BMW M5 2013 road test
|   Friday, October 05, 2012
The BMW M5 is set to rock the road. If you want a car which will lead you to the gate of death, then yes it is the car. The speed it can take has made this comment come true. But the safety measures are also there and hence you will be pretty assured that you would not die. The car has a horsepower of 560 and a turbo charged engine which speaks of the speed. The M5 is a sports car both in terms of the speed as well as the outlook.

The new M5 has the fifth generation engine inside it.
The twin turbo engine of 4.4 liter has been borrowed from x5M model and x6 M model. The cylinder heads with the intercoolers have been renovated to match the new look. The power sounds pretty interesting. Six thousand to seven thousand revolutions per minute with a five hundred sixty horse power generates a five hundred pound feet of torque. The engine sounds pretty good. The test results show that at 2500 rpm, it reached 475 lb-ft. the claims of BMW are all genuine. The twin turbo adds up the power.

There initially have been some problems with the engine sound. BMW has decided to pipe artificial sounds through the audio systems. The M5 BMW is pretty tight and that`s the reason why the engine sound has not being able to penetrate the car.
Speaking of the looks, the interior is pretty spacious. The looks are all justified. It looks sporty from outside. There is an option to choose between the M DCT and the manual gear box.

The automated M DCT comes with a dual clutch which has the paddle shift type gear box. The manual is advisable for the people who are pretty experienced. The manual shift requires a lengthy process. You need to release the accelerator and then with the full clutch you need to change the gears and then with slightly holding the accelerator you need to release the clutch. The M DCT does it automatically with the dual clutch fully functioning.

In general a question arises about the driving dynamics when weight is added to the curb weight. A lot of engineering is done in the M5 to match the sporty sedan standards. The damper system controls the car electronically. There are some other different steering settings available. The first is the sports and the second is the sports plus. Both the steering are pretty heavy because of the BMW tagline "Drive Small". BMW here has scrapped the sliding front brakes with caliper instead has used a set of 6 piston fitted ones.

The front seats have given the sporty look and they seem pretty wide. The cabin looks like the other BMW cars with no special effects for the BMW M5.Comfort if be the prime concern is well justified when it comes to the seats.

A little more of about $ 5000 would make the car fit with the executive packages which include the soft door closing and luxurious interiors. The executive package includes a very powerful rear sun shade.
