France’s Motorsport magazine recently took the F10 BMW M5 to the Magny-Cours Racetrack for a spin and a best time of 1:24,89 was recorded. That is pretty damn impressive for a large 4-door saloon like the M5. The new M5 features a twin-turbocharged 4.4 liter V8 engine producing 560 horsepower.
In another video, German motoring program Driving Fun TV showcased yet another way to drive the new BMW M5 – sideways! With 560 horsepower powering the rear wheels, the M5 is happy to let its tail lose at virtually anytime with the traction control turned off.
