2008 BMW M5 Touring

Posted Image

BMW’s hottest property at the Geneva motor show in March will likely be an M5 Touring (wagon) version of its screaming M5 sedan. The high-performance load hauler is set to compete against the likes of the Audi S6 Avant and Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG wagon, with power coming from the same highly strung 5.0-liter V10 engine used in the two-year-old M5 sedan.

As with the M5 sedan, the new car comes with BMW’s seven-speed M-sequential gearbox standard, along with an array of electronic driving aids, including an electronic controlled M-differential and a unique software program that allows the driver to choose between a detuned state for the engine, in which it develops 400 hp, or a peak setting that liberates its full 500 hp.

Angry looking little station wagons just don't do it for me, amazing performance or not. I have always hated the shape of the headlamps and basically the whole style of the car since day one. I still miss the handsome looking previous generation 5 series.
