BMW Germany released earlier today the pricing for the new 2012 BMaW M5. The super sporty and luxurious sedan has a base price of 102,700 euro.  Its main competitor, the Mercedes Benz E63 AMG, is priced at 105,791 euro for the 525 horsepower variant and 113,645 euro for the 557 horsepower model.

With the new super sporty sedan, BMW has moved on from from naturally aspirated engines to a TwinPower turbocharged V8. The high-revving 4.4-liter (4395cc) turbocharged uses the BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology, twin-scroll turbochargers, high-precision direct fuel injection, VALVETRONIC variable valve control and a cross-bank exhaust manifold. The engine outputs 560 horsepower from 5,750-7,000 rpm and 680Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque from only 1500rpm.

The previous generation E60 M5 had an MSRP of 94,700 euro in Germany, considerably lower than the F10 M5.

Based on recent information that were presented to us, we continue to believe that the 2012 BMW M5 will be priced near the $90,000 mark for US customers. The F10 M5 should arrive at local US dealerships in May-June 2012.

    I don’t understand why in US M5 is considerably cheaper than in Europe (it should be the other way around because M5 is made in Europe)..can anyone explain pls. thx

    I think you’re a bit high on the M5 @ $90K, my friend. 

    In UK, M5 begins at £73090, but X6M begins at £82190, almost £10K higher. 

    In US, X6M begins at $89.5K, which means M5, if logic holds, ought to be closer to $80K than $90K. 

    Remember: you haven’t got that super-expensive & temperamental F1-derived V10 to build for this M5, just a variant of the same engine we find in F10 550i, X5M & X6M.  Turbo construction is rather simple, as it fits so easily in the V of the engine.  

    Plus: How else can you sell £10K of Full leather interior in US ($12k easy) if the price already starts at $90K?This will be a very affordable M car.  Soon M3 goes away, and then nothing…There’s a lot coming down the pike in the next three years, but something must sell in the meantime.

    My prediction: $82K max.

    Its depressing considering the car is going to cost around $260k AUD… $280k USD here in Australia…you can all stop complaining now!
