We’re happy to announce the launch of our newest site – M5POST, dedicated to the 2012+ BMW M5 (F10). We’ve also launched our official F10 M5 Photo Threads, which provide a look into every F10 M5 color (standard and individual, as well as the interiors).
Specific topic discussion subforums will be added to M5POST as discussions heat up for the F10 M5, so be sure to check out M5POST after the jump!
An alpine white F10 M5 has now been delivered to a site member – Singularity. Although the owner and car are now experiencing some wintry weather, we nonetheless get some nice insight and review of another new M5.
There’s now been several deliveries in our M5 forums and more to come as we head towards the warmer weather of Spring and especially when US deliveries begin this Summer.
Site member and owner of a new Silverstone II M5 (F10) shares with us some photos of his new beast, along with some emotional words on his experience so far with the new M5. Read on to see what a Ferrari F430 owner thinks of BMW’s newest F10 M5 model.
Well respected automotive reviewer Chris Harris drives the F10 M5 and the Nissan GT-R. He admits that the two are not really rival cars, but what’s important is that the two are both great cars he enjoyed immensely (just look at his reaction), and in which he appreciated every mile and every minute.
Site member clar, owner of both a frozen grey F10 M5 and E92 M3, has now completed run-in / break in on his new M5 and is able to give a proper performance review and comparison of his M5 versus M3.
See this excellent review inside as clar covers power, steering, handling, and more of his two M cars.
European Car reviews the new BMW M5 F10, which they call BMW’s twin turbo superhero. Their conclusion? The new M5 is every bit as tractable as the E60 M5 and its chassis and brakes are flat out superior. Unlike the E60 M5, the new M5 is more user friendly.
Ben Barry at CAR magazine was apparently on Santa’s good-boys list as he’s currently driving a F10 M5 long term tester. And although he’s only had a few hundred miles behind the seat of this new M5, that’s more than nearly anyone else who’s not a BMW employee. So what’s Ben got to say about the M5 so far? Let’s have a look.
This must have felt like Christmas for the folks at Autobild. Autobild knows what it takes to have a great story and has done a special edition on BMW M models, called “Fascination M.” In this special comparo, Autobild gives an overview of all current BMW M models as well as interesting insights into M GmbH. Most interestingly, Autobild pitted all (yes, all) currently available M models against each other on a German race track named Sachsenring.
The outcome? As you’d expect, the M3 CRT (it’s sold out but more info here) is the fastest M car Autobild has ever tested on Sachsenring as it clocked a 1:38.87 minute laptime (the M3 GTS isn’t available no more). An amazing second place goes to the brand-new F10 M5 … CONTINUED
While US customers are still waiting for the new F10 M5 to hit showroom floors later next year, European tuners have begun to have access to and tinker with the 2013 M5. Germany based tuner PP Performance have posted the first independent dyno runs of the F10 M5.
This F10 M5 put down 444 BHP to the wheels on a MAHA LPS 3000 dyno. This translates to an estimated engine power of 573.7 BHP and 721 NM of torque.
Other tuners such as G-Power have already got their hands on and begun tuning on the F10 M5. And with tuners already achieving 750hp with the S63 motor from the X5M/X6M (such as the Manhart biturbo M3), expect the same 700+ hp mark from tuned F10 M5′s.
