  • Blend of performance, dynamics and everyday usability
  • Lacks the raw intensity of the previous V10 model

Design

The M5 is much more understated in terms of design than the smaller M3 and M4 models and could, to the untrained eye, be mistaken for any other 5 Series. What sets it apart from the mainstream models are the quad tailpipes, small vents in the flanks and deeper front bumper treatment. In a restrained colour the M5 is won’t turn heads, but for many that’s part of the appeal. 

In brighter colours, such as Monte Carlo Blue or Sakhir Orange, the M5’s sporting credentials are more apparent.
