Watch The BMW M550i's M5-Beating Acceleration In Action

This 0-250kmh effort may not be a seamless, full throttle run, but it still showcases the M550i's M5-beating acceleration brilliantly

Remind me later

Being a bunch of speed freaks, the detail about the new ‘G30’ 5-series we like the most is the fact the M550i is actually quicker from 0-62mph than the outgoing M5. Hell, it’s even faster than the M5 Competition Pack on the benchmark sprint.

It hits 0-62mph in four second flat thanks to a 455bhp twin-turbo V8 and all-wheel drive traction off the line. And as we can now see thanks to this video, that initial acceleration looks damn impressive in the real world.
