DETROIT -- While the Big Three and their affiliate company displays were influencing delight and caution, the European names were just as adept to keeping up the pressure. One of the sharks swimming through such tested waters was the 2013 BMW M5, a sports vehicle which quickly caught eyes thanks to its smooth blue coating and its fishy features right down to the exhaust “gills” and small fin towards the back of the car roof.

In terms of power, the M5 was describe in provided “BMW Media Information” booklets as possessing a “maximum output of 560 hp” (horsepower), a torque of 500 pounds per foot, and the ability to go from zero to 62 miles an hour in just under four and half seconds.

These numbers are reached on a newly innovated V8 engine that features M TwinPower Turbo, accounting for consumption of “30% less fuel and… substantially higher range than [the M5’s] predecessors.”

In terms of access, all doors open with the pull-back handle option, yet it’s the trunk where things get interesting. The trunk door on the M5 comes with hand-pressed automatic opening, but the impressive addition located within the hood is a button that provides automatic closing. Initial tires exhibited on the model are labeled as “Michelin Pilot Super Sport.”

The vehicle’s interior includes beige seating and dark blue carpeting, but what’s more prominent is the multimedia stacked up throughout. In addition to traditional click-on lighting in the middle of the car ceiling, fluorescent tubes emit a whiter light along the sides just above the backseat doors. Also available for safety purpose is a grip handle above four of the five available seats.

The front seats include driver access to button technology for side mirror adjustment, sunroof opening and closing, and centralized air conditioning for both passenger rows. At the lower side of each seat facing the door, two knobs are available for adjusting both the base up and down and the backrest back and forth.

Engine initiation is accomplished by a vehicle start/stop button on the driver’s wheel, which also features a kind of computerized stick shift. The A/C unit features seatwarmers and dehumidifiers, the central compartment features jacks for phone, computer, and other services, and the dashboard system provides analog, compact disc/DVD, and satellite options.

The back row allows seating for three passengers with a seatbelt for each, A/C vents on the door sides, and a video-playing monitor on the back of each front seat’s headrest that can be pulled at least 45 degrees. The front seat’s backsides also include plastic holders for literature and cup holders, and additional speakers behind the front seats.

With the technology reaching a point of absorption for passengers, it’s certain that the 2013 M5 aims to be defined as not sport, but as a new level of luxury.
