We already know that BMW plans to show its vision of future transportation with the i3 and i8 concepts at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show that start on November 30th, and now its time to see what the M Division has in store for its Japanese fans.
Obviously, the car that everyone wants to hoon about in a sideways fashion has to be there, and it will be. Yes, the brand new M5 will make its Asian debut at the Japanese capital’s International Exhibition Center. This is the first turbocharged M5, powered by a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V6 with 560 hp going to the rear wheels.

Also on display with be the current generation of M3, offering 420 hp of pure naturally aspirated excellence, and an M GmbH creation which delivers its power via all four wheels, the X6 M, which “embodies the exclusive combination of a high-performance engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology and an intelligent all-wheel-drive system.”

It’s powered by the same 4.4-liter twin-turbo, delivering 555 hp, harnessed by a dynamic-oriented xDrive set-up and chassis technology including Dynamic Performance Control and Adaptive Drive.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
