BMW releases new videos of the 2012 BMW M5. The new M5 goes on sale later this year and will join a competitive segment with the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG, Audi RS6 and Cadillac CTS-V.

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 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. The high-rev unit should rocket the M5 to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds and under 4 seconds using BMW’s new Launch Control.

BMW offers a 7-speed DCT and manual transmission in the new M5. The M5 is limited to a top speed of 155 mph, or 190 mph with the M Driver’s Package.

  1. Great videos. I like the new M instrument cluster display.  Can’t wait to see and read some test drive articles!

    these videos are so bad.  ugh… looks like bmw gave an intern a digital camera and said, “go nuts”.  what’s with all the unnecessary speed zooms and pans?  (see last video in particular) these are just awful.  c’mon spend a little money and hire a professional, but start with a marketing director who has vision and taste.

  3. Great footage and detailed videos. I like the interior more than the e60’s and the whole package brings back memories of the e39. Looking forward to some seeing it in person!
