No other super saloon offers the BMW M5’s combination of mind-bending straight-line performance, dynamic ability and everyday usability. Some will mourn the loss of the previous M5’s manic V10, but the new 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 returns even more performance and uses less fuel. The F10 generation’s dual-clutch gearbox is a vast improvement over the old car’s SMG ‘box, too.
This M5 is an altogether more refined machine than the E60 version, but it still boasts class-leading dynamics and a degree of agility that sits completely at odds with the near two-tonne kerb weight. Whereas the current generation M3 and M4 models are less than convincing in their dynamic make-up, the M5 is perfectly judged.
The restrained, but handsome exterior styling and superbly appointed cabin simply complete the package. This M5 is a high water mark both for BMW and for the super saloon as a whole.
‘The M5 has long been the definitive super saloon and this latest version is no exception. It is everything that we love about M-cars – fast, fun to drive, great to look at and lovely to be sat in.‘It doesn’t quite have the same ‘four-door supercar’ feel of the previous E60 model, but it is altogether more useable as an everyday car and buyers love it for that.

Thrilling performance – Cabin feels exquisitely built – Will drift all day
This BMW M5 is a towering achievement. On sheer performance, it is the outstanding car in its class.
Even more incredible is this 552bhp saloon’s usability, armed with a comfortable chassis set-up, well mannered gearbox and the potential for close to 30mpg at a conservative cruise.

The BMW M5 is the car that created and defined the sports saloon back in 1985. Now in its fifth generation, it continues to move the goalposts and make supercar performance accessible for the family man. With 552bhp, the twin-turbo V8-powered M5 takes fight to the naturally aspirated Mercedes E63 AMG, but it isn’t only pace that it offers in spades. It is a relaxing cruiser, too, and in Comfort mode it can soak up huge motorway miles with ease.
Performance is the M5’s trump card. Acceleration is truly brutal, getting from 0-62mph in just 4.3 seconds, and only stopping at 155mph when the electronic limiter cuts in. These figures mean it matches the Mercedes E63 AMG exactly, and accelerates to 62mph more than half a second faster than the Jaguar XFR. What’s more, the seven-speed twin-clutch gearbox handles the power superbly, and is a huge improvement over the dated semi-automatic system on the old model. When you want it to, the M5 can deliver a truly immersive driving experience, but flick the switch to Comfort mode and the throttle response is tamed and the suspension softened, making the M5 as capable over long distances as the model it is based on.
The BMW M5 has subtle styling that’s a key part of its appeal. The breathtaking performance of the four-door saloon is hinted at by a discreet bodykit, subtle M badges, 19-inch alloy wheels and huge vented brakes – if it didn’t have these, you’d be forgiven for mistaking this for a 535d M Sport, for example. Inside it’s a similar story, with the same spacious cabin from the standard 5 Series. It’s a pleasing place to be.
The BMW M5 feels built to last both inside and out and the overall feeling is that it’s a top-quality product.
In our 2014 Driver Power customer satisfaction survey, the 5 series that tge M5 is based on finished an impressive fourth out of the top 150 cars.
Plus, it’s one of the safest executive cars on the market. There are six airbags and stability control comes as standard. Unsurprisingly, the 5 Series comfortably achieved a maximum five-star score in Euro NCAP crash tests.
