The revised sedan was nine seconds faster than the usual M5

The German tuning studio AC Schnitzer brought to the Nürburgring the fastest M5 in the history of the track. The 700-strong sedan, driven by the pilot Jörg Müller, drove the track nine seconds faster than the standard car – in 7 minutes 29.5 seconds.

The BMW M5 in the version from AC Schnitzer is equipped with a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, the output of which instead of the usual 600 horsepower and 750 Nm of torque is 700 and 850 Nm torque. In addition to the modified engine, the “charged” sedan received a rear spoiler, lightweight rims and an understated KW suspension.

The title of the fastest Nürburgring sedan still belongs to the hardcore Jaguar XE SV Project 8. In November last year, the 600-hp pre-production prototype of the car passed the track in 7 minutes 21.23 seconds.
