The current BMW M5 has been having a fairly tough time in the market, not because the rivals from other companies have finally caught up with it, but because BMW keeps shooting itself in the foot by releasing new M models (M3 and M6 Gran Coupe) that make a lot more sense than the M5. But things could be different for the next-gen BMW M5.
The next BMW M5, set to be released sometime in 2017, could potentially address all the issues that caused many to people to migrate from 5 Series to 6 Series and buy an M6 Gran Coupe to come back to the M5. It could shed a considerable amount of weight, get four-wheel-drive, and above all, look more interesting than the current version.
This is a speculative rendering of the next-gen BMW M5, and although it takes a conservative approach to face-lifting the car, it introduces a very cool look for the super saloon. Of course, it has always been the M5’s signature dish to look ordinary in spite of its immense inner power. But the whole ‘wolf in sheep’s clothing’ is a thing of the past. These days if you have a powerful and fast car you want everybody to know about it. And this rendered M5 does a far better job in that sense than the F10.
According to the latest reports and rumors regarding the specs of the next BMW M5, the car is going to get up to 630 from the existing 4.4 liter bi-turbo V8, and it will come with available four-wheel-drive. What’s more, it’ll be at least a 100 kg lighter than the current version.
