It looks much like a BMW 5 Series Sedan, but the new BMW M5 is actually a very different kind of a car. It is a sports car disguised as a friendly looking sedan. For the first time, the BMW M5 is now powered by a turbocharged engine. While the preciding M5 had a 5.0-litre V10, there is now a 4.4-litre V8 under the bonnet. The turbocharging not only improves performance, but also the efficiency of the car.
