Mom Enjoys Some Sideways Action In New BMW M5

A new BMW ad tells the scripted story of a modern family with a passion for M-branded cars.

The 1-minute long commercial kicks off with the clock hitting 5pm, and shows a mother heading towards her 2018 BMW M5, with M Performance parts. Before opening the door, the woman stops for a few seconds to admire the super sedan, taking off her M-branded (of course) sunglasses.

On the way home, the road is closed, forcing her to take a detour through a track, so this is where the new BMW M5 comes to life. It has 600hp (609PS) and 553lb-ft (748Nm) of torque produced by the twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine and channeled to the unique all-wheel drive system through an eight-speed DCT.

Naught to 60mph (0-96km/h) takes as little as 3.2sec, and with the optional M Driver’s Package, top speed increases to 189mph (304km/h).

Watch The New BMW M5 Set Two Drifting Records At The Same Time

During this time, the kid is playing with yet another M5, the older E60, known for its 5.0-liter V10 engine that feeds 500hp (507PS) and 384lb-ft (520Nm) of torque to the rear wheels.

Just as mom is pulling into the driveway, dad’s ride is visible in the garage for a few seconds: the M5 E39, which seems ready to unleash its 400hp developed by the 4.9-liter V8 engine.

    FYI; nobody is interested in driving a Feminist’s Car.
    Great way to alienate what’s left of BMW’s fan base.
