The new 2018 BMW M5 has just been unveiled and BMW is already giving us the first wallpapers for our electronic devices. The design of the new M5 is an evolution of the previous F10 model and was built upon the lightweight architecture of the current G30 5 Series.

Inside, the M5 gets a bit more adventurous while it retains the typical driver-oriented design. A series of performance settings, steering wheel controls, and transmission-mounted buttons are set in place to help you configure the M5’s power. A new M shifter will debut on the M5, along with new shift paddles. Occupants are treated to Merino leather upholstery, with the driver and front passenger getting M sports seats with electric adjustment, heating, and embossed M logos on the head restraints.
Numerous weight-saving measures have been used to make the M5 lighter than its predecessor, despite the addition of all-wheel drive, including a roof fashioned from carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP), along with aluminum front side panels and bonnet.
As we mentioned earlier, this is the fastest BMW M car today, with a standard sprint of 3.2 seconds, thanks to its 600 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque.
When it goes on sale in Spring 2018, the M5 will initially be offered in a “First Edition” trim that adds a numbered plaque, 20-inch wheels, red paint and white leather. Only 50 examples have been dedicated for the U.S.
