I'm thinking this will probably make me switch to an E90 M3, v8 of course. When the time comes.

Mein Auto: M5 as of 8/28
Interesting rendition. I'm sure it'll be faster than the current E60 M5 for 0-60, 0-100 and 1/4 mile possibly, but the top speed unlimited is a bit lacking. I like the current M5's top unlimited speed of around 205mph - nothing faster with 4 doors out there!

... The Ultimate Driving Machine raises the "Automotive Super Sport Sedan" bar it once again. (key word "super".)
the upcoming M5 will have more horsepower and torque yet consume less fuel... utilizing a Twin-Turbo V8! It will be overall lighter than it's predecessor and I'm sure it will have a state-of-the-art transmission to transmit every iota of power to the pavement!

BIGTX - Can has now?

Arriving late this year as a 2011...






Quote:
Despite moving down in displacement, advanced technology and twin-turbochargers have the M5 producing at least 555 horsepower and 500 ft/lbs of torque!

First I don't ever believe possible it will only go 188. Second what is the last time you went that fast and thought you were lacking something? Hilarious. Time to speed much more important.

But for how long?

In the near future, SSC has plans for a 220+ mph 4 door, luxury, sports sedan. But the question is when?

A nice video of the Ultimate Aero (fastest street legal car in the world) at the end of this article.

http://www.popularmechanics.com/cars/jay-leno/4289707

Now hurry up and make the 4 door sedan.

I like! A Lot!

I wonder if there will posts about faulty HPFP's?

Somehow, the idea of a 500HP naturally aspirated engine has more appeal to me than a twin turbo? Not sure why though, the tuning potential of a twin turbo will be intersting.

I'll buy the popcorn, but tuning one of these monsters to above 600 hp should be a walk in the park, any wagers on if we will see a 700+ hp M5??

I fancy one but I think the price will be way to high.
600BHP should be just a remap.

I still like the E60 M5 better. You can't beat the sound of the v10 E60 M5 w/ miestershaft exhaust.

Corrected...I'm sure the weather has nothing to do with your decision. Agree...price is king here.

By the time is comes out gas will be back to 5-6 bucks/gallon. I don't think folks will buy the M5/6 like in the past. Times are changin. I am surprised BMW has not dumped the M5. Maybe one more last ditch effort to make some extra cash. BMW needs to stop the sillyness and start making competitive cars rather than niche wannabees.

I can't wait to see what the F11 M5 will look like - assuming that there will be one.

And I would like to have those F10 M5 wheels on my E61!

Gasoline already costs $5+ USD a gallon in Europe. The E60/61 M5 is crazy money here as well, and BMW still sells them from Russia in the east, to the UK in the west.

The E60 M5 is in no way whatsoever a "niche" car.

That was the first thing I thought when I saw the actual pics, too. I like the look of the F10 much more than the E60, so I can imagine how good the F11 M5 will look.

actually the CTS-V is faster and its been proven on the track. But the M5 is much hotter
