[Video] 2025 BMW M5 Hybrid V8 Wows With 535kW Power

The new 2025 BMW M5 combines a turbocharged 4.4-litre V8 with an electric motor, delivering an impressive 535kW and 1000Nm of torque, outpacing rivals like the Porsche 911 Turbo S. The hybrid setup, adapted from BMW’s XM SUV, enables the M5 to achieve a 0-100km/h time of 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 305km/h. Watch the video below from Drive’s detailed review of the new BMW M5.

Despite its high performance, the M5 manages a fuel consumption rate of just 1.6-1.7L/100km, dramatically improving over the previous model’s 10.6L/100km. This efficiency is supported by an 18.6kWh battery, allowing for up to 67km of electric-only driving, ideal for daily commutes. Charging the battery quickly takes about three hours with three-phase AC charging.

The front splitter, lower side skirts, and rear diffuser contribute to its aggressive look and enhance its aerodynamic efficiency. The 20- and 21-inch wheels are paired with thick tyres to ensure optimal grip and stability. Inside, the M5 maintains luxury with a leather interior, digital instrument cluster, quad-zone climate control, and a large infotainment touchscreen. Unique to the M5 are features like a flat-bottomed steering wheel and customizable drive modes.

Additional features include an electronically controlled sports exhaust with four outlets, enhancing the auditory experience of the car’s power. The adaptive sports suspension ensures the M5 handles precisely, while massive brakes provide reliable stopping power. Whether on the road or the track, the bespoke chassis tuning aims to deliver an unparalleled driving experience.

Pricing details have yet to be confirmed, but the new M5 is expected to be pricier than its predecessor. The car will arrive in showrooms later this year and promises to set new standards in the high-performance sedan segment.
