BMW unveiled the G30 series M5 recently with a special “First Edition” model. One of the best super-saloons ever, the M5 is a mainstay of proper precision performance with a darker, more evil side that occasionally comes out to play if you push it too hard.
When details of the G30 M5 were coming out, enthusiasts were shocked by the idea of an All-Wheel Drive M5 – how would you possibly do burnouts and engage in the random acts of hooliganism that the previous generations of the M5 promised? Turns out BMW knows its customer base rather well – not only is the AWD system rear biased (meaning donuts and mad drifts), you can also turn it off completely and send all the power to the rear if you want. Considering it's a big German saloon, one can't help but imagine the prospects of yelling out “Send all power to the rear - full thrust forward!” every time you think of turning the AWD off.
Power it has aplenty – the exact figures are still under wraps, but power is not a thing the M5 will ever lack. In this case, the power is provided by a 4.4 litreTwinPower Turbo V8 mated to a 8 speed Steptronic gearbox.
Will we get it? No. But we can drool at it from afar of-course.
