A 4.4-liter V8 engine puts out 456 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque.

Power goes to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The all-wheel drive system keeps the torque biased towards the rear.

BMW claims the M550i can go from 0-60 mph in four seconds. Yowza!

There are some M Performance design accents on the front air intakes in a grey metallic finish paint, which is carried over to the mirror caps and grille frame.

The interior of the 2018 M550i is pretty much what you'll find on the current five series.
