The available optional features will quickly bump that price, though
Expected to reach dealerships and driveways at the beginning of 2018, the new BMW M5 has kept aficionados on their toes, and on valid grounds: 600 hp, AWD that can switch to RWD, and a waterfall of technology.
Since the M5’s prices in Germany were no longer a secret, the only question mark sat on its price tag on the other side of the pond, in the US of A.
Well, as of now, consider that question answered. A leaked dealer bulletin that popped up on G30 Bimmerpost mentions a starting sticker of $102,600. There’s a catch, however, as the price only applies to military personnel and diplomats.
But since the document is out in the open on the WWW, let’s have a closer look at some optional features available for the new F90 M5. There are four optional body paint colors, each available for $1,950: Azurite Black Metallic, Champagne Quartz Metallic, Almandine Brown Metallic, and Rhodonite Silver Metallic.
Furthermore, three packages add a suite of safety features as well as interior extras focused on comfort: Driving Assistant Plus Package ($1,700), Executive Package ($4,000) and M5 First Edition ($18,300). The latter features, among others, an M Sport exhaust setup, 20-inch M double-spoke wheels, Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround sound system and the M Driver’s Package. Rumors also suggested that the M5 Competition Package might arrive next year.
Other features available on request are the M carbon ceramic brakes ($8,500), rear seat entertainment setup ($2,200) and BMW’s night vision system with pedestrian detection ($2,300).
BMW USA should officially reveal pricing for the 2018 F90 M5 at the upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show, but until that happens, here’s a side-by-side static comparison between the new 2018 M5 and Affalterbach’s power sedan, the 2018 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S.
