The German based automaker BMW has recently announced that the new generation of the M5, codenamed the F10, will be officially launched in Malaysia too, on March the 10th.
After the new generation of the BMW M5 had made its official debut in most countries around the world, time has come for Malaysia to get the model too, but its future customers in the Asian country will have to wait a little more before they will be able to drive it because the automaker will launch it on the 10th of March. Even if the model had been announced for Malaysia, there is no official word on its price tag yet, but the latest M car to be launched in the country, the X6 M, is currently on sale from RM1,188,800, while the previous generation of the M5, the E60, cost RM888k.
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.
