Be sure to visit the show then

BMW M5

Well, turns out BMW will have the biggest crowd-drawer at the Manila International Auto Show this weekend. In the past weeks leading up to the event, Asian Carmakers Corporation, the distributor of BMW vehicles in the country, remained silent on the lineup of cars it was planning to display at the annual car show. But last night, we got a call from ACC executive director Glen Dasig, informing us that a Monte Carlo Blue M5 made it in time for MIAS.

"We had to airfreight the car just to make it happen," Dasig told us.

The latest M5--internally designated as the F10--boasts a 4.4-liter biturbo V8 rated at 560hp and 680Nm. Complementing the M5 at the show are BMW's other M vehicles.

Check out the M5 at the BMW booth at MIAS 2012, World Trade Center, from March 29 to April 1.
