BMW has announced the M5 will be hitting showrooms in September for the first time since its introduction last October.
The all-new M5 has been designed to rival the BMW i3, which launched earlier this year, in terms of styling and performance, and that it will offer both the interior and exterior design of a car with the same price tag.BMW has been using a “precision 3D” digital rendering technique to achieve a more dynamic and appealing design for the M4, the first-generation M5, and the M3, among other cars.
The new M5 is expected to debut at the 2018 Detroit auto show.
The BMW M4 is the successor to the iconic M4.
(BMW)The M5’s engine is based on the same 3.3-liter V6 found in the i3.
The engine produces 310 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque, and is mated to a 6-Speed Automatic Transmissions and a six-speed manual transmission.
It’s also paired with a new 6×8-inch all-wheel drive system that delivers 270 lb-foot of torque.
The M4 and M5 share a similar appearance, with the exception of a single rear fascia that is missing on the M6.
BMW is also removing the center stack and replacing it with a longer rear spoiler and more aggressive grille.
The rear fenders are covered in carbon fiber, while the wheels have been trimmed in carbon black.
The bodywork and exterior colors are also unchanged from last year’s M5.
The only new additions are a black center grille, a black grille-mounted taillamp, and a black hood scoop.
The M5 and M6 both have a carbon fiber rear wing and aluminum rear wing doors.
The top of the car is still black with black accents, and in addition to the standard seats and a rear cargo tray, the M2, M3 and M4 are offered with the optional LED daytime running lights.
The standard M3 will also get the LED headlights, while both the M7 and M8 are getting the optional “red” headlights.
The optional M6 and M7 also get LED daytime driving lights, and both the front seats have LED headrests.
The car is equipped with BMW’s Intelligent Drive technology that enables automatic climate control.
It also has an 8.2-inch touchscreen and a front-facing infotainment screen that displays traffic information and alerts you when there’s a traffic jam.
The car can also adjust the engine boost pressure from 0.2 psi to 1 psi and can automatically adjust the front seat cushion.
A new six-speaker, 8-inch AM/FM/USB audio system is standard, with Bluetooth connectivity for iPhone and Android phones.
It includes a CD-IUX digital amplifier, which provides the radio with direct AM/AM stereo sound and stereo 3D sound, along with USB audio output for iPod/iPhone/iPad, Bluetooth audio output, and iPod/iPod Touch connectivity.
A 12-volt power outlet is standard for the electric motor and battery pack, and an optional 8-volt outlet is included.
The BMW 5 Series is priced from $27,890, and starts at $35,950.
