Spy Shots: Watch out RS6, here comes the BMW M5 twin-turbo
So while everyone is drooling over the brand new Audi RS6 Avant with 580 horsepower (understating the true figure of 600hp) that will be shown at Frankfurt this week, BMW is busy doing BIGGER and BETTER things.
Take a look at these latest spy shots of an extra-evil looking BMW M5 with, what spies say, twin-turbos. According to the photographer who took these pictures, the engine sounded more powerful and larger than the regular M5. If you take a closer look inside the lower intake openings, you’ll notice a vertical flap which redirects the air flow into what looks to be an intercooler for a turbo. Not to mention the extra vents on the top of the bumper indicate something amazingly powerful under that hood.
Of course we expect this baby to produce close to 600 horsepower so the Audi RS6 better not get ahead of itself just yet.
