The All New BMW 2011 M5
BMW continues to perfect a vehicle that’s already perfect. This recent update will most certainly keep the BMW M5 at the top of the world’s best car leader board.
Fact 1: The two turbochargers have been squeezed into the ‘V’ shape between the cylinder banks for compact construction.
Fact 2: BMW’s cross-bank exhaust manifold has an identical pipe length to ensure gas flows at an even rhythm meaning a consistent level of pressure acting on the turbochargers.
Fact 3: The turbochargers have been developed specifically for this engine and deliver a maximum pressure of 1.5 bar.

BMW hasn’t, unfortunately, provided details of grolling the main clasp or indeed, the oiliness of the baboon unit, but we are told the aforementioned cross-bank manifold and exhaust layout helps deliver a ‘multilayered collage of sound’.
You can judge for yourself (kind of) via this new video of the M5 in motion. There is the faintest gargle of a V8 coupled to a trademark BMW ‘M’ rasp. Can you really wait until November? Can you find £74k in four months? How will you occupy your days?
