M5 watch: Heart of gold

BMW M5 engine bay

Back when the BMW X6 M was launched we said its only saving grace was the 4.4 litre heart of gold stored beneath the bonnet. Thanks to M5 board we can now get a quick look at the closely related heart of gold powering the F10-based Concept M5.

Still with a 4.4 litre capacity and a couple of turbos, the M5 engine is expected to produce a rather tasty 560hp (approx 420kW) while being more fuel efficient to boot.
