2012 BMW M5 UK photos, video & price
BMW spilled the beans on the 2012 M5 back in June, so we already knew it would cost £73,040 when it went on sale in November in the UK.
But now November is here, BMW UK has decided – quite sensibly – that now’s as good a time as any to remind us of the fact and to send over a bunch of new photos of the M5 and a new M5 video.
Apart from a set of UK-specific photos and video of the new M5, we also get reminded just how appealing a prospect the new M5 is.
It gets 552bhp from its new 4.4 litre twin-turbo V8, driving the back wheels through a seven-speed dual clutch ‘box. It gets servotronic steering and adjustable dampers, power is up by 10 per cent and it’ll crack 62mph in 4.4 seconds.
We also get a look at the options on the new M5 – and their prices. Want a nice set of Silverstone Merino Leather ? That’ll set you back £5,440. M-Multi Function Seats in the front? Add £875. At the lower end of the cost spectrum you can have High Beam Assist for £130 or Internet access for £95.
So you may set off at £73k for your nice new M5, but it will take a chunk of willpower – and a disregard for resale values – not to end up spending the wrong side of £80k. Oh, well.
As well as the new M5 photos and video below we’ve also uploaded the 2012 BMW M5 Price and Options List so you can mull over the options to your heart’s content.
