Wondering how the new 2012 BMW M5 sounds in person? Or the super-duper M3 CRT ? Here are two short clips delivering acoustics that put a smile on our faces. BMW has moved on with the new F10 M5 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 that guarantees legendary BMW M-car thrust with seamless lag-free power delivery from just off idle.

The engine outputs 560 horsepower from 5,750-7,000 rpm and 680Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque from only 1500rpm. Our sources say the high-rev unit takes the M5 to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds and under 4 seconds using BMW’s new Launch Control.

The M3 CRT, short for Carbon Racing Technlogy, will be produced as a limited edition and only 67 units ware being manufactured. M3 CRT uses the same engine as the M3 GTS Coupe, 450 horsepower at 8,300 RPM and 324 lb-ft torque at 3,750 RPM. Top speed is limited to 180 mph and the carbon-fiber dressed M3 runs to 62 mph in just 4.4 seconds.

    I’m optimistic.  Once my foot hits the pedal of my M5 next Autumn we shall have ourselves a revfest driving Alpine Roads, and then Autobahns, and then The Ring, and then on the route into Paris we’ll have time to calm down.

    Why the hell is it those senseless driving women who “revs” the car in these videos? :p
