BMW 5 2017 Concept

The king of fun four-doors, the increasingly heavy M5 has plowed strange ground over the past two generations, both as the ugly and weird V-10 scream-droid and as the current turbo luxury cruiser. We hope that the seventh-generation 5-series/M5 will mark a return to the athletic poise of the much-missed E39 (1997-2003).

The M5 keeps the current 4.4-liter V-8, but with output boosted past 600 horsepower. Because the current 575-hp M5 is inhibited from posting quicker acceleration numbers by limited (rear-drive) traction, BMW will follow the tire treads of Audi and Mercedes-Benz and add four-wheel drive. Lesser 5-series models will retain their current turbocharged four- and six-cylinder engines. A new turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 is likely and would be in line with BMW’s current 500-cc-per-cylinder strategy.
