The BMW M5 has been un­veiled ahead of its show­room ar­rival early next year. Putting the su­per sedan on a more even foot­ing with the Mercedes-Benz E63S AMG, the Mu­nich man­u­fac­turer has opted for all-wheel drive and a torque con­verter eight-speed auto in a bid to con­trol its 4.4-litre V8 twin turbo (441kW/ 750Nm). BMW claims a 0-100km/h time of 3.4 sec­onds — iden­ti­cal to the heav­ier but more pow­er­ful Mercedes with 4.0-litre V8 twin turbo (450kW/850Nm) matched to a nine-speed auto and AWD. Price of the M5 is TBA.
