04 Feb BMW M550i 2018 Fully Optioned
This is another one of those nearly M cars, isn’t it?It is indeed: the M Performance treatment, which has turned out none too shabby for the M140i, M240i and M760Li, forged into the shape of the new BMW 5 Series.

With two turbochargers, no less.Isn’t that the engine that lives in the current M5?Well spotted.
