The new BMW M5 is a high-performance sedan, offering the properties of a sports car for five passengers. With dynamic proportions – including the long hood and set-back greenhouse – its identity as a BMW sedan is clearly recognised. The design language of the vehicle is in keeping with the motto “form follows function”, whereby the authentic visualisation of its technical capability lends the vehicle a particularly aesthetic appeal.
Statement by the jury
»The BMW M5 leaves a persuasive impression by combining the classical elegance of a sedan with the dynamic formal language of a sports car.«
