So we find ourselves introducing a car that, in the eyes of true petrolheads, hardly needs introduction. Or perhaps it does, considering that the F90 model evolved significantly compared to previous generations. The hard to please will no longer complaint about its ever-present traction issues as it is a four wheel-driven car now so the front axle joins the rear one in the task of handling the road. This is beneficial both to sheer usefulness and to the driver’s mental comfort – and yet still this is a car that requires complete focus when driven hard. To make things better, the driver’s workplace in M5 is well-thought and crafted with utter Bavarian diligence to ensure loads of driving pleasure. This is unique, not to be confused with any other car: the combination of an image of big saloon with bursting performance and perfect position at the wheel. Actually, the way all that encourages to explore the driveline’s unlimited potential makes us believe this car is too aggressive. We mean it so don’t suspect misspelling: it is too fast. You are in for a real test of balls… and reason!
