BMW M5 Sedan: M chassis

M chassis.

Meeting high demands for driving dynamics, agility and precision – the complicated M high-performance chassis. An innovative and independent development of BMW M GmbH.

Stiffening of the front of the car optimises stability and increases the precision of steering responses. The two front-suspension strut towers front are connected to the chassis by a suspension cross-brace in aluminium. Just as invisible, but very noticeable is the Active M Differential on the rear axle, which enables tremendous acceleration and is available for the first time in the BMW M5. The three settings on the Dynamic Damping Control – Normal, Sport and Sport+ – allow you to adjust the suspension to suit your requirements. The M Drive buttons on the steering wheel are pre-programmed with vehicle configurations that support either a sporty or relaxed driving style. One of these is the M Dynamic Mode, which allows a particularly authentic driving experience using the maximum lateral and longitudinal dynamics possible. This affects the normal function of the Dynamic Stability Control so it only has a stabilising effect in emergency situations.
