Twin Turbo Hybrid V8: High Performance Model
Development of the BMW M5 Touring is well underway; these recent spy shots show a model that’s receiving slightly less camouflage than those captured in the past. It’s widely expected this version will arrive by the end of 2021 or the beginning of 2024, when sales of the wagon will officially commence.
At first glance, the M5 Touring appears to have a standard production-spec front portion. Featuring an assertive fascia with large, trapezoidal inlets and air curtains on the exterior boundaries, the headlights have vertical side lighting.
Located just behind the B-pillar, this extended roof gives permitted for a streamlined wagon shape. Its curves help to preserve an attractive look, while the spokes of its wheels interconnect in a singular direction as they reach the hub.
Due to its wagon-like nature, the backside of this car features a hatchback. This improves its cargo space over the sedan model. The lower section has been designed with a squared form surrounding the quadruple exhausts – two each side.
Rumours claim that the M5 sedan and wagon employ a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 alongside an electric motor, producing 738 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque in the BMW XM Label Red. However, it is possible that these figures may vary depending on the model.
With merely a handful of BMW M5 Tourings produced in the past, the German automaker debuted its first iteration in 1992 with a V10 model making its appearance 15 years later in 2007.
The upcoming BMW M5 Touring will come to the market concurrently with two German rivals. Audi is preparing an up-to-date RS6 Avant, and Mercedes has a newer iteration of the E63 Station Wagon on the roadmap. Thus, if you’re eager for an agile long-roofed ride, it seems the foreseeable future has several promising options.
The filings that have recently come out of Europe provide an excellent illustration of the exterior styling of the conventional Five Series Touring. Even in its absence of fierce features, the overall outline remains comparable to what we can observe in these surveillance images of the M5.
