BMW Launches The New M5, 'World Performance Car 2018', In Malaysia
The crème de la crème of BMW's 5 Series line comes to Malaysia with the M moniker. The new M5, recently launched at Sepang International Circuit, continues the model's dual nature of offering luxury daily driving as a premium business sedan and superior track capability as a high-performance vehicle.
The new BMW M5 has already picked up several accolades, namely the title of 'World Performance Car 2018' at the 2018 New York International Motor Show. For the first time, the new sports sedan comes with BMW's M xDrive all-wheel drive system with various customisable modes, such as the ability to switch between rear-wheel-drive and 4-wheel-drive, for greater control.
Design wise, the car sports a newly developed front bumper for larger air intakes and a redesigned rear diffuser that matches an M body kit, resulting in a sportier more masculine look.
Under the bonnet, a 4.4 litre V8 engine with BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology fuels this handsome sedan, finishing the 0 to 100km/h benchmark in only 3.4 seconds and having a top speed of 250km/h.
Putting the driver first, the new BMW M5 features two red buttons, named 'M1' and 'M2', on the steering wheel to store two driving set-ups made up of user selected combinations that will be enabled at the touch of a button for greater personalisation.
Available in Marine Bay Blue, Donington Grey and Singapore Grey metallic, the new BMW M5 is available nationwide come June 1 at the price of RM942,759.86 without insurance. Additional packs to take the car's performance further are also available.
