Fifth Gear presenter Vicki Butler-Henderson has tested the 2012 BMW M5 F10. She took the most powerful BMW M5 ever made to the racing circuit in Pau and into the Pyrenees mountain range in southwestern France. Will Vicki be thrilled by the M5? Check out the video for her review and verdict.
Just a small reminder, the 2012 BMW M5 is powered by a 4.4 liter biturbo V8 with an output of 560 horsepower and 680Nm (502lb-ft) of torque. This enables the high-performance saloon to accelerate from 0-100km/h (62mph) in just 4.4 seconds. The electronically limited top speed is 250km/h (155mph), however it can be 305km/h (190mph) with the optional M-Drivers package.
