Wheels24 managing editor John Oxley will drive the new M5 on Thursday and on Friday he will give his impressions of the car.

However, in the meantime we can reveal the price of the car and it will retail for R850 000. And if you want one, you better be prepared to wait as the UK waiting lists for right-hand drive versions are already about two years long...

The M5's V10 is the only high-revving power unit to be featured in a series-production car.

This V10 boasts a cubic capacity of 5-litres and produces a maximum output of 373 kW and a maximum torque of 520 Nm, making the M5 the most powerful production model in the BMW line-up.

The compact, high-revving normally aspirated engine boasts a red line of 8 250 r/min. Compared to the previous M5 V8 engine, performance has increased by a massive 25%.
