    Want to watch something strangely beautiful? We suggest the BMW M5 footage crafted by BMW of Canada in the video below. No scantily clad women, no overtly gratuitous tire smoke – just a 560-horsepower super sedan doing its best impression of a bullet. Shortly after getting "shot" out of a ...

    Report: Next BMW M5 to drop manual transmission option
    1340301480

    There is something very right about a rear-wheel-drive sports sedan with over 500 horsepower and a manual transmission, and yet few vehicles check those boxes quite like the BMW M5. Unfortunately, most M5 buyers prefer to leave their left foot out of the gear-shifting equation, which is leading ...

    1338551940

    Robb Report has released its annual Best of the Best issue, and the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 has been awarded top honors in the automotive category. No surprise there – the Italian supercar was chosen as the magazine's Car of the Year earlier in 2012. Prefer to go topless? In that case, ...

    Official: BMW launching M Performance Editions in the UK with three new Frozen matte colors
    1338505260

    If you're tired of the usual shiny paint job that appears on 99-percent of the cars on the road, a matte finish could be just what the proverbial doctor ordered. But while matte black is the common choice among the anti-gloss set, to our eyes, it can often look like someone simply forgot to apply ...

    Video: Chris Harris explains what makes his own 1986 BMW M5 so special
    1337967900

    The 70s were a definitive decade for music and movies. Fashion and cars, not so much. The 80s corrected one of those oversights, an era of ethereal supercars like the Porsche 959, game-changing exotics like the Ferrari Testarossa, and, best of all, everday cannons that offered mortals a generous ...

    Official: 2013 BMW M5 configurator revs up
    1337632320

    With a starting MSRP of $90,695, the 2013 BMW M5 is spendy to begin with. But loading it up with all the trimmings, you'll see a sticker price north of $116,000. And we know this because we just spent a few minutes playing with the M5 configurator, which is now live on the BMW consumer ...

    Pics Aplenty: BMW celebrates 40 years of M
    1337210940

    When we think of the BMW M division, the 1978 M1 comes instantly to mind, followed by the E30 M3 and then the 2001-2002 M Coupe. But the company's in-house hot rod shop actually dates back to 1972, when it was formed as a subsidiary to manage the company's racing operations, dubbed BMW ...

    1336753920

    BMW has posted two teasers to YouTube, previewing M Performance versions of both the M3 and M5.

    Video: Listen to BMW's new M5 with its Active Sound system enabled vs. disabled [w/poll]
    1335310080

    Pushrods and overhead valves or dual overhead cams; naturally aspirated, turbocharged or supercharged; it simply doesn't matter – there's nothing quite like the sound of a powerful V8 engine. Or is there? The engineers from BMW have been known to make some beautifully melodic powerplants ...

    Official: BMW M5 called in to service as new Ring Taxi
    1334752080

    There's any number of cars that can be used for taxis. The Ford Crown Vic, Nissan NV, Toyota Sienna... pretty much anything with a useable back seat, a cargo area and a roof on which to put a dome light. But a BMW M5? Surely that has to be overkill, right? Maybe for most taxis, but this is no ...

    Official: BMW to field 2013 M5 in One Lap Of America
    1332712800

    The new BMW M5 is taking a one-week, 3,300-mile U.S. road trip, and not only will it tour the skeevy diners, restless rest areas and truck-stop toilets of this fine land, it'll eat up its tires on nine of our nation's finest tracks. If you think that sounds like the Tire Rack One Lap of America, ...

    Geneva: AC Schnitzer rocks a matte blue hue with the ACS5 Sport
    1331163660

    The new 2012 BMW M5 produces an impressive 560 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque, but for companies like AC Schnitzer, the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 presents only a starting point. The German tuning company unveiled the new ACS5 Sport here at the Geneva Motor Show this week, managing to ...

    Video: Chris Harris + M5 + GT-R. You'll want to watch this
    1329354060

    Pitting the Nissan GT-R against the all-new BMW M5 is ridiculous. They're two different beasts in two different classes with two different purposes. It's a cynical, SEO-optimized comparison. And even worse, it's already been done. But... We can't help but post on it. Not because it's clicky or ...

    Video: This is the difference between a sports sedan and the GT-R
    1328824680

    Okay, this is an easy one. If we told you to pick a performance winner between the Nissan GT-R and the BMW M5, we're guessing the vast majority of you would pick Godzilla to come out on top. Both vehicles feature over 500 horsepower, but the BMW weighs over 400 pounds more, and the GT-R counters ...

    Video: Autocar gets sideways in the 2012 BMW M5
    1325466060

    The 2012 BMW M5 is something of an anomaly. Despite its size and weight, the big luxury sedan is actually quicker than its less corpulent sibling, the BMW M3, around a road course. With a 552-horsepower twin-turbo V8 engine capable of sucking down small communities, there's no arguing the M5's ...

    Autobild recently set out to settle the question of which M vehicle is the fastest in the BMW stable at the moment.
