BMW enthusiasts who embrace new-age hybrid tech will rejoice today! The highly anticipated 2025 BMW M5 has officially made its debut, setting new benchmarks in both power and technology. As the latest iteration of BMW’s iconic super sedan, the 2025 M5 boasts an impressive 717 horsepower courtesy of its hybrid powertrain, making it the most potent M5 to date.

Underneath its aggressive exterior lies a combination of XM DNA—a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8 engine paired with a robust electric motor integrated into the eight-speed transmission. This setup delivers a total system output of 717 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque, ensuring thrilling acceleration and dynamic performance. Despite its formidable power, the M5 also embraces efficiency with a plug-in hybrid option, offering up to 25 miles of pure electric range in Electric mode.

Performance aficionados will appreciate the M5’s capability to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds, with a top speed electronically limited to 155 mph (or 190 mph with the M Driver’s Package). Somehow we think it’s even fast than that as BMW is historically known for being rather conservative about their power figures and performance numbers. Still, the driving experience is further enhanced by BMW’s versatile drive modes—Comfort for smooth efficiency, Sport and Sport Plus for heightened dynamics, and Dynamic modes that unlock the M5’s full potential on the track.

Speaking of track prowess, the 2025 M5 features advanced handling technologies such as xDrive all-wheel-drive with a rear-wheel-drive bias, an electronically controlled rear differential lock, and active rear steering. These elements work in harmony to deliver precise handling and enhanced cornering capabilities, ensuring a confident driving experience even under spirited conditions.

Not just a powerhouse on the road, the M5 is equipped with cutting-edge features including BMW’s Adaptive M suspension, customizable driving settings, and an array of M-specific displays and technology interfaces. Visually, it commands attention with its widened stance, aggressive front fascia, quad exhaust tips, and a range of striking color options.

Despite its performance prowess, the 2025 M5 does weigh in at 5,390 pounds—a consideration that raises questions about everyday usability versus track performance. However, initial impressions from early testing suggest that its weight doesn’t compromise its agility and driving pleasure.

For enthusiasts eager to own the latest M5, pricing starts at $120,675, offering a blend of luxury, performance, and advanced technology. Deliveries are set to commence later this year, promising an exhilarating driving experience that combines raw power with refined engineering.

Stay tuned as we delve deeper into the real-world dynamics of the 2025 BMW M5 and explore whether it upholds the M legacy as a true driver’s car.
