BMWBlog reported that the BMW M550i xDrive will be powered by a twin-turbo V8 engine that will allow it to deliver about 600hp when it arrives. They also added that with the engine, the BMW M550i xDrive will only need 3.5 seconds to go from 0-60mph. The engine will be paired with a dual-clutch transmission.

There is more. The site also added that the BMW M5 will come with a new mode that will allow the drivers to drift with ease. All they need to do is push a button and they can start drifting.

The BMW M5 will be coming in to compete with models like the Mercedes AMG E63.
