There are some things you can’t get enough of, and seeing the new BMW F10 M5 in motion surely is among them. BMW UK has just released a new video showing a Black Sapphire Metallic F10 M5 playing in the countryside on some twisties. As an upscale executive sedan, black works really well on the new M5 and it will likely be one of the most popular colors.

The 2012 M5 will be available in Europe later this month, while US customers will have to wait until … CONTINUED

The F10 M5 is powered by the lethal BMW bi-turbo V8 S63Tu motor outputting 560hp and 501 lb-ft torque. The specs signal that new M5 is good for some fast top speed runs, but how fast? This video demonstrates how quickly the F10 M5 achieves 196 MPH (315 kmh) – in just under an impressive minute.

This model is obviously top speed unlimited as the regular top speed of the F10 M5 is 250kmh (155mph) and 305kmh (189mph) with M Drivers Package.

BMW has a habit of underrating their cars’ official power and performance figures. This trend continues with the F10 M5 which is officially listed as achieving 0-62mph in 4.4 seconds, but has now been tested by Car and Driver as hitting 60mph in just 3.7 seconds! It also covers the quarter mile in 12.0 seconds at 122mph [from the C&D December 2011 issue].

Compare this to the 2009 E63 AMG, with which C&D achieved a 0-60mph of 4.0 seconds and quarter mile of 12.5 seconds at 115mph. … CONTINUED

He then discussed manual transmission for the F10 M5, confirming that it is coming to the US next year, but also hinting that manual transmission will eventually not be … CONTINUED

This is my own first personal experience watching a review by Totalcar, but I have to say I loved it. The location, video footage and general hoonery is very Top Gear like. The presenter really hits on all the important themes and answered alot of my own questions about the M5 while having fun at the same time. By the end of the video, you can tell this car has really grown on the presenter and I think that says it all

The first reviews of the all-new 2012 BMW M5 have been full of praise (click here for an overview). Yet, some enthusiasts continue to pine for one thing – a manual transmission option. As reported before (and confirmed by an earlier set of spyshots), BMW will again offer a manual transmission for the new M5, likely for the US market only.

This new photo of the interior of a manual M5 unveils some subtle differences in the center console. The shifter itself seems to be fairly short … CONTINUED

As M cars’ power figures continue to climb generation after generation … CONTINUED
