Thanks to a powerful twin-turbocharged V8 engine, the 2016 BMW M5 can rocket from 0-60 mph in an astonishing 3.9 seconds.
The 2016 BMW M5 is everything you could imagine when you think “European supercar.” It’s got nimble, athletic handling, a comfortably upscale interior, and a powerful-yet-classy V8 engine under the hood. However, it isn’t until you step on the gas pedal that this awesome machine really comes to life.
The 2016 BMW M5 needs only 3.9 seconds to zoom from 0-60 mph. Furthermore, it can hit 100 mph in 8.7 seconds and achieves a quarter-mile time of 12.1 seconds.
Which BMW M5 engine is the fastest?
The BMW M5 is different from many other high-powered Bimmers in that it only has one available engine—a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 (560-hp, 500 lb-ft of torque). However, BMW does offer a Competition package that boosts and fine-tunes the engine to have 15 extra horsepower. If you can find a pre-owned 2016 M5 with the Competition package included, you can expect it to be a little more powerful than average.
Can it beat the competition?
The 2016 M5 might be fast thanks to its high build quality and standard V8 engine, but unfortunately, it still lags behind the competition.
Let’s take a look at the 0-60 times for some of the M5’s major competitors:
As you can see, the M5 is ever so slightly outmatched by the other supercars on this list. Take note, however, that it’s an extremely tight race, as none of these competitors beat the M5 by more than a full second. So, if you still want a great German-made car with a powerful engine and an upscale build quality, you can usually find a used 2016 M5 for somewhere between $55,000 and $60,000.
