    • The 2018 BMW G30 M550i xDrive is pretty darn quick - 0-260 kph acceleration

      This bodes well for the upcoming all wheel drive F90 BMW M5. The M550i also has xDrive all wheel drive and a 4.4 liter twin turbo V8. The N63TU2 powerplant produces 456 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque on paper.


      This is sent through an 8-speed automatic transmission. The new M5 of course will also have an automatic transmission and will lose its DCT.

      Sad for guys who love gear shifting interaction but great for those who enjoy straightline blasts off the line. The M550i certainly has no trouble hooking up and moves quickly.

      It takes between 27-28 seconds to hit the limiter at 260 kph or 161 miles per hour. It is going to be interesting to see the 1/4 mile times.

        It ran the quarter mile already. Someone took it to the drag strip and ran a 12.3 at 115 or 119 I can't remember which.
