Yesterday, we brought you some spy photos of the
next-generation BMW M5 caught driving in California. Now, we
have some spy video of the new
F90-gen M5 caught driving around in Oslo, Norway.
Instead of just seeing one M5 in a few pictures, we now get to
see a bit of a motorcade of F90 M5s, as this video catches
three of them driving in a row. The creator of this video was
able to get really close to them, showing off quite a few
details. The lower front fascia features a lot of aggressive
intakes and the front lip is very low. This new M5’s mug looks
pretty mean and we’re only looking at it through camouflage.
The wheels and brakes on this car are the same as the
ones on the spy car we saw yesterday. It’s a bit odd, as
they’re quite small for an M5 and seem to be pulled off of an
F80 M3. But, again, this could just be for testing and the
final production wheels and brakes will likely be much larger.
BMW 530i M Sport’s wheels make these look small.
If you look really closely, as one of our eagle-eyes readers pointed
out, you can see the interior of the these M5s a bit. You
can just catch a glimpse of the passenger seat, which seems to
have a completely new design, unlike any other M car currently
on the road. It looks cool and different.
This next-gen F90 M5 will pack around 600 hp from a variant of
BMW’s 4.4 liter V8. All of that power will be sent through an
eight-speed ZF-sourced automatic gearbox and will power all
four wheels, via a new M-tuned version of BMW’s xDrive system.
It’s claimed that the new F90 M5 will be able to get from 0-60
mph in 3.6 seconds but expect it to be a bit quicker than that,
as BMW always underrated its performance figures.
