But the V10 is gone, forever, and this is the new reality because BMW has bet the farm on turbocharged motors.

Finished in full Marino leather ($4,500), the look and feel in the cabin was definitely on-point.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Performance

The motor seems to have available torque all over the place and will climb to redline so fast you better have your trigger finger on the paddle shifter.

The braking performance is phenomenal bringing this flying super sedan to reasonable speeds or to a complete stop in seconds.
by AutoBlog Canada (Feb, 2013)
These M brakes are monumental in stature as well with blazing blue powder-coating covering the six-piston fronts and single floating rear clampers biting down on cross-drilled 400 mm and 396 mm respectively.

Powertrain

In automatic mode, the three settings make the transmission shift schedule sportier, holding gears longer, speeding up the gearchanges, and engaging the clutch harder.
by Car and Driver (Nov, 2011)
The analogue dials are a welcome simplicity, they are surrounded by engine lights that may pop up and of course customized warming lights for everything from seatbelts, to engine oil levels to our personal favourite - the checkered flag of the launch control.
by AutoBlog Canada (Feb, 2013)
The rear of the vehicle is trademark M5, super wide with quad exhausts poking out on either side of the diffuser.

Engine

The 4941-cc S62 V-8 produced 394 horsepower while drivers enjoyed the luxury of high-tech (for the times) amenities such as ABS and navigation.
by Car and Driver (Nov, 2011)
When it got a V-10 for 2004, people longed for the V-8.
by Car and Driver (Nov, 2011)
The previous V-10 had an 8250-rpm redline.
by Car and Driver (Nov, 2011)

Interior

The leather-wrapped M-wheel is compact and easy to manipulate although it could be a bit less thick to wrap the average digits around.
by AutoBlog Canada (Feb, 2013)
The headrest has adjustable flaps that will allow driver and passenger to have bolsters for their heads while being whipped around turns.
by AutoBlog Canada (Feb, 2013)
Surrounded by Alcantara at every turn, the interior remains luxurious and virtually silent.
by AutoBlog Canada (Feb, 2013)

Body style

The aluminum hood is sculpted to perfection and functional creases also reappeared in the body along the sides of the sedan.
by AutoBlog Canada (Feb, 2013)
Traditionally these sedans were uncorked versions of the 5-series, hand-built in limited numbers to the open ares of collectors.

Traditionally these sedans were uncorked versions of the 5-series, hand-built in limited numbers... The M5 most certainly doesn't leave any confusion when it comes to the performance of the vehicle.
