M TwinPower Turbo V8 petrol engine in the
The numbers speak for themselves: 680 Nm, 560 hp (412 kW), 0 to 100 km/h 4.3 seconds. The high-rev eight-cylinder M TwinPower Turbo engine of the new BMW M5 makes a statement with its performance and acceleration.
The remarkable engine power comes from the connection to a linear power curve with the extreme thrust of a double turbocharger. Enhanced intercoolers and the patented TwinScroll charging concept ensure a spontaneous response rate. The high torque is available across a wide speed range. The V8 jumps forward at every touch of the accelerator. Thanks to Valvetronic and High Precision Injection, the engine also sets standards for performance and fuel consumption. This results in an average of only 9.9 litres consumption when combined with BMW EfficientDynamics measures like Auto Start Stop function and Brake Energy Regeneration.
