2018 BMW M5 Is The Fastest And Most Expensive Yet At $102,600 In The U.S.

BMW has used the Los Angeles Auto Show to announce the 2018 M5 will be priced from $102,600 in the United States.

Set to go on sale next spring, the redesigned M5 is distinguished by an aggressive body kit that includes new bumpers, revised side skirts, and a sporty rear diffuser. The model also has an aluminum hood, a carbon fiber-reinforced plastic roof, and 19-inch lightweight alloy wheels with an Orbit Grey finish.

The cabin comes nicely equipped with M Multifunction seats which are covered in Extended Merino leather upholstery. Drivers will also find a digital instrument cluster, an M-specific head-up display, and an M sports steering wheel.

Motivation is provided by a 4.4-liter TwinPower Turbo V8 engine that produces 600 hp (447 kW) and 553 lb-ft (748 Nm) of torque – an increase of 40 hp (29 kW) and 53 lb-ft (71 Nm). The engine is connected to a new eight-speed automatic transmission which sends power to unique all-wheel drive system. This setup enables the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 3.2 seconds and hit a top speed of up to 189 mph (304 km/h) with the optional M Driver’s Package.

    Just slightly out of my price range.

    Hopefully it doesn’t feel as overweight and artificial as the F10 M5. That thing just did not feel like an M series car at all and felt more like a shorter wheel base 7 series. Plus the exhaust note was terrible.

      After V10 sound,nothing can satisfy us,even fake engine noise is not able to.

      Agreed. Huge disappointment and a setback for BMW and us enthusiasts.

      I’ve moved on to a Tesla. No point on a big fat M car that can’t compete sans range.

        I got a CTS-V. It doesn’t sound as intoxicating, especially since I modified it to rev up to almost 10k rpm, but man does that car perform and put out amazing numbers. I’m tempted to get an E63 though.

          CTS-V must be perfect sounding car,lucky you!
