Profile

To comply with ever tightening efficiency regulations, BMW's fifth generation M5 super saloon swapped it's screaming V10 for a more eco-friendly (but still fiendishly fast) twin-turbo V8.

The 4.4 litre twin turbo V8 produces an impressive 552 bhp and 502 ftlb of torque, the kind of power normally reserved for supercars. This moves the near 2 tonne BMW from 0-60mph in just 4 sec. indeed, to save weight and lower the car's center of gravity, the M5 features a bespoke carbon roof.

Interior is comfortable and full of tech, but could perhaps be a little more special to distinguish it from lesser 5 -series.

The optional 'Performance Package' increases power to 575 hp with a 190mph max (if taken with the 'M Drivers Package'), plus a lowered, more aggressive suspension setup.

Super fast, but lacking the excitement of the 4th gen V10, used M5s now available for around the 25k mark. This represents stunning value for one of the worlds best super salooons.
