The premiere of the new, already seventh generation M5 took place literally at the end of June, and already at the beginning of July, ads began to appear on Russian classifieds offering to order the model, which had not yet entered the assembly line. Thus, Auto.ru drew attention to offers in Moscow and Vladivostok, where prices range from 16 to 26 million rubles. For comparison: the official starting price of the new BMW M5 in the USA is $119,500, or 10.5 million rubles at the current exchange rate.

The new BMW M5 with the factory index G90 for the first time in the history of the model received a hybrid power plant, the output of which exceeds 700 horsepower, which is a record for the charged “five”. The super sedan is driven by a 4.4-liter V8 with two turbines with a capacity of 585 horsepower and an electric motor with 197 horsepower, integrated into an eight-speed automatic. The total output of the units is 727 horsepower. The capacity of the hybrid battery is 18.6 kilowatt-hours, and it can be recharged from an outlet.

The dynamic figures are as follows: acceleration from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour takes the new M5 3.5 seconds versus 3.4 seconds for the previous generation M5, and the sedan reaches the 200 kilometers per hour mark in 10.9 seconds (versus 11.1 for the previous M5). The maximum speed is limited to 250 kilometers per hour, but with the optional M Driver’s Package it can be increased to 305 kilometers per hour.

In Russia, the BMW M5 is available for order in green (this is the most expensive option in Moscow for 26 million rubles) and in white for 16 million in Vladivostok.

The model is not yet in production, the official start of sales and deliveries is scheduled for November this year. Moreover, the configurator on the global BMW website has not yet been launched, so the full list of equipment is not provided. The Bowers & Wilkins audio system, the Sky Lounge panoramic roof, the projection display and four-zone climate control are mentioned.
