Woodcliff Lake, N.J. – March 28, 2018… The all-new BMW M5, today received the prestigious 2018 World Performance Car Award at the New York International Auto Show.

The 6th generation BMW M5 is the fastest most technologically advanced M-vehicle to date. For the first time ever, BMW M GmbH provides drivers the opportunity to switch between 2WD to 4WD while also offering M x-Drive, BMW’s intelligent all-wheel drive system specifically tuned for the BMW M5 specifications. Under the hood of the all-new BMW M5 is the latest and most advanced version of the renowned 4.4-liter V8 engine featuring M TwinPower Turbo technology with an output increase from the previous generation of 40 hp and 53 lb-ft, this new engine develops 600 hp and 553 lb-ft of peak torque to promise explosive acceleration and formidable performance. The twin-turbo V8 unit propels the M5 via the new 8-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic and teams up with the M xDrive system to transfer all of the high-revving turbocharged engine’s might to the road, and allows a 0–60 mph acceleration run in a mere 3.2 seconds, making it the quickest and most agile to date.

Trudy Hardy, Vice President Marketing BMW of North America complimented the all-new BMW M5 during her acceptance speech calling it “the quickest (0-60 in 3.2 seconds) and most technologically advanced M-vehicle to date”. With the debut of first ever BMW M xDrive system with 2WD capability, the 6th generation BMW M5 is the quintessential performance sedan”.

The 2018 BMW M5 is available at certified BMW dealerships starting at MSRP 102,600 plus Destination and Handling.

Did the judges not see the CarWow video? Lol!

Best thing about the new F90 M5? The active seats now massage your back as well as your buttocks. Give that car an award!

I rather see M5 win Sport Auto or Auto Bild statistical comparison test than this meaningless (in my opinion) award

I really look forward to Sport Auto's supertest on the M5.

Agree. It's why I mentioned the "4.4 Liter Class" , as in the only sedan with that size motor.

Congrats!

(Though still secretly, not-so-secretly wishing it had standard RWD as an option & not the RWD on demand)

Annoying it has extra equipment to drive the front wheels, which adds weight. Would have liked to see them build an all-out sports sedan that handles and turns even better, but instead they are chasing 0-60 times in order to sell the cars to the business crowd.

They should have kept M X-drive as standard on the M550i and optional on the M5.

These awards are such BS.

Can't believe anyone actually takes these seriously.

The M5 needs a slightly more aggressive exterior but otherwise a great car.

I was initially surprised they didn't do this also.


But the E63 forced their hand.


Plus I guess you can always switch the AWD off at least unlike an Audi.
