BMW M5 2018 revealed ahead of Frankfurt

BMW M5 2018 revealed ahead of Frankfurt”

Of course this sort of numbers wouldn't be possible if BMW didn't opt for the M xDrive all-wheel drive system, which is cheekily described by the company as the "most engaging all-wheel-drive system yet to grace the high-performance segment", a statement that points the finger directly to its main rival, the Mercedes-AMG E63.

The new M5's engine is a development of the old model's 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 that now offers 600 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque.

Cornell-Duranleau was sleeping inside that condo when Lathem let Warren inside at about 4:30 a.m. on July 27, prosecutors said. Lathem allegedly decided that their first victim would be Trenton Cornell-Duranleau, his 26-year-old boyfriend.

If you've been following all the spy photos, teases, and leaks of the new BMW M5, there aren't very many surprises.

To help maintain grip while utilizing the M5's firepower, the xDrive system features a heavily rear-biased torque split and three driving modes without the stability control (DSC) engaged. Indeed, the front wheels are only given power when those at the rear aren't able to put any more torque down effectively. The 2018 M5 reaches 0-60 miles per hour in only 3.2 seconds, making it the quickest M5 yet. The driver has five different configurations to choose from based on combinations of the DSC modes (DSC on, MDM, DSC off) and M xDrive modes (4WD, 4WD Sport, 2WD). With this cooperation BMW can reach out to a new audience that is truly digital. Plus, drivers can turn the system off, reverting the M5 back to rear-wheel drive, although this mode is intended for track use only. There will be no shortage of setup options and driving modes with the new M5, as might be expected: the Drivelogic control of the gearbox offers three settings, with manual control via the gear selector and steering wheel paddles, plus there are three settings for the engine, steering and chassis in the usual fashion. Also new is the rear diffuser. These extend into the extremely lightweight carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) roof - a standard feature of the new M5. The optional M carbon ceramic brakes, which can be identified by callipers painted in a gold colour and shave another 23 kilograms off the M5's weight, can withstand even greater punishment. Scheduled for launch on the same sales start date as the standard M5 is the BMW M5 First Edition. That indicates BMW's engineers set to work on the M5 before the broader 5 Series range was locked in, which supports the news that BMW is committed to launching its M cars sooner in the life cycle of the donor range.

Jerome Kaino returns home from Sydney ahead of All Blacks-Wallabies test
A total of 12 tries were scored in an 88-point fixture that exposed some serious deficiencies in the Wallabies defence. All Blacks captain Kieran Read described his side's sublime first-half attacking blitz as "surreal".

Despite weighing a tad more kilos and using a modified version of the exact same engine as its F10 predecessor, the all-new M5 manages to outgun it from just about every technical angle.

Each M5 First Edition will have exclusive "Frozen Dark Red Metallic" paint, as well as high-gloss "Shadow Line" trim for the kidney grille, M gills and quad exhaust tips. Inside there are new M Multifunctional seats, a red starter button and a heads up display amongst numerous items of standard and optional equipment.
