With the release of the new BMW 5 Series just around the corner, BMW have announced some very impressive and exciting new specifications.

The new BMW 5 Series looks set to lead the way in innovation. Taking note from the success of the BMW 7 Series, it has been equipped with the latest autonomous driving systems including cruise control, active steering and lane-keeping assistance systems, with the most significant progression in the parking assistant function.

The flagship model is set to be released shortly after the BMW 5 Series launch. The BMW M550i xDrive version “will be powered by a 455bhp 4.4-litre V8. The company claims the model will be capable of covering the 0-62mph sprint in just 4.0 seconds”.

The care and attention that has gone into the development of this new model is evident, with project manager Wolfgang Hacker stating: “We started to make every little detail better; from our perspective there is no detail on the car which is the same level as the predecessor. Every line, every point was discussed – that was the four-year task.”
