BMW M5 Sedan: Active M Differential

Active M Differential.

Get more traction and greater stability when cornering – even on snow, gravel or ice. The Active M Differential supplies optimum traction and supports the dynamic purity of rear-wheel drive – both when accelerating out of corners and maneuvering on slippery surfaces.

The Active M Differential offers precise handling in cases of extreme lateral acceleration or uneven road surfaces. The active system is connected to the DSC by an electronic control element and proactively imposes an intelligent locking action – completely independent of the differences in rotational speed between the right and left rear wheel. The results of this channeling of drive power are optimum traction and better handling, as well as increased agility.
