This posting is just for fun, because like a dullard I was slow to react to the unveiling of the new Lamborghini Aventador.  However, seeing as I’m a massive fan of Lamborghini, and seeing as this is my blog where my rules apply, I’ve decided to showcase a gallery and two videos of the Aventador.  Enjoy the eye-candy!

It’s the new M5!

The new M5 has finally been revealed by BMW, and it looks good.

The biggest change can be seen under the hood, where BMW have switched the V10 for a 4.4litre twin-turbocharged V8 that puts out 555bhp and a massive 506lb ft of torque.  BMW promise that it is “lag-free” and gives a “trademark M car thrust”.

The new M5 has a seven-speed double clutch auto ‘box and three modes installed, with S1 being the gentlest to S3 where things get a bit more brutal.  In S3, the M5 clocks 0-62mph in 4.4 seconds and 0-124mph in 13 seconds.  The top speed is limited to 155mph, or 190mph with the “M Driver’s Package”.

On the M5 you can also find damper control, stability control, six-piston brake callipers and an “M dynamic mode”, while you can also programme two individual setups for the car and called up through the M Drive buttons.

In terms of looks, well… Take note of the 19inch M light alloy wheels, the rear spoiler, a rear apron with diffusers, flared wheel arches, intakes for the engine and brakes and the pair of tin exhaust tailpipes.  An aggressive super saloon that acts like it looks.

You can find the same stuff you’d expect on the inside too: sport seats, an M leather steering wheel, M-specific instrument cluster and the full options range from the 5 Series saloon, including a 10.2inch screen with iDrive control display.  Oh, and there’s also a head-up display.

Enjoy the M5 gallery…
