The 2013 BMW M5

2013 BMW M5 packs more horsepower than advertised

Even though the horsepower war raging across the global automotive industry is all about having a few more ponies than your nearest competitor, the act of underrating your big dogs is as popular now as it was in the 1970s – with the most recent news of a production car making more power than advertised being the 2013 BMW M5 sedan.

The 2013 BMW M5 is powered by a twin turbocharged 4.4L V8; an engine that is supposed to offer 560 horsepower and 500lb-ft of torque. This output makes the new M5 one of the most powerful sport sedans in the world but according to the folks at the BMW enthusiast community BimmerBoost, the M5 is more powerful than advertised – a whole lot more powerful.
