The figures that speak for themselves with 412 kW and a torque of up to 680 Nm, the BMW M5 Sedan accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in only 4.3 seconds. With the Competition Package there is an output of 423 kW available − and an acceleration of 4.2 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h.

As a high-revving power unit, the BMW M TwinPower Turbo V8 petrol engine delivers statements in terms of power and acceleration. The high-performance unit derives its remarkable torque from the encounter between the M typical linear power curve and the tremendous thrust of twin turbocharging. Two separate and generously dimensioned circuits cool the engine, charge air and the engine electronics while the patented M TwinScroll charging concept guarantees an impressive response. The high torque is available over a wide rev range and delivers strong forward propulsion from just above the idling speed through to the high-rev range. This spectacular response causes the engine to react readily to the throttle at all times.

Thanks to many intelligent BMW Efficient Dynamics measures, such as Valvetronic, double-Vanos and High Precision Injection, the engine has an impressive average performance-to-consumption ratio of just 9.9 liters per 100 kilometers.

*The published fuel consumption and CO2 emission figures are established according to legislated technical specifications (UNECE Regulation 101/UN Regulation 83 and SANS 20101 standards), which sets out the procedures that are used to measure the CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. The claimed figures are established using specific tests under standardised, carefully controlled conditions and may differ from consumption achieved under real world conditions with the influences of altitude, road surface, geographic conditions, vehicle options, temperature, humidity, tyres size and driving behaviour amongst others.
