Next-Generation BMW M5 scooped – AWD possible


The next-generation BMW M5 has been caught leaving the company’s Nurburgring track-side test centre draped in full camouflage, leaving the M5’s signature quad exhaust pipes as the only hint of its performance flagship status.

Due to launch in 2017, the new BMW M5 is speculated to pack an upgraded 4.4-litre twin turbo V8 engine churning out around 460kW. It was also reported that the super saloon will be offered in all-wheel-drive for the first time to optimise traction.

BMW is aiming to make the M5 some 100kg lighter than the current model, more than the 60kg weight advantage its smaller sibling, the M4, has over old model.
