Discussion in '2001 BMW M5' started by sk8er1988, Jul 15, 2003.

  1. Straight from CAR magizine, Headline says "Hottest M5 will pack 550 hp punch" " The F1 inspired V10 is known to displace 5.5 liters and 500 hp, but insiders claim this could easily jump to 5.8 liters and 550 hp at a wild 9000 rpm- enough for sub 4.5 sec spint to 60 ans easy to the limited 155 mph top speed. This will make the E60 M5 the quickest motorsport car yet""Power will be sent to the rear tires via a 3rd gereration seven speed SMG transmission, complete with a oil cooler for the rear differental." The artical also states that a M5 touring will be offered to up aggainst the RS6 Avant. But it is still a while off, see it at the beggining of 2005. All I can say is "WOW!"

    Can I say good bye E55 and RS6 and the S-Type r0( which could not even keep up with old M5)

    Some are even saying that figure might go up to 5.8 litres instead of 5.5!! That'll be insane!! 550 Naturally Aspirated Horsepower with potential for more!! AHHHH

    I'm no BMW fan or expert... but I read (in either Car and Driver or Motor Trend) that the new 500HP M5 will be good enough to reach a 0-60 time in 4.1 seconds.

    That is INSANE! This car can rival my favorite car, the Dodge Viper SRT-10 in many ways and the Viper is a sports car.

    With a 550HP engine... imagine the possibilites. Looks like I'll be adding a new car to my dream garage soon.<A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC=""></A>

    But I wish BMW used a better design. I'm not a real fan of the new look. That's not to say its bad, its just not as good as their previous designs.

    (PS - To all anti-American/anti-Viper, please respect my opinion in cars as I do yours. Thank you.)

    Hmm......the new M5? Whaddabout the new M6?
    I heard the new M5 is only meant to COMPLIMENT the upcoming M6.

    If the new M5 is 4.1 sec, I don't know what the M6 is capable then.
    It'll probably whoop a Lambo's ass.

    It is roumored that the M6 will get 600 bhp and the M5 530 bhp . bytheway if the M5 looks anything like the computer made photos i've seen it's gonna be the best preforming best looking sportssedan in the world . Can harly wait.
