As you know, hp rating is a bit more complex than it seems and thus each time a carmaker releases a new performance model, the world wants to find out how many horses it actually offers. This time we shall focus on one of the most dyno-anticipated cars in quite a while, the new F10 BMW M5.
The 2012 M5 will become one of the tuners’ favorite toys and thus a dyno run is a key elements that lets us know exactly what the starting point is. German aftermarket developer PP Performance has recently strapped the F10 M5 to a dyno, with the results being shared by 5post.com
The mean 5 met a MAHA LPS 3000 dyno and managed to record 450 hp at the wheels, which means that, at the crank, we have about 582 hp and 721 Nm (532 lb-ft). We’ll remind you that the official figures are 560 hp and 680 Nm (502 lb-ft).
Various other tuners have already started playing with the new M5, with one example being G-Power, which has already released the first info, indicating that its entry-level Stage 1 pack should give us around 620 hp.
