Its 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 kicks out nearly 600 horsepower through an eight-speed automatic transmission, sending it to 62 in 3.4 seconds and on to a top speed as high as 190 miles per hour (with the optional M Driver’s package).
The hardest choice, then, may come down to which color to order it in. And BMW Individual only makes the decision more difficult.
As it is, the Bavarian automaker’s latest super-sled comes in black, white, blue, teal, or three shades of grey. But the Individual catalog opens up a whole range of possibilities.
Just look at these latest images, published on Facebook by BMW itself, in which the M5 is showcased in a rainbow of colors. There’s one in Purple Silk, another in Java Green, one in Long Beach Blue, and a fourth in Champagne Quartz – all metallic paints that we’re sure look even better in person than they do on our screens. But that’s not the end of it.
Flip through the images and you’ll see one in what the manufacturer itself has termed “Ferrari Red,” and another in matte Frozen Black. What’s more is that we’re sure these are just a few of the options, however much they may cost. BMW Individual has been known to cook up Munich’s finest in just about any color you want, as long as you’re willing to pay for it.
