Expected to debut in late-2017.

The seventh generation 2017 BMW 5 Series (BMW G30) was officially introduced yesterday. Now, spy shots from Autojunk.nl show its future flagship variant – the 2018 BMW M5. Along with the car’s exterior, its heavily padded sport seats which apparently has a white-black scheme, is also seen.

The 2018 BMW M5 is said to be powered by the same 4.4-litre M TwinPower Turbo twin turbocharged V8 petrol engine.

The sixth generation BMW M5 (BMW F90) reportedly is more about being lighter than having more power. The standard seventh-gen 5 Series itself is up to 100 kg lighter compared to the previous model, and a similar level of weight reduction is likely for the car’s high-performance variant.

Lightweight materials like aluminium, high-tensile steels, carbon fiber and magnesium will help in reducing the body weight significantly.

The 2018 BMW M5 is said to be powered by the existing 4.4-litre M TwinPower Turbo twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine. The motor should receive updates and have its power increased to around 600 hp. It will be mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, and the xDrive all-wheel drive system could give it company.

The 2018 BMW M5 sedan will debut in late-2017 and reach dealerships in early 2018. An M5 estate version is also in the rumour mill with BMW drawing up plans to take on the Mercedes-AMG E63 Estate and the Audi RS 6 Avant.
