For 2013, the M5 gets a near-complete redesign. This includes refreshed sheetmetal, of course, but also a more efficient yet more powerful V8 engine as well as a new 7-speed twin-clutch transmission. New levels of isolation are also apparent inside the new M5, so much so BMW pipes artificial engine sounds into the cabin to heighten the driving experience. Power-everything and loads of high-tech standard equipment complete the package.
