The all-new BMW M5 produces a mind-numbing 552bhp from its twin-turbocharged V8 engine. That's enough to launch the 1870kg super-saloon to 62mph in just 4.5 sec and on to a top speed of 190mph when coupled with BMW's M driver’s package. In our second part to our teaser video, Steve Sutcliffe takes this handsome brute for a smokey spin.

  • Lotus Elise Cup 250
    First Drive
    29 April 2016
    The fastest, most track-focused and most expensive Elise ever made. It's simple, raw and immersive
  • Porsche 911 Targa 4S
    First Drive
    27 April 2016
    Slick looks, open-top fun and 911 handling sound brilliant, but the Targa has historically trailed the Coupé. How does the new model fare on UK roads?
  • Jaguar F-Pace 2.0d
    First Drive
    26 April 2016
    Jaguar's debut SUV wowed us abroad, but does it still impress as much here on the UK's roads?
