The all new BMW M5, the halo performance sedan of BMW M, was launched to the Australian press over two days in February. Here’s a look from Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit where it was officially launched.

The F10 M5 uses a high-revving 4.4-liter (4395cc) turbocharged engine with 560 horsepower from 5,750-7,000 rpm and 502 lb-ft of torque from only 1500rpm.

BMWBLOG has already tested the new M5 on the race track and on scenery roads in Spain, so feel free to read our own impressions as well.
