The new BMW M5 is almost upon us and the Germans have released an audio clip which gives us an indication of what it sounds like. Have a listen and revel in the turbocharged V8 petrol goodness. Update: We have a release date of 21st August 2017 and another teaser video of the forthcoming BMW M5. Watch below:
BMW's flagship performance sedan will be fully revealed at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show and we'll be in attendance. What we know so far is that it is powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8. BMW has not released any figures, with only a suggestion that it has more power than the outgoing model. If we were to hazard a guess, 460 kW and 750 Nm sound like fair ballpark figures. With launch control dialled up and using the XDrive all-wheel drive, BMW is claiming a 0-100 kph sprint time of under 3.5 seconds. When it comes to market, it will go up against the Audi RS6 and Mercedes-AMG E63 S.
