The new generation of the BMW M5, codenamed F10, has been recently crashed in a test drive in the Netherlands.
Where ever there will be exotic cars (powerful cars in this case) there will always be exotic car crashes and the latest example to backup this statement is coming from the Netherlands, where the new generation of the BMW M5, codenamed F10, has been crashed during a test drive by un inexperienced driver, who wanted to buy one. According to the guys at autoblog.nl, the BMW M5 has been crashed during a test drive and the vehicle in question was a demo car.
As you can see from the images posted below this article, damages to the powerful German vehicle aren’t that severe, but even so, this apparently is the first BMW M5 F10 crashed in the Netherlands. As a reminder, the new BMW M5 is powered by a 4.4 liter V8 engine which is generating 560 horsepower, between 5.000 and 6.000 rpm, with a peak torque of 502 lb-ft available from 1.500 rpm. The V8 engine is coming with the M TwinPower Turbo and it’s mated to a seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission Drivelogic with steering wheel mounted paddle shifters. The 0 to 63 mph acceleration takes 4.4 seconds and the top speed has been limited to 155 mph, but with the M Driver’s Package, the car can go up to 190 mph.
