The BMW M5 has been voted “World Performance Car 2018“, making this the seventh time BMW has received a World Car Award from the organisation “World Car of the Year”.

The award ceremony was held on 28 March 2018 at the 2018 New York International Auto Show.

The BMW M5 is fitted with the latest version of the 4.4-litre V8 engine with M Twin Power Turbo Technology.

An output of 441kW and a maximum torque of 750Nm guarantee supreme propulsion and phenomenal driving performance: the V8 biturbo engine accelerates the M5 from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds.

The new M5 features the M specific all-wheel drive system M xDrive. Power transmission is taken care of by the new 8-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic: in conjunction with M xDrive, this ensures the power of the high-revving turbocharged engine is transferred to the road in perfect fashion..
