The daily commute. Some picture it as hours upon hours of bumper to bumper traffic, trapped in your little metal shell. You glance over and watch the person in the car next to you juggle their smartphone and a large order of hashbrowns while applying makeup. You face fills with dread. But what if there was, even for just a minute, an escape? Just a minute of pure adrenaline pumped into your veins as a surge of mechanical violence propels you past less fortunate members of society. To some Germans, this un-imaginable world of automotive detainment, known as the daily commute, is solved by one letter: M. On the Autobahns of Germany, there is only one M5.
With a 4.4 liter Twin Turbo V8 that revs to 7000 rpm mated to a seven speed Dual Clutch Trasmission, 560 hp and 502 ft lbs of torque are your tools of the trade. Work with them and 0-100 km/hr comes up at 3.9 seconds and 0-200 km/hr blasts by in at 11.7 seconds. Take this neighborhood friendly family sedan to the drag strip, and the quarter mile will scoot past in 11.9 seconds at 122.4 mph. As you enter a corner, the active M-differential distributes power to the rear wheels via torque vectoring ensuring you attain maximum grip. Enter a tight turn fast or make a quick lane change, and the power can be shifted to the outside wheels to counter act the loss of traction, reducing understeering.
You might ask again how all of this M5-ness might make your daily commute more tolerable? Combine the mass of aforementioned oily bits and add an interior cladded with rich Merino leather, Harman Kardon surround sound system, heated and cooled seats, a heated steering wheel, privacy shades and a heads up display as the basics, and the picture is almost complete. We can’t have the 300 km/hr commutes to work that some Germans enjoy daily on their Autobahns, but we can have a minute. Twice a day. That is all you need. A taste of what a commute should actually be. A quick surge past the sheepish blobs of grey steel, with a quick retreat blending back in with the herd. No one seeing anything but a blue flash in the haze of awakening at 6 am. They don’t know what the letter M stands for. Do you?
