A powerful BMW M5 F10 has been recently crashed on the Autobahn, in Germany, after its driver was pushing the gas pedal until approximately 300 km/h.
We have always said here on inautonews.com that where ever there will be exotic cars, there will also be exotic car crashes, and even if the BMW M5’s new generation isn’t exactly exotic, we couldn’t say “No” to such an unfortunate incident. According to the guys at the Bimmer Post, the driver in the M5 F10 below was travelling at approximately 300 km/h when he lost control of the wheel after braking and swerving to avoid another vehicle. Our source is saying that the 60-year-old driver, the 20-year-old passenger and a dog were seriously injured, but still alive.
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.
