2016 BMW 5 Series Release Date, MSRP, Interior, Price – For those buyers who desire seriousness in a vehicle performance, the 2016 BMW M5 is certainly a resounding case of having a sumptuous cake and eating it as well. My idea isn’t a new one, nor does it confined to BMW alone, but the gratification one gets from a performance-tweaked car of an otherwise imperial coupe is positively enthralling.
The principle is artless: start with a 5-passeger sleek sedan, then add a high-performance engine, sticky tires, sporty suspension and subtle styling elements and badges that only give a tipoff at the sleeper vehicle’s unparalleled capabilities. Undoubtedly, the new 2016 BMW M5 has every tidbit, and more.
The vehicle is based on the BMW’s 5 series, just like the previous model it is replacing. For seasoned BMW users, its buyers will find it ridiculously fast and surprisingly robust. It derives its motivation from a twin-turbocharged V8 engine capable of generating 560 hp, and about 575 hp if you opt for the Competition Package.
The M5 is undoubtedly an amazing vehicle that delivers on track and comfort. However, it will be faced with a tumultuous task of evading its arch rivals. Key among them are the Porsche Panamera and Audi RS 7, which defy some laws of physics, you will find their reviews somewhere on this site in case you want to check them out and compare them side by side. Others in include the supercharged Jaguar XFR-S and Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG.
