BMW 5 Series:
The 540i Saloon.
The new 4.0-litre V8 in the 540i develops maximum output of 225 kW/306 hp and peak torque of 390 Nm/287 lb-ft, accelerating the 540i to 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds and providing a top speed 250 km/h or 155 mph. Fuel consumption is a moderate 11.0 ltr/100 km or 25.7 mpg Imp (composite EU cycle).

Top-of-the-range 550i with V8 power unit replacing the 545i.
The upgraded V8 power unit in the new 550i develops maximum output of 270 kW or 367 hp, with superb torque of 490 Nm/361 lb-ft at 3,400 rpm. The 550i accelerates to 100 km/h in 5.5 seconds, completing the interim dash from 80–120 km/h in fourth gear in just 5.2 seconds. Fuel consumption in the EU test cycle, finally, is a modest 11.1 ltr/25.4 mpg Imp, quite unusual for a car of this calibre.
Both eight-cylinder models come as standard with a manual six-speed gearbox. Six-speed automatic transmission with Steptronic is available as an option on both models, with BMW's six-speed SMG Sequential Manual Gearbox being reserved to the BMW 550i. 530xd Saloon/Touring: First 5 Series diesel with all-wheel drive.
The new 530xd is the first BMW 5 Series diesel with all-wheel drive, BMW’s xDrive all-wheel-drive system ensuring truly outstanding all-wheel driving dynamics and agility. The 530xd accelerates to 100 km/h in just 6.6 seconds and has a top speed of 242 km/h or 150 mph. Average fuel consumption in the EU cycle, in turn, is a mere 7.6 ltr/100km or 37.2 mpg Imp.

550i_e60_silver
BMW 5 Series with an even wider range of standard equipment.
New additional functions in the context of BMW's DSC Dynamic Stability Control such as Hill Start Assist, Brake Standby, Dry Braking, Fading Compensation and Soft-Stop will be standard in all BMW 5 Series as of autumn 2005. Further standard features are the bootlid opening function on the Saloon simply by pressing a button from the driver’s seat as well as the Engine Start/Stop button on the instrument panel.
