Get A Load Of The New BMW M5 In These Leaked Images

2018 BMW M5 Leaked 3 830x467 BMW M5 pics go public

BMW's new version of its xDrive all-wheel drive system features a rear bias, leaving the front wheels to pick up the slack only if the rear tires can't handle any more.

The driver can also choose from Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus modes for the Variable Damper Control (VDC) system - which has M-specific tuning - and the M Servotronic steering.

The new BMW M5 is fitted as standard with M compound brakes, which are lighter than conventional grey cast iron items and therefore also bring down the car's weight. The quickest lap times would likely come from a combination of M Dynamic mode and 4WD Sport, but drivers might get the most laughs from the pure, rear-drive configuration.

BMW has unveiled the 2018 BMW M5, which marks the introduction of the sixth generation M5, since its introduction in 1984.

Additionally, we also get to see the cop chases in a brand new and rather explosive trailer. Whenever we see a auto with almost identical front and rear tire width and all-wheel-drive we usually start thinking about terminal understeer, but we're also pretty sure that BMW M engineers know what they're doing.

Naturally with this much power, all four wheels are engaged with BMW's new M xDrive.

Maximum power remains 441kW, the same as the outgoing M5 Competition, however torque increases 70Nm to750Nm and the added traction of all-wheel drive slashes the 0-100km/h claim to just 3.4sec, conveniently identical to its AMG nemesis. Top speed, meanwhile, is an electronically limited 250 km/h (155 mph), but the optional M Driver's Package can keep the fun coming to 305 km/h (189 mph).

"The M5 takes the BMW M-series into new territory, with 441 kW/600 hp, peak torque of 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) and 10.5 l/100 km [26.9 mpg imp] fuel consumption combined/ 241 g/km Carbon dioxide emissions combined, which promise supreme propulsive power and formidable performance".

Visually, the 2018 M5 is as expected - it's essentially a standard 5 Series but with larger wheels and more aggressive styling.

Saving weight was important in the development of the sedan, which is why the new M5 features an aluminum hood and a lightweight carbon fiber roof. There are optional M carbon ceramic brakes, featuring gold-painted calipers and weigh nearly 51 lbs (23 kgs) less. A set of 20-inch alloys wrapped in 275/35s in front and 285/35 in back is available. Inside there are new M Multifunctional seats, a red starter button and a heads up display amongst numerous items of standard and optional equipment.

Each M5 First Edition will have exclusive "Frozen Dark Red Metallic" paint, as well as high-gloss "Shadow Line" trim for the kidney grille, M gills and quad exhaust tips.

This is also the first time BMW has revealed a new model through a video game, with the company's long relationship with EA starting in 1999, with the launch of the original Need for Speed which featured the BMW E39 M5.
