Your F90 BMW M5 is more powerful than you think

This almost feels like the 90s when OEMs had a gentlemen’s agreement that stated that no car was to have more than 280-horsepower. As we now know, and suspected then, most made more than the self-imposed limit.

The difference today is that car companies are simply broadcasting a number, a BIG number, and programming their cars to actually produce more than the advertised number. Between you and I, I prefer this situation over the “agreement.”

In this video produced by Evolve Automotive, we can clearly see that the F90 generates 631-horsepower and massive torque, over 560 lb.-ft., from 2,200 to 5,750 rpm. The North American numbers, or ratings, are of 600-horsepower and 553 lb.-ft.

What the host mentions, and what will have us looking for updates, is that the new M5 has only 2,200 miles on the clock which means the measured output will likely climb as all the internals settle in place.

These days, my friends, are the golden big-power days. Enjoy them while they last.
