BMW M5 Touring not coming to USA
BMW will present at Geneva Motor Show the M5 Touring, that was unveiled a few days ago. The model will compete with models like Audi S6 Avant and Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG wagon. But again, BMW has announced that they won’t bring the limited-production model into the States. It’s not the first time the U.S. market has been snubbed: Back in 1992, BMW produced limited numbers of the E34 M5 wagon, but none for the U.S.
The M5 Touring is powered by a 5.0-liter V10 engine used in the two-year-old M5 sedan that delivers 400 hp. It features seven-speed M-sequential gearbox standard, along with an array of electronic driving aids, including an electronic controlled M-differential and a unique software program that allows the driver to choose between a detuned state for the engine. BMW claims 0 to 60 mph in less than 4.8 seconds.
