Here’s the very first look at a production Imperial Blue Metallic F10 M5 (although it could also possibly be Azurite Black Individual which is also a dark blue/black color). Imperial Blue Metallic has a beautiful metallic blue hue to it when illuminated and is the darker of the F10 M5 colors. This particular 2012 M5 joined ///M Flight, an M owner’s club in Germany, this past weekend. Club members were given rides in the new monster 560hp M5 and got up to 187mph on the Autobahn! Photo set inside.

We hope you’ve enjoyed our coverage so far of the massive BMW exhibit at the 2011 Frankfurt IAA. And now you can also view the entire BMW press conference from the event. Inside is an English translated video of the kickoff press conference. You can really see how the full circle track in the BMW hall added a unique element to the presentation.
The 2011 Frankfurt IAA represents the F10 M5′s general public reveal and BMW has strutted out not just the typical Monte Carlo Blue launch color, but also in Moonstone (Individual color), and Alpine White. It felt like ///M heaven walking into the M area.
There was also a Monte Carlo Blue M5 being used to drive around the BMW track in the exhibit hall, as well as the F10 M5 Safety Car.
The Alpine White M5 was paired with a gorgeous Sakhir Orange interior with black piano trim, and optional enhanced seats. Each M5 featured blue brakes, which are standard
Also, to solve any confusion regarding the F10 M5′s steering, we confirmed that it is hydraulic steering.
Well, this looks like fun. We’ve reported about the six lucky guys who were invited to the F10 M5 Fly and Drive event earlier this month (one of them was 5POST member benz61). M-Power.com has just published a new video starring the new M5, Claudia Huertgen, a German race car driver, and some happy passengers. This video includes some nice drifts and thus obviously doesn’t reflect the fastest possible time for the car.
Enjoy the new M5 during a fun lap on the Nurburgring. Also remember that the new M5 will be available as regular Ring Taxi from 2012 on.
The once-every-two-year Frankfurt IAA auto show is nearly upon us. Press coverage will begin Tuesday, September 13. Here is a preview of the headline BMW debuts headed for Frankfurt.
We’ve posted the best sound/video clip and photos yet of the F10 M5 safety car, showing off its M5 Akrapovic exhaust standing still and at launch. Videos and photos are courtesy of 5POST member Bmill, who was one of the lucky VIP in attendance at the BMW M Experience at the Indy MotoGP this past weekend.
Our coverage of M cars from this weekend’s BMW M Experience at the Indianapolis MotoGP continues with the first exhaust clips of the F10 M5 safety car showing off its badass Akropovic exhaust system, the production F10 M5, and some more 1M safety car pics.
The videos below were taken during the M5 safety car’s police escorted drive from the race track to downtown Indianapolis, where it was shown off to BMW M Experience VIPs and passerbys.
We’ve updated with even more photos of the F10 M5 safety car, official safety car of the MotoGP, which is making its debut this weekend to M VIP at the Indianapolis MotoGP race.
The new photos feature the M5 safety car posing on the race track, as well as some pics from the police escort it received from the track to downtown Indianapolis. It drew quite a crowd in front of the hotel as you can see!
