The BMW M5 is a high performance version of the 5 Series executive carbuilt by the Motorsport division of BMW. Beginning production in 1986, the first incarnation of the M5 was hand-built utilizing the 535i chassis and a modified BMW M1 engine, being the fastest production sedan in the world at the time of its introduction. Subsequent iterations of the M5 have been built from each generation of the 5-Series platform, including the E34, E39, E60/E61, and most recently, F10, with the first orders delivered in late 2011.
On 15 June 2011, BMW released official press information about the F10 M5. Acceleration from 0 to 100 kilometres per hour (62.1 mph) in 4.2 seconds and top speed is limited to 250 km/h (155 mph), however, an unrestricted (limiter removed) BMW M5 F10 can hit a top speed of 205mph (330km/h). The car weighs 1945 kg, which is 90 kilograms more than the previous E60/61 model. Average fuel consumption is claimed to be 9.9 litres per 100 km (23.8mpg), which is a 31% improvement over the previous generation (16.4mpg). Other details mentioned in the report include an Active M-Differential with torque vectoring between the rear wheels and optional 20-inch light alloy wheels fitted with 265/35/20 front and 295/30/20 rear Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires.
