    BMW teases new M5



    http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/news/au...es_new_m5.html

    The M5 is coming! BMW has posted this official teaser video for the new M5 on its YouTube channel. The video features a lightly disguised prototype of the new super saloon, interspersed with comments from BMW’s M Division boss, Kay Segler.

    Although the video doesn’t reveal much, Segler describes the new M5 as “a bold business car that at the push of a button turns into a sports car”.

    The button in question is likely to be the steering-wheel-mounted M button, which activates the most aggressive settings for the engine’s power, the throttle response, steering, dampers and traction control.

    Under the bonnet, the M5 is expected to get an uprated version of BMW’s new 4.4-litre V8, which features a pair of turbochargers which fit inside the engine block’s ‘V’.

    The new unit replaces the naturally aspirated 5.0-litre V10, and is cleaner yet features more power and torque, with around 570bhp expected when the car debuts at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

    The transmission is as-yet unknown. BMW offered the current M5 with its SMG automated manual only, except in the US where the firm added a version of the previous generation car’s six-speed manual gearbox to the line-up as well.
