addictive..
