MotorWeek is looking for some treats at this year’s SEMA show. Among them, the 2018 BMW M5. The 4.4-liter V8 engine featuring M TwinPower Turbo generates 600 hp and 553 lb-ft of peak torque. The 6-th generation M5 starts in all-wheel-drive, but can also operate in rear-wheel-drive mode. BMW will be showing M Performance Parts for the new M5. The BMW booth will also feature a one of a kind 2018 BMW M3 30 Years American Edition. The world premiere marks the 30th Anniversary of the M3 in the US. SEMA 2017 begins tomorrow in Las Vegas.
A lot of Lambos are rolling off the assembly line. Lamborghini has produced their 7,000th Aventador since they began building them six years ago. The Aventador S Roadster is heading for the US. In the three years Lamborghini has been making the Huracán, they’ve produced 9,000. The latest, a Performante is going to someone in Dubai.
