We’ve stacked the F10 M5 up against the E63 AMG and CTS-V, but there are other cars in the segment which warrant further comparison, namely the Porsche Panamera Turbo/S and the Jaguar XF-R.

This comparison covers cars from a wide range of prices – from $80,000 to $173,000, but on paper the performance specs and owner demographics are close enough to compare. Again, the real tests will come from test drives, reviews, and direct comparos of the M5 against its rivals.

BMW has a good habit of keeping its production vehicles very close to their concept forms. This holds true with the just revealed F10 M5 as well, which is extremely close to its concept form. The only visual difference we spot by sight is the sleeker/smaller mirrors which were not present on the concept M5 and the more aggressive sideskirts on the production M5. The wheels are simply a silver version of the gloss black wheels on the concept M5.

We’ve put together a set of comparison … CONTINUED

Presenting the first look at the official F10 M5 production model! These are leaked F10 M5 photos from AutoZeitung, a German publication.
