Video: BMW tease the new M5 image

German automaker BMW Ag. will launch the new M5 this year at the Shanghai Motor Show. Until then we have some technical data to share and two video teasers.

• 4.4-litre V8 bi-turbo
• 578bhp, 530lb ft (~)
• 155mph limited top speed
• 0-62mph 4.4sec
• Unlimited top speed 188mph

Moreover, yesterday, BMW has just released an extended version that briefly showcases a pre-production M5 being driven on the snow in addition to some comments by Dr Kay Segler, president of BMW M GmbH.

BMW’s DCT dual-clutch transmission will almost certainly be on the order sheet—and while that’s a great transmission in the M3, we hope the company will continue to offer a traditional three-pedal version as well.
