Debuting the innovative M xDrive system, the sixth generation of the M5 combines remarkable track day potential with the everyday usability and comfort expected of a luxury sports sedan.

“We are thrilled to have the new BMW M5 here in the country,” said BMW Group Australia CEO, Marc Werner.

“The performance figures alone are impressive, and if you combine it with the switchable all-wheel-drive system you have both a track car and a luxury sedan, without compromise at either end of the spectrum.

“Given the remarkable price point we’ve offered the M5 at here in Australia we have generated considerable interest. We cannot wait to see local customers jump behind the wheel,” he said.

The new BMW M5 is powered by a further developed version of the M Division’s 4.4-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 engine.


Impressive features include:

  • Updated 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine generates 441kW and 750Nm, with Zero-100km/h achieved in only 3.4 seconds
  • First-ever BMW M passenger vehicle to utilise M xDrive, with a bespoke switchableall-wheel-drive system
  • Debut of M5-specific eight-speed sports automatic transmission with shift paddles
  • Extensive use of CFRP ensures new M5 is lighter than predecessor, even with all-wheel drive system and the latest safety technologies
  • iDrive6 infotainment system with 10.25-inch colour touchscreen
  • Incredible level of standard equipment includes CFRP roof, M Sport Exhaust System, full leather ‘Merino’ upholstery, and Driver Assistant Plus
