Strong yet light.

The aluminium chassis on the BMW M5 Sedan.

BMW puts a lot of effort into creating the ideal conditions for maximum driving pleasure. Take the specially developed aluminium chassis for example: it plays a significant role in cutting the weight of the BMW M5 Sedan and is of central importance to obtaining precision steering. Thanks to the optimised spring dampers, the high bodyshell mounting and range of settings available for the Electronic Damper Control (EDC) system, this chassis leads the way with regard to directional stability and sharp handling on bends.
