The gleaming Marina Bay Blue paintwork on our test car, a commemorative colour, pays homage to the Marina Bay Street Circuit

What on earth has BMW done? Traditionally, the BMW M5 has always been a rear-driven driver’s machine built to be tamed, or built to tame… The new M5 loses its rear-wheel drive only setup, in favour of 4wd.

The new F90 M5 builds upon the impressively rigid everyday car platform of the G30 5-Series. Styling-wise, the new M5 retains the vent in the front fender, an identifiable design cue its predecessors also had. Compared to the standard G30, the M5 sports a wider track to accommodate its wider tyres and re-worked suspension. Bumpers are also styled more aggressively, with an opening, mirroring the its gaping grille, which loses its active flaps.

2018 BMW M5 Front

The gleaming Marina Bay Blue paintwork on our test car, a commemorative colour, pays homage to the Marina Bay Street Circuit; and covers just about all parts of the body work, except the roof, which is made of lightweight carbon fibre for added weight savings and a overall lower centre of gravity, and there is also no option for a sunroof.

2018 BMW M5 Side

Bits of kit like its M diffuser, rear spoiler, redesigned bonnet and M wing mirrors do the job of cheating the wind, or providing required downforce. Twenty-inch double spoke M alloys on our test unit, with 275/35 tyres are the car’s running shoes in the front, while the rear is equipped with wider 285/35 for added grip.
