Poised to reign supreme once again - 2012 BMW M5 Concept
When the first-generation BMW M5 arrived in the U.S. in 1987, it essentially created a new class of high-performance sedan. The super sports sedan concept continued to evolve reaching the point where the last-generation M5 came with a Formula 1-inspired V-10 engine.
The fifth-generation BMW M5 will come with a twin-turbocharged V-8, expected to produce around 555 horsepower. And even with the extra output, the new engine will get better fuel economy than its predecessor, with emissions reduced by 25 percent.
BMW has begun selling a new M Performance exhaust system for the M3 Coupe, Sedan and Convertible.
Will the 2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe be as impressive and exciting to drive as its inspiration, the E30 M3?
