All of the wheels, all of the power; meet the new 2018 BMW M5 Page 2


2018 BMW M5, 2017 Frankfurt Auto Show

Standard versions of the M5 will have 19-inch wheels wrapped with ZR-rated rubber that'll presumably hold on tight as the sedan reaches its optionally available 189 mph top speed (155 mph is the norm, if you need to know.)

The M5 will ditch its hydraulic rack-and-pinion steering setup for an electronic system with a noticeably quicker ratio. The new rack's speed has been quickened to 14.3:1, which is faster than the last-generation's 12.7:1 setup, but considerably slower than the competition model's impossibly fast 18.0:1.

You could say: "Wow, the new BMW M5 has become impossibly complicated for a sport sedan, now." But by the time you say those words, the M5 will be traveling faster than a mile a minute.
