:: Info

M's starting point for the new M5 was the 540i 6-Speed sedan. The 540i is powered by an already brilliant V8 engine, the M62 4.4-liter DOHC 32 valve unit developing 282 HP. But M's engineers have a tradition to uphold: elevating BMW engines to even greater levels of technological innovation.

To this end, BMW Motorsport developed a new version of the V8 engine, endowing it with exciting new technologies. Called the S62, this engine is the new masterpiece of M Power. The M5 engine takes M Power to a new level. Its key features reflect the care with which BMW M develops an already powerful BMW engine into a full-on sports powerplant. The M5 engine develops 394 HP at 6600 rpm and 498.94 of torque at 3800 rpm.

Base price: $69 400 USD.
