"Thanks to M xDrive, the all-new BMW M5 can be piloted with the familiar blend of sportiness and unerring accuracy both on the racetrack and out on the open road, while also delighting drivers with its significantly enhanced directional stability and controllability right up to the limits of performance when driving in adverse conditions such as on wet roads or snow," said Frank van Meel, BMW chairman, in a lengthy sentence.

The engine can be set to Efficient, Sport, or Sport Plus modes, and the sound from the exhaust system can be controlled to "further acoustic customization" with the push of a button. BMW says switching to the M Dynamic mode gives additional boost to the sedan's handling agility.

"In this mode, more drive torque is directed to the rear axle, while the amount of permissible rear wheel slip is increased. While doing so, the onset of oversteer is noticeable in good time and the linear increase of the sideslip angle means that the vehicle remains stable," noted BMW's release.

"Thanks to M xDrive, the new BMW M5 goes beyond the precise, agile drive that we've come to expect," said Timo Glock, F1 vet and BMW works driver, in a release adding, "It also serves up a noticeable boost in traction and controllability, both in everyday situations and at the dynamic limit."

You don't have to take Glock's word for it. European Bureau Chief Georg Kacher drove an M5 prototype three months ago and wrote, "Not only does this new M5 curve and carve through radii at whatever degree of ostentatiousness that appeals to you most, it also slides and swings out of corners with raw urge and determination. This adds up to a new quality of balance at the limit that makes for faster cornering speeds and more complete control. The key is in the flow, which paves the way for seamless motions and well-mannered drifts. Less drama and more fun is indeed a compelling new formula, one that pictures M3 and M4, for better or worse, as old-school tools. There is no doubt about it: way the M division has set up its all-wheel drive system makes drifting more manageable, elegant, faster, and more rewarding."
