The fifth generation of BMW M5 has twice the horsepower of the first model. The car rage like a minotaur went to war and is very fast, so it reminds me of Ferrari 599 GTB. The new M5 is fabulous.
I think BMW made this car especially for those who want to follow a Ferrari with three friends in the car. Or even four and their luggage and always has been like that. The first M5, today a collection piece accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in just over 6 seconds, this was 25 years ago. And it took a quarter of a century for the fifth generation of M5, launched two days ago, said the international press in Spain, to increase its power to 560 hp. The power has doubled in 25 years for the BMW M5 and this has added sufficient electronics to control even a NASA rocket. Otherwise it would be impossible to keep the car on the road for a nearly two tons monster running over 300 km / h. After the two generations ago model, the new M5 returns to a V8 engine configuration under the hood. At one point, when the crisis hit the world we seriously invest in the car with the idea of a vehicular engine for the M5 former generations, but with over-powered twin-turbo. Yes, V10 bi-turbo. But the downsizing has occurred in our lives and small displacement engines driven, over-powered and equipped with Start & Stop. Yes, the new BMW M5 2012 also has a Start & Stop button.
