We have the first details of the third reported crash involving a new 2013 BMW M5, which took place yesterday near the town of Soesterberg in the Netherlands.
Despite this being only the third known crash of the new M5, it’s the second to have occurred in the Netherlands.
The previous took place back in January and was somewhat minor compared to this latest crash.
The white M5 pictured above belonged to Dutch DJ Headhunterz, who despite being a fan of drifting wasn’t the person driving the car when it crashed. In fact, he was in the U.S. at the time of the crash.
According to Autoblog.nl, there were four people in the car when its driver lost control and crashed into a roadside tree.
Headhunterz has since posted the following message on his Facebook page, “Just received the news That crashed my car. Noone got hurt, thats what matters. Life will keep on challenging you, I'll just deal with it.”
He is believed to have taken delivery of the car only in February.
Like all 2013 BMW M5’s sold in Europe, the car was powered by a twin-turbocharged V-8 engine rated at 560 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque. Before being wrecked it would have been able to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 4.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 190 mph.
