1000hp m5

1000hp m5 DEFAULT
  • BMW's next-generation M5 sedan will come in two versions: electric or plug-in hybrid, the U.K.'s Car Magazine reports.
  • The electric M5 will use three electric motors, producing around 1000 horsepower, and the hybrid will use a twin-turbo V-8 making around 750 horsepower, according to the report.
  • BMW's goal is to have 25 electric vehicles in its lineup by 2023.

Porsche has the Taycan Turbo S, which is the quickest four-door we've ever tested. Audi is getting set to reveal the 590-hp e-tron GT, and of course there's Tesla. But BMW, whose M5 Competition sedan rocketed to 60 mph in 2.6 seconds during Car and Driver testing, doesn't have a gut-punching electric vehicle, at least not yet. It is working on electric versions of the 3-series, 5-series, 7-series, and X1, but, based on a report from the U.K. magazine Car, it could also be working on an electric M5 packing up to 1000 horsepower.

The next-generation 5-series sedan, which will have electric and hybrid models, is set to debut in the second half of 2023. The new M5, supposedly also with electric and plug-in-hybrid models, will follow in 2024, Car says. The electric M5 will reportedly utilize three 335-hp electric motors, one driving the front wheels and two in the rear. The total output will be around 1000 horsepower.

The most powerful version of the 2021 BMW M5 is the Competition variant, which is powered by a 617-hp twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8. The most powerful version of the Porsche Taycan, the Turbo S, has two electric motors that produce 750 horsepower, and the Tesla Model S Performance makes 778 horses from its two electric motors. So BMW might be able to take back the quickest-four-door title in the next few years.

Plug-In Hybrid Also Expected

Luckily for those who aren't ready for the death of internal combustion in the M5, there will also be a plug-in-hybrid version. This M5 will allegedly use the same powertrain as the upcoming X8 M SUV: a hybrid twin-turbo V-8 powertrain producing around 750 horsepower sending thrust to all four wheels. Car and Driver contacted BMW, but a spokesman declined to comment on whether or not the electric and hybrid are in the works.

The electric 5-series isn't the only EV BMW is working on. BMW has said it is aiming to have 25 electric vehicles on the road by 2023. This includes the the BMW i3, i4, iX3, iNext, 5-series, 7-series, and X1 as well as the Mini Cooper SE.

1000 HP BMW M5 Destroys Porsche 911 Turbo S in Drag Race

We often say that the newest 911 Turbo is always one of the fastest cars in the world, but Porsche has outdone themselves this year. The car has won almost every drag race at the hands of CarWow, so the team has been forced to think way outside the box.

They've tried a whole bunch of drag racers, including the fastest RS3 with a stock engineblock in Europe. Today, we're dealing with another king of European dragsters, the M5. For about a decade, people have been extracting crazy power out of the twin-turbo 4.4-liter German V8, and the current model even has the AWDneeded to put it down. A Stage 3 tune from Evolve helping it deliver about 1000 horsepower. Mods include downpipes, forged pistons, hybrid turbos, and the obvious remap.

But is the most powerful M5 in the UK enough to beat a Porsche 911 Turbo S? This may only have 640 hp (650 PS), but we're talking about some of the best launch systems of any car, which can rocket you to 62 mph (100 kph) in 2.7 seconds.

After destroying their rear tires doing donuts, the guts finally get down to the business of drag racing. As everybody expected, the M5 really struggles with the launch. However, once it gets going, it absolutely demolishes the Turbo.

"The M5 is doing to the 911 Turbo S what it did to every other car before now,"Mat says. After that, the duo concludes that they need a Bugatti to play this 1000 hp games. Let's be serious; the custom M5 is fast, but not hypercar fast.

Is BMW working on a 1,000 hp M5?

When a rumour surfaces, it can mean something is up, or not. When the same rumour resurfaces a second time, and from another source, something is definitely brewing. This is the case with reports that BMW is working on the design of a fully electric version of its next M5; such a rocket ship that would offer a whopping 1,000 hp.

This kind of car would allow BMW to compete with Porsche and its Taycan Turbo S, as well as Audi with its e-tron GT, and of course Tesla with its Model S.

The new generation of the 5 Series, which will include electric and hybrid versions, is expected to debut in the second half of 2023. The M5, which will also be unveiled in various electrified forms, will follow in 2024. According to Car magazine, the electric M5 will use three 335-hp motors, one driving the front wheels and the other two driving the rear wheels. Total power will be around 1,000 hp.

At the moment, the most powerful version of the BMW M5 is the Competition variant. The latter is powered by a 4.4L twin-turbo V8 engine developing 617 hp. For its part, the Porsche Taycan Turbo S benefits from two electric units that produce 750 hp. Meanwhile, the Tesla Model S Performance brings 778 hp to the table from its two electric units. If all comes together, BMW could once again offer the fastest sedan on the planet in the next few years ... if the competition doesn't adjust before the arrival of this electric powerhouse.

A plug-in hybrid version is also expected for those who don't want to say goodbye to the combustion engine right away. In this case, we are talking about a V8-electric combo that would offer around 750 hp by distributing power to all four wheels.

Car and Driver magazine, which reported the news, attempted to contact BMW for some answers, but obviously the company declined to comment.

What we know is that this electric 5 Series is not the only vehicle EV in the BMW pipeline. The German automaker has said it aims to offer 25 electrified products by 2023. This includes the BMW i3, i4, iX3, iNext, 5 Series, 7 Series and X1 as well as the Mini Cooper SE.

BMW M5 1,000hp v Audi RS3 800hp v Porsche 911 Turbo S - DRAG RACE

1000 HP BMW M5 Drag Races M5 Competition and M550i on the Wettest British Tarmac

Does it really make that much power? It's doubtful the dyno test produced such a round number, but it's definitely in that ballpark. And bear in mind that means it might be lower, but it could just as well sit slightly over the 1,000 hp, even though we'd be surprised if that were the case. Surely, they would have introduced the car as having "over 1,000 hp" if it did.

Anyway, around 1,000 hp is enough to put it miles ahead of its two siblings that showed up for the race, despite all sharing the same engine. BMW decided to give the least powerful of the bunch, the M550i, 530 hp out of the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8, but strangely enough the same maximum torque output as the M5 Competition- 553 lb-ft or 750 Nm.

Moving up to the M5 Competition, its horsepower output is bumped up to 625, almost a full 100 hp more than the M550i, and as you're about to see, the gap is quite obvious. But maybe not quite as obvious as the one between the stock M5 Competition and the tuned one. The pre-facelift F90 M5 Competitionalso has 811 lb-ft (1,100 Nm) of torque to go with that crazy amount of power, which is enough to prevent it from using the launch control feature since it wasn't designed to cope with the extra grunt.

Depending on how you look at it, the comparison between the three BMWs is made either more difficult or more interesting by the fact the surface of the track is soaked in water, with the occasional puddle providing the unwanted opportunity to lose track.

If you're looking for a closer race, you should welcome the adverse conditions. If you want to find out the actual performance gap between these three, then you should wait for the rematch on a dry surface that will probably never happen.

Either way, witnessing that 1,000 M5 is nothing short of breathtaking. Even when it has a bad start, you just know it's going to come flying by at some point before you reach the finish line. As for the rolling start in manual mode, we'll just let you discover how that goes on your own.

M5 1000hp

The F90 BMW M5 is quickly becoming one of the most tunable performance cars on the market thanks to its robust drivetrain, twin-turbo V8, and switchable all-wheel-drive system. The F90 M5 is an impressive machine right out of the box, but with a simple tune and bolt-on mods, can challenge supercars. To put this tuned M5 to the test, the carwow team raced it against the 992 911 Turbo S.

The stock F90 BMW M5 is powered by a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, which produces 617 hp (460 kW) and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque. This power is sent through an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission and then finally a trick all-wheel-drive system that can switch from all-wheel-drive and rear-wheel-drive. This impressive machine elevates the BMW M5 to new levels of performance that rival modern supercars.

So, what happens when tuning an F90 M5 for maximum performance? In the Evolve tuning kit featured in today’s video, we see an F90 M5 with forged engine internals, hybrid turbochargers that are larger than stock, and a water injection kit to cool intake temperatures. This highly tuned M5 is putting down 1,000 horsepower.

Is a 1,000 horsepower M5 enough to match the 992 911 Turbo S, which is one of the quickest production cars ever built? Thanks to its lightning-fast PDK transmission and all-wheel-drive system the 911 Turbo S has one of the most impressive acceleration times of an internal combustion engine vehicle with a 0 to 60mph time of only 2.3 seconds. 

Can the 640hp 911 Turbo S keep up with a 1,000 horsepower BMW M5? Well, let’s find out in carwow’s latest drag race series in this battle of stock versus tuned.

BMW M5 1,000hp v Audi RS3 800hp v Porsche 911 Turbo S - DRAG RACE

The next-generation of BMW M5 will be the first M Division product in history to be powered solely by electrified powertrains. There’s a lot to unpack in just that one sentence. First, is the fact that the next-gen M5 will be electrified, with no pure internal combustion engine offering. Second is the fact that, for the first time ever, the M5 will be offered with two different powertrains. One will be a PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) and the other will be entirely electric.

So not only will the next-gen BMW M5 have a hybrid powertrain but it will also offer a fully-electric one. The former of which will have the same V8 hybrid powertrain as the upcoming X8 M. While the latter will only have electric motors, making a whopping 1,000 horsepower, according to this new report from Car Magazine.

BMW Power BEV 5 Series 21 of 26 830x553

This new BMW M5 is said to be built on what’s reportedly called the “CLAR WE” architecture and it will pack three electric motors, two at the rear axle and one at the front, for a combined 750 kW, which roughly equates to 1,000 horsepower. That would not only make it the first-ever electric M5 but also the most powerful M5 in history, by a good margin.

According to this report, BMW is also targeting around 435 miles of WLTP-rated range and a 0-60 mph time of 2.9 seconds. So despite having almost double the horsepower of the current M5, it really won’t be any faster. Having said that, it should be more realistically fast, given the instantaneous nature of EV acceleration. So don’t have a big lunch and then do some launches in the next M5 or you’ll have a mess to clean up.

As for the lesser, hybrid version of the next-gen BMW M5, it will get a V8 and some electric motors to combine for 750 horsepower and 737 lb-ft of torque. These are early figures but entirely possible. It will be the same powertrain that will power the upcoming BMW X8 M, the brand’s first-ever bespoke M product.

BMW Power BEV 5 Series 9 of 26 830x553

Don’t expect to see this anytime soon, though, as the next-gen BMW M5 isn’t set to debut until 2024. We don’t have any concrete information on this but the report comes from Car Magazine’s George Kacher, who’s usually as reliable a source as you’ll find. So while this information isn’t officially set in stone, take is seriously. The next M5 is likely to be a 1,000 horsepower EV.
