New BMW M5 owes its unmistakable appearance to the design of its elegantly athletic body, which combines the dynamic proportions and stylish confident looks of the BMW 5-Series Saloon with an array of M-specific design features. These M-based modifications are designed to meet the technical demands of the new M5, and they are now considered as the focal basis of its high performance concept. The new M5 also conveys its impressive potential through a host of characteristic design details on the front, sides and rear end.
On the front, the inspiring power of its new V8 mill is communicated through the design of its front apron, the contour lines of the bonnet converging in a “V” to the dynamic double-kidney grille. The cooling needs of the V8 engine is highlighted by the wide-spread layout of the customary M black slats, like three air intakes located in the lower section of the front apron. These intakes are arranged over various levels to a depth that emphasize the high-performance saloon’s forward-thrusting looks.
The functional importance of the BMW M5’s central air intake is highlighted by the jutting form of the contour lines and the width of the high performance saloon. This central aperture is flanked by two side air intakes positioned to the extremes of the front end, taking up the spaces in the front apron typically reserved for fog lamps in the BMW 5-Series Saloon.
Boasting of a dynamically curving form, these two side air intakes help underscore the M5’s wide track. Meanwhile, race-track developed air-channeling flaps located at the lower edge of the front end help ensure optimized aerodynamics.
