There are just a few short weeks to wait before the first examples of the BMW M5 arrive in US showrooms. Last month, the pricing was announced to start at $90,695 and now we can dream of creating our own with the launch of the online configurator.

It allows you to custom your dream M5 with a range of interior and exterior colors as well as add in a few of the driver assistance and accessory packages. After having a play around ourselves we went for pretty much every add-on available leaving us with a base price of $116,482.

The new BMW M5 comes with a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine that generates 560 PS (412 kW / 552 hp) and 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque and is mated with a seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission. It allows the sedan to accelerate from 0-100kph (0-62mph) in 4.4 seconds and 0-200kph(124mph) in 13.0 seconds while top speed is reached at 305 km/h (190 mph) with the M Driver's Package installed.
