Apparently BMW have stopped producing the m5 with a v8 (approx 290kw)
They will be shifting to a V10 powerplant which will produce approx 400 kw backed by a sequential 7 speed tranny capable of 0- 200 in under 13 seconds
Pricing is around the $200,000 mark
So place your orders quick lol
Have you driven a Ford....lateley?
Advertising has come along way-----But still not far enough!!!!!
** EL XR 6 -- Exhaust Technology System, PH4499, Stainless CAI, BMC Twin Filter, Koni Yellow, King Super Lows,DBA 4000 Rotors, Extreme Ceramic Clutch
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 ---- W 16 Configuration, Quad Turbo 1001 HP, 1250Nm, 4 Wheel Drive
A new benchmark set for the next GTHO....
1. Needs at least ten cylinders.
2. DOESNT need a 7spd tranny though
3. Needs at least 400kw
4. Doesnt need to be stripped down, the M5 probably has 2 widescreen TVs with an 800w sound system, rain-sensing wipers and everything else... so chuck everything in, with a stripped version as an option for the minority who would opt for it.
Well with Ford "following" BMW in terms of vehicle design, creative process etc. (Territory springs to mind...have heard they looked very closely at the X5) maybe the direction BMW are taking with the M5 may be "monitored" by Ford very closely.....or maybe I am just reading too much into things.
