The repertoire of performance driven cars in India have kept adding a number with every passing month. This month the BMW has made it pull down the biggest performance sedan in the country, dubbed as 2015 M5. Launched for Rs 1.35 crore ex-showroom India, this will rival the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG on a stern note.
Updates that M5 got for the 2015 model are subtle in nature; hosting low air intake is one of them amongst others.
The car will be brought to India via CBU (completely built-up units) or can be said as fully imported with no inputs from India. It is going to get the boost of 567bhp and 680Nm of torque from a turbocharged 4.4-litre V8. The drivatrain is controlled by a seven-speed dual clutch transmission and hits the 0-100kmph in 4.3 seconds with a fuel-efficiency of 10.10 kmpl (as claimed). Hence, all of these frill of speed thrills are controlled by M-designated three-spoke steering wheel and pedal shifters behind it.
Deepening more thrills of performance, BMW has added Active M Differential at rear axle to get the “outstanding dynamic-driving performance”. A wide array of safety equipments also make to the list. Anti-lock braking system (ABS) aided with braking assist, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Active Protection with Attentiveness Assistant & Active Headrests are some of them to name as of now.
Seven colour options are provided for 2015 BMW M5.
