Disappearing for two years, the BMW M5 Sedan and M6 Coupe have returned to showrooms in North America. Joining the ranks of the M6 Convertible, showrooms are now packed with more performance and quality in the history of BMW M GmbH.

The new M5 and M6 are powered by a TwinPower Turbo V8 with 10% more horsepower, 30% more torque and an additional 25% more fuel efficiency. The 4.4-liter engine develops a peak output of 560 hp (412 kW) at 5,750 – 7,000 rpm (versus 555 hp at 6,000 rpm for the S63), while its maximum torque of 500 lb-ft (680 Nm) is on tap between 1,500 and 5,750 rpm (versus 500 lb-ft from 1,500 to 5650 rpm for the S63). The rev limiter intervenes at 7,200 rpm (up 200 rpm from the S63 engine).

Making sure that power is transferred effectively to the pavement a new 7-speed M-Double Clutch Transmission (M-DCT) was installed. We can confirm that this is one fun and rambunctious combination (Feature Article in December Issue). But incase the flappy paddles isn’t your style, a 6-speed manual transmission is available at no additional cost.

Other features include the standard M5 wheel and tire combination is a19 in. M specific light alloy wheels fitted with 265/40 R19 tires in the front and 295/40 R 19 tires at the rear. 20-in 20-inch forged M light-alloy wheels can again be ordered as an option. For the first time in the history of BMW M, both the M6 Coupe and Convertible can be equipped with optional M Carbon-Ceramic brakes (410mm discs with six-piston front and 396mm discs with single-piston floating caliper rear).

Outside, you can expect the usual BMW M body treatments. A wider and more “gaping mouth” front bumper and rear quad tipped exhaust with integrated diffuser amount to a car that is identifiably M.

Inside, customized M sports seats, Merino extended leather upholstery, door sills with “M5” lettering, an M driver’s footrest, exclusive Aluminum Trace interior trim strips and the BMW Individual roof liner in Anthracite are all standard equipment, as is the iDrive control system with a 10.2-inch Control Display.

If you want to experience the new M5 and M6 you can enroll in an M School at the BMW Performance Center in Spartanburg, SC. Visit http://www.bmwusa.com/performancecenter for more information.
