The M5 has always been a balance between supreme luxury, blended with BMW's racing heritage. A balance between class and raw power. The BMW F90 M5 is the complete embodiment of both of those traits, without any sort of compromise in either direction. Direct from the factory, the F90 M5 comes with a 4.4L S63 twin-turbo-charged V8 packing 600 horsepower and 553lb-ft of torque - good for a 0-60 time of just 2.8 seconds. Not bad for 4-door family sedan weighing in at over 4,000lbs.
Although those factory-direct specs are certainly impressive, there are enthusiast owners everywhere who are looking to push their F90 further, faster, and harder. So what are the top mods for the BMW F90 M5? It's already agreed upon that the $103,000 base MSRP F90 M5 is a beast of a car even when driven right off the dealer lot. But this platform in particular has so much potential with the 4.4L S63 twin-turbocharged V8- and thats just looking at this vehicle from a pure performance perspective. This is the car that set the record for the world's longest drift in Guinness World Records, with a continuous 232.5 mile long drift. What more could someone want from this ultimate driving machine? The answer is simple. More power!
