The numbers speak for themselves: 500 lb-ft, 560 hp, 0 to 100 km/h 4.3 seconds (with the Competition Package: 575 hp, 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds. The high-rev eight-cylinder M TwinPower Turbo engine of the new BMW M5 makes a statement with its performance and acceleration. The remarkable engine power comes from the connection to a linear power curve with the extreme thrust of a double turbocharger. Enhanced intercoolers and the patented TwinScroll charging concept ensure a spontaneous response rate. The torque of 500 lb-ft is available over an extremely wide rev range from 1,500 to 5,750 1/min . As a result, the M TwinPower Turbo eight-cylinder engine reacts to every touch of the accelerator with a tremendous forward surgeThanks to Valvetronic and High Precision Injection, the engine also sets standards for performance and fuel consumption. This results in an average of only 11.2 litres consumption when combined with BMW EfficientDynamics measures such as Auto Start Stop function and Brake Energy Regeneration. And if that is still not enough: in combination with the Competition Package, the power of the M TwinPower Turbo eight-cylinder petrol engine rises to an impressive 575 hp thanks to increased boost pressure in the upper rev range – and all of this with constant fuel consumption. Here the maximum torque of 500lb-ft is available over a rev range from 1,500 to 6,000 1/min. Figures that simply have to be experienced.
