An Inside Look: 2013 BMW M5
The 2013 BMW M5 is the new symbol for fuel efficiency, eloquence, speed and state of the art technology. Integrating performance, fuel economy and luxury, BMW’s 2013 M5 is a dominant beast and a beautiful cruiser all at the same time.
Don’t let the 4300 pounds of car make you think this is just any sedan. It’s wonderfully different and much more comfortable and advanced than any of its kind on the current market, and Carlos Lago explains why in an informative video from Ignition posted at motortrend.com.
A Powerful Shark
The most powerful and fast M5 ever, this 2012 BMW is turbo-charged. In fact, it’s the first turbo-charged M5 yet. How fast is it? 0-62 in 4.4 seconds – fast enough for you? With its 4.4 liter V-8 engine connected to an automatic 8-speed transmission this baby hugs and cradles the corners like a mama bear protecting her cub.
Keeping a Watchful Eye
BMW makes immaculate vehicles of the highest quality. With a high price tag comes a BMW repair guarantee that ensures your safety and maintains the company’s stellar reputation.
The details are examined over and over again and when something goes faulty, BMW immediately takes action. Recently, BMW recalled all 2013 M5 and M6 automobiles upon discovering that there was a potential engine oil pump failure.
High Expectations Met
Not only does the new M5 have a gorgeous outer body, the brains behind the gadgets exceeds expectations. With five button control options on the shifting panel, each having three different settings, there are 125 ways to drive this car. On top of that, it has a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic with launch control. Be sure you understand what you’re doing, because it gets a little tricky at first.
- Stability Control
- Throttle map
The duality of the vehicle is balanced. While it goes 0-62 in 4.4 seconds, it also stops at 110 from 60 mph. From power sliding and drag racing to the brand new comfort mode, the M5 instantly goes from speedster to luxury sedan with the use of:
- Adjustable climate control
- Television in the back of the seats for the kids on road trips
- Night vision
- Lane departure warnings
- Cruise control
Ignition.com details BMW’s higher regard for the environment and how this 2013 M5 does its part.
- Power steering is electric, no longer hydraulic.
- Eco-Pro mode– dulls through auto responses and limits the intervention of climate controls.
- Dash display – allows you to monitor your energy use so you can drive more efficiently.
The BMW M5 comes alive on the race track but it leaves it’s skid marks behind. The 5-series retains its luxurious sedan features by creating a family and eco-friendly feeling. This is a driver’s car. If you’re a BMW loving power-pusher with a desire for a luxurious sedan, you will be moved, almost to tears, by the 2013 BMW M5.
