The speed and agile light-footedness of a horse may be justifiably compared with the 2012 BMW M5. The M5 is both versatile and high performing: it has the ability to reach 100 mph in under 5 seconds; plus, the M5 is equipped with numerous safety features to ensure the driver's protection.
The M5 design enhances its performance, while sustaining a sporty yet elegant exterior; for instance, the front apron consists of very large air intakes for both engine and brakes, and flared wheel arches emphasize a wide track.
The luxury sedan features a leather-covered center console. The M5 also offers a hydraulic rack-and-pinion steering with M-specific Servotronic function.
Spacious trunk space is a valuable feature in the BMW M5.
The M5 interior is roomy with five M sports seats.
The M5 features a wide variety of driver-assistance programs, including BMW Night Vision with pedestrian detection, Lane Change Warning System and internet usage.
Engine technology includes M TwinPower Turbo technology with cross-bank exhaust manifold, twin-scroll turbocharging and direct petrol injection (High Precision Injection).
The M5 made it world debut at the Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA).
