The BMW M5 has at all times been the supercar you buy when you have a family and need to use it as a daily. It’s been exceptionally fast, capable and fun to drive but also stinks, comfy and as practical as any other luxury sedan. This ’s never been more true with this new F90-gen car. If I had six-figures to spend on just one automobile, there wouldn’t be hesitation — BMW M5. Therefore it’s interesting to hear exactly what it’s actually prefer to have and reside for long periods of time, which is just what Top Gear did.
Over the span of eight months, the F90 BMW M5 has been at the TG fleet, also tasked with a variety of different jobs. It’s been a check car, a track car, a daily driver and just a camera auto. And it’s been exceptional at every task it’s been given thus far. Not just that but, more to the point, it’s damn riot to push.
With a stonking 4.4 liter twin-turbo V8 under hood making 600 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque, it’s impossible not to need to drive fast. And it can induce. After some testing, TG record an average 0-60 mph , in 2 ways, of 2.99 seconds. This ’s quicker than every sedan on the planet, with the exclusion of the Tesla Model S P100D. Though, the M5 is much more fun to drive and can do these sprints more frequently and repeatedly.
It’s also fun to push. With excellent steering, excellent body management and unexpected elegance, the BMW M5 is a much greater dance partner than any two-ton luxury sedan has the right to be. Needless to say, it won’t be as engaging as some thing like an M2 Competition or Porsche Cayman nevertheless it’s also a helluva lot quicker than those cars, far more lavish, can match fight people and it’s a bigger trunk. Whilst a do-it-all, everyday supercar, there might not be anything better on the street.
