Photos of the new 2018 BMW M5 have leaked ahead of the sedan’s debut later today.
As was the case with previous M5s, this new version does a good job of letting you know it’s a high-performance M car while still looking understated. The front fascia has been reworked with some larger intakes, while the rear features a small black rear diffuser and quad exhaust tips. Other notable exterior features include a small rear lip spoiler, subtle side skirts and black machine finish wheels.
If rumors ring true, the new M5 will be the world’s quickest four-door sedan. Boasting a 680 horsepower version of BMW’s twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 engine, it will be capable of sprinting from 0-60 mph in a jaw-dropping 2.9 seconds and complete the quarter-mile in 10.5 seconds at 126 mph. It will also do a vision-blurring 230 mph, according to the internet. If that absurd figure does turn out to be accurate, the M5 will likely be electronically restricted to 155 mph anyway.
