2012 BMW M5 Undergoes High Speed Testing (Video) 1
Posted by Alex Ion in Automotive News, BMW, m5, test, Videos on 06 1st, 2011

We guess we needn’t tell you that BMW is almost ready with their 2012 M5 model. Believed to be a production version of the M5 concept from the BMW stables, the car comes with some amazing features that could make any motoring freak to sit up and plan his next buy.

The company has now made public a video of the car being tested. The new official video captures the high speed testing conducted at the Nardò Ring in Italy. We have been expecting to see the vehicle at the Frankfurt Motor Show, but then the new video suggest that it could be unveiled at the M Festival soon.

Though full details haven’t come by as yet, we have managed to know that the car will be pushed out of the assembly line with an aggressive body kit, a sport-tuned suspension and a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 with approximately 575 PS (423 kW / 567 bhp) and 720 Nm (531 lb-ft) of torque.

The car will also sport a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and might offer all-wheel drive at a later stage.

The latest spy cam shots  of the upcoming 2012 M6 Coupe as well as that of the Cabriolet models are out. The vehicles were spotted while undertaking their spring testing together. Well, the most significant thing here is that the BMW M6 Coupe appears to be less disguised this time as compared to its last appearance.

That enables us to make out more assumptions based on these spied images. At the same time, Cabriolet is in the same disguise as the last time we saw it. Based on these snaps, we are able to conclude on more details of the vehicles. M6 Coupe is expected to feature new front and rear bumpers as well as side skirts.

It is likely to feature the same engine as the one in the upcoming M5 – a 4.4 liter twin-turbo V8. The engine would produce a total output of 600 PS (592 bhp / 441 kW) and is coupled to the 7-speed DCT Drivelogic double clutch gearbox.

Curtains For E60 BMW M5; Fifth-Gen F10 M5 In The Offing 8
Posted by Alex Ion in Automotive News, BMW, BMW M5, E60 BMW M5, m5 on 07 8th, 2010

It is finally quits for the E60 BMW M5. Ending five years of production, the carmaker had rolled out only 20,548 units of the fourth-generation M5. And ever since BMW went in for the five door variant, only 1,025 BMW M5 Touring units were built.

The E60 BMW M5 had been noted for its 5.0-liter V10 petrol engine that brought to the fore 509 horsepower (380 kW / 516 PS), and up to 520 Nm (380 ft-lb) of torque. We have seen it race from 0-100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds when BMW married the engine to a seven-speed SMG or a six-speed manual transmission. The model had capabilities to touch 337 km/h (209 mph), and its speed was electronically-limited to 249 km/h (155 mph).

The car maker is seriously looking at altering its assembly line in Germany’s Dingolfing, so that it can go ahead with the planned production of the F10 M5. This fifth-generation M5 could come with a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 and is seen as capable enough to return 570 hp (425 kW / 578 PS), and up to 680Nm (502 ft-lb) of torque. Sounds good!
