2012 BMW M5 Takes a Lap at Laguna Seca [Video]
Here is one of the latest clips of the BMW M5 booting it on the Laguna Seca track. Oh how sweet the sound is!
The M5 has been entirely redesigned but the biggest change is the switch from a high-revving V10 to a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8. The new engine cranks out 552 horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque mated to either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. The car is capable of achieving a 0-60 time of 4.4 seconds, not bad for a car weighs around 4,000 lbs. Pricing has not been announced but the M5 will probably sell for around $85,000.
The minute and a half long commercial paints this car as nothing less than a monster as it knifes its way through the turns on a track.
Plus, we also managed to catch up with that very car, on display at Pebble Beach.
