Rumors say that the “BMW M Division will become the pinnacle of Efficient Dynamics, and also that BMW is ushering in a “Brave New World of Performance”.
Recent rumors say that the next M5 will have a variant of the V8 engine used by the X5M and X6M, tuned to have more horsepower and torque than the V10. The engine will be paired to a new dual-clutch transmission based on the M3′s gearbox. The driver will control shifting through paddles mounted to the steering wheel. Despite getting nearly 570 horsepower, fuel consumption on the new model is “expected to be between 25-30% better than the E60 M5.” That should translate to about 14.5mpg in the city, and 22mpg highway, a huge improvement over the 11/17 figures posted by the outgoing model.
Moreover, rumors say the fuel consumption will be kept low by using Active Aerodynamics at the front and in the wheel arches. Small turbines will be built into the grille to use the drag created by braking as electricity.
Another rumor refers to a Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS), similar to that developed by the BMW Sauber F1 team, will be used on the car. When pressing a button, the driver will utilize the KERS’ Twin Parallel Supercapacitors to provide a ten-second power boost. This system should appear on the BMW Active Hybrid 5 concept as well going on view in Geneva next March.
Rumors say that aside from a new stability system, look for the 2011 BMW M5 to get options like carbon fiber brakes, and carbon fiber roof. Bigger brake outlets, wheel arches, and new side air intakes can also be expected.
Consequently, the M5 concept is expected to hit the stage at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, with the production and market launch of the 2011 BMW M5 taking place just before the Frankfurt show later that year.
