...In performance testing, we've clocked the SMG-equipped M5 from zero to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds, while a manual-equipped car accomplished the same feat in 4.7 seconds. Estimated fuel economy, should one care, is an expectedly poor 11 mpg city/17 mpg highway and 13 mpg combined with either transmission. Safety: Standard safety equipment on the 2010 BMW M5 includes stability control, full-length side curtain airbags and front-seat side airbags. Rear-seat side airbags are optional.

The M5 is agile, easy to maneuver and spectacular in high-speed turns. The four-wheel, anti-lock disc...

...with three different driver-selected programs in each mode, including a low-speed assistance option that will help the car move smoothly through heavy traffic. There's also an automatically activated parking mode and launch control mode. For the first time, the M5 will come with a multi-plate limited-slip differential that intervenes rapidly at early stages to control wheelspin and to keep the car stable. Standard electronic control dampers are also new; this allows the suspension to switch the damping characteristics of the shock absorbers from Comfort, Sport or Sport Plus modes. There are...
