We all know the new F90-gen BMW M5 is fast. Thanks to its turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 that delivers 600 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque, it's capable of 0-60 mpg in less than three seconds when properly started. However, the standard BMW M5 is electronically limited to a top speed of 155 mph, which seems like a low ceiling for the M5. No, if you get the optional M Driver & # 39; s package, which brings the speed limiter to 186 mph. In this new video from AutoTop NL we see how fast the M5 reaches the top speed of 186 mph.
All we really see in this video is the dashboard. Sure, there's a walkaround on the new M5 at the beginning, but we've all seen it before. It's only the ads that we see when the good part starts. With launch control enabled, in 4WD Sport mode and with DSC off, the M5 reaches 60 mph in just over three seconds, so did not start like Car and Driver, which led to a 2.8 second time result to get very specific start.
That's still not the good thing. After 60 miles per hour, the BMW M5 continues to pull straight to 100 miles per hour. In fact, it is able to beat 186 mph in just 30 seconds. It does not seem that fast, but it really is. By comparison, the Bugatti Veyron can do it in about 20 seconds, but twice as much, doubling the cylinders, doubling the turbochargers and doubling the radiators. Oh, and cost about ten times the price.
Interestingly, in this video, the M5 measures 308 km / h, which equates to 191 mph. So it has slightly exceeded the supposedly limited top speed. And thanks to this we can definitely see the new BMW M5 climbing 200 miles per hour with a long enough runway. Imagine a BMW sedan could hit 200 mph? We really live in the golden age of performance cars.
