Report: 2011 BMW M5 Headed for Geneva Debut With 578-hp


With a new version of the 5 Series now headed to dealerships, BMW is preparing to launch the all-new M5, with the super saloon likely to debut at the Geneva Auto Show in March. According to a report in CAR Magazine, they have all the deets on the 2011 F10 model.

As expected, power will come from the same 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 that's found under the hood of the X5 M and X6 M. Making 555-hp in those versions, BMW's M division has reportedly tweaked the V8's output further to produce an incredible 578-hp and 530 ft-lbs of torque. That's a solid 150 more ft-lbs of torque than the outgoing model and known the twin-turbo application, its likely to come on almost twice as early as the high-strung V10.

As a result, the M5 should be able to clear 62 mph in roughly 4.4 seconds.

The new engine is also expected to be roughly 30 percent more fuel-efficient than the old V10, which really shouldn't be all that hard, knowing how gas-hungry the V10 was.

Additional efficient dynamics items like brake regeneration technology and advanced aerodynamics, not to mention the use of light weight materials, are expected to be a pat of the 2011 BMW M5.
