BMW Pulls The Cover Off Of A Pair Of Revised 600+HP M5 Supercars For 2021

In 1984 BMW unveiled the first M5 (E28): an up-specced 5 Series powered by the same potent straight-six used in the M1. Upon its release, the M5 revolutionized the “Super-Sedan” segment, combining comfort and performance into a highly-capable package thoroughly backed by German engineering. Fast forward 36 years and the Bavarian brand has now pulled the cover off of the latest, sixth-gen iteration of the iconic sports car with the 2021 BMW M5.

Carrying over the S63 engine from the 2020 model, the 2021 M5 packs a twin-turbocharged 4.4L V8 married to an automatic eight-speed transmission that together makes 600hp and 553ft-lbs of torque, allowing for 0-60mph times of 3.2 seconds. And while AWD is standard, the front axle can be disconnected, enabling the car to get sideways. Outside, the new M5 gets redesigned headlights, taillights, bumpers, and a revised grille, while inside the 2021 model gets a bigger 12.3” central touchscreen that features Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and realtime cloud-based navigation. BMW is also offering a top-shelf M5 Competition model that is equipped with an extra 17hp and a special Track mode that disengages the suite of electronic aids. Slated to roll into dealerships in August, the 2021 BMW M5 and M5 Competition start at $104,495 and $111,095 respectively.
