2017 BMW M5

Well, there is no need for some special introduction for this car. BMW M5 is a high-performance variant of company’s mid-size luxury 5-series. This variant originally came in 1985 and it was based on third-generation of 5-series, also known under the name E-28. Earlier this year, a testing mule of new 5-Series has been spotted and shortly after that, speculations about new high-performance model started. Current model is present from 2011, so we do not expect to see new model before 2017, so we will call it 2017 BMW M.

New high-performance model will come with new platform, which will provide massive weight savings. Most of the 2017 BMW M5’s body structure will be made of extra lightweight materials such as aluminum, HSS and carbon fiber.
