BMW M5 F90: V10 Engine - Actually there is no reason, now the BMW M5 F90 - the internal name of the M5 on the basis of the BMW 5 series G30 - to think: until about a year ago, the current BMW M5 F10 has its facelift and offered some time, the basis for the next M5 will not finally be before 2016. However, currently are rumors making the rounds after which the BMW 2017 returns M5 to a V10 Engine? Who wants to open now already a bottle of sparkling wine and thinks back with joy of the unique sound of the high-Rev V10 under the hood of M5 E60 and E61, M6 E63 and E64, should according to our information but a disappointment be drawn: all plans for the next generation of M5 currently assume a further developed version of the current V8 Biturbo with 4.4 liters of displacement.
The next M5 BMW returns to the V10 are extremely unlikely for several reasons. In the first place, the costs are of course; finally group is working at the BMW increasingly on a reduction of engine variants.
There were many different engine sizes and various options with regard to the number of cylinders, a few years ago further reduces this diversity in the recent past. Thanks to different strong boot completely different tasks can be covered with the same basic engine, the construction of a stand-alone V10 Engine for the ultimately manageable quantities of M5 and M6 would not fit here absolutely in the image.
Yet increasingly in future regulations concerning the consumption of the fleet are another reason against the V10. The CO2 emissions from the vehicle fleet must be reduced more and more, what with a larger engine with more combustion chambers although in practice is possible, at least in the EU cycle but ultimately decisive conditions can hardly be achieved. The logical consequence is sticking to the V8 Biturbo, whose basic engine anyway for the strong variations of the 5 series, 6 series, 7 series, X 5, X 6 and also X 7 is required. In a modernized version with probably no less than 600 HP the S63 will go also in 2017 at the start to the BMW M5 F90 and propel the technically related M6 models.
M5 customers on another area expected significantly more change than in the engine: handy safe is that next to the M5 rear-wheel drive for the first time a BMW xDrive all-wheel drive is offered M5. With this model, M GmbH responds to the fact that major competitors at least optionally having are with four drive wheels - and that the customers place great emphasis on the extra traction on some markets.
