Looking for a luxury sedan that can provide plenty of luxury and cabin space? What about one that can blow the doors off most sports cars, too? Well, you’ll love the 2016 BMW M5. It packs up to 600 horsepower under its business-suit-like skin.
If you believe more of a good thing is even better, we think you’ll like the 2016 BMW M5. That’s because it takes a favorite hot rod trick of automotive enthusiasts through the generations (stuffing a powerful engine under the hood of a familiar model) to a level of performance and sophistication those early hot rodders could scarcely imagine.
To call this BMW a hot rod really doesn’t do it justice, however. True, it’s got the usual go-fast bits and pieces, including a twin-turbocharged V8 that puts out up to 575 horsepower, a beefed-up suspension and performance-oriented rubber for better handling, and just enough subtle body mods to add a touch of menace. But the hot rod analogy breaks down because the M5 is also a highly refined luxury sedan. Especially compared to previous M5 generations, this model puts extra emphasis on luxury, technology and interior room.
