Take a visual journey through the BMW M5′s history. This video from BMW starts us from BMW M’s beginnings in motorsports and goes on to cycle through the various BMW M5s, from the E28 M5 to the current F10 M5.
BMW M5 Genealogy:
E28 M5 (1985–1988)
E34 M5 (1989–1995)
E39 M5 (1998–2003)
E60 M5 (2005–2010)
F10 M5 (2012 -)
The new BMW M5 (F10) boasts 560hp, so it’s no wonder there have been many high/top speed run videos involving BMW M’s newest model. Here’s yet another high speed run in the F10 M5, up to 270 km/h.
Past videos have run to higher speeds (300 km/h video and 315 km/h video), but this is still fun to see.

Autocar UK places Steve Sutcliffe behind the wheel of the F10 M5 for some BMW hoonage. Sure, a 560hp/501lb-ft torque RWD monster can drift, but the question here is – how far will it drift?
No surprise to anyone, the answer is FAR! According to Sutcliffe, the fast steering system and monster torque make the F10 M5 a cinch to throw around, and it shows in this video.
