Perfection and beauty belong together. Aesthetics isn't just a matter of surface, colour, paintwork or material – it is also expressed via aerodynamic design and other technical qualities. The designers and engineers at BMW M know that form and function go hand in hand, and they work to create solutions that combine these two aspects into a single, spectacular work of art.
A sports car has no unnecessary details. This is true above all for aerodynamics: even the wing mirrors of a BMW M have to perform well in the wind tunnel. But air doesn't have to be all about resistance: the wide intakes in the characteristic M front apron let the engine breathe and cool the large brake discs of the M light alloy wheels, while the airflow along the rear diffuser lends added downforce. A consistent focus on performance that’s continued in the interior. The most important functions belong within the driver’s easy reach. The cockpit ergonomics and material workmanship are subject to strict performance-orientated criteria. Every detail adds to the overall image of an athlete in peak condition. And in the case of the BMW M5, to an athlete with the style and understatement of a comfortable sedan.
