The sixth generation BMW M5 lined up at the Frankfurt motor show to make its long-awaited public debut.

BMW brought two examples to Frankfurt, one in the new Marina Bay Blue and the other in a limited edition Frozen Dark Red colour. The all-new 592bhp supersaloon, christened the F90, based on the latest G30 generation of the 5 series will go on sale next February priced from £89,640.

 

For the first time the M5 is four-wheel drive, breaking an M-car tradition – recent SUVs aside – that goes back to the earliest days of BMW’s high performance sub brand. However, as we already know, M xDrive will still offer a rear-wheel drive only mode, albeit with no form of stability or traction control available if ‘2WD’ is selected. In that way it’s similar to its key rival, the Mercedes-AMG E63 S, which also offers a fashionable ‘drift’ mode.
