The F10 M5 is powered by the lethal BMW bi-turbo V8 S63Tu motor outputting 560hp and 501 lb-ft torque. The specs signal that new M5 is good for some fast top speed runs, but how fast? This video demonstrates how quickly the F10 M5 achieves 196 MPH (315 kmh) – in just under an impressive minute.

This model is obviously top speed unlimited as the regular top speed of the F10 M5 is 250kmh (155mph) and 305kmh (189mph) with M Drivers Package.
