BMW is taking us on a blast from the past by reviving the cult classic M5 Touring wagon model after a 12-year hiatus. Recently spied testing in camouflage on the streets of Germany, the new 2024 – 2025 M5 Touring appears poised to deliver a healthy dose of nostalgia along with face-melting performance.
From the photos, you can see the M5 Touring’s aggressive front fascia, hunkered-down stance, and familiar kidney grille. While BMW is keeping most details under wraps, pack a hybrid twin-turbo V8 powertrain churning out around 800 horsepower – perfect for leaving pesky crossovers in a cloud of tire smoke.
Dubbed the G90 (the factory code name), the new M5 Touring represents a clean break from the outgoing F90-generation model. Industry chatter suggests this will be the first dedicated electrified M car, utilizing a combo of the 4.4-liter V8 and a 25.7 kWh battery with electric motor.
Unlike the sedan, we haven’t seen a Touring version of the M5 since the beloved E61 generation ended production in 2010. For wagon enthusiasts, this new model marks the return of the ultimate family hauler – one that can secretly smoke supercars on the Nürburgring.
While details remain scarce, the M5 Touring’s debut is slated for 2024 or 2025. Could an electric version follow? BMW flexed its EV muscles with the i7 M70, so an electric M5 built on that platform seems feasible. For now, the return of the M5 Touring is bound to get fans pumped. Stay tuned for more details on this vintage-inspired speed wagon!
