And can blast from 0-60 mph in just 3.6 seconds and can achieve a top speed of 155 mph. It’s got something for everyone. While many will opt for the plug-in hybrid or the turbo six, but the most enthusiastic one’s will go for the top trim V8 for the unimaginable driving thrill, great handling with precise gearshifts with an eight speed automatic transmission as standard on all models, the 5 Series is just a delight to drive with it’s spacious cabin full of luxury so that one wouldn’t miss out on anything. While all the models provide a great driving thrill, the top M550i has more comfort than just a regular BMW with a V8.
