This white 2012 M5 was spotted out testing today and is the first non-black F10 M5 we have seen. This signals that the M5 is now in FEP stage. Its camouflage remains similar to recent F10 M5 test mules, but its LED angel eyes are showed off nicely. The front and rear bumper remain covered, but we have posted the previously spotted mostly revealed M5 front bumper below for reference. All the other body panels you see, including mirrors and wheels are … CONTINUED
These pics include the best photos yet of the F10 M5 interior. We have yet to see an M5 with a manual transmission shifter. The M5 test cars continue to be spied and have already been showing their production interior, wheels, side mirrors, trunk spoiler, among other features. Its hard to believe that the new M5 will not be premiered until the 2011 Frankfurt IAA in September 2011, but it’s true.
This past weekend over 170 BMWs attended one of Washington state’s largest BMW events – the BMW CCA M-Car Day. TONS of photos inside by Johnny Lin. Plenty of eye candy for fans of all BMW M generations.
This is a short but very tantalizing clip of the upcoming F10 M5! Drifting around a wet corner at the Nurburgring, the M5 sounds like it’s in the upper RPM range as it powers out of the corner. That’s the tweaked version of the S63 V8 twin turbo motor from the X5M/X6M you’re hearing, and we expect it to make 585-600hp in the new M5.
The 2012 M5 is expected to premier at the 2011 Frankfurt IAA autoshow in September 2011.
Tuner G-Power has announced a World’s Fastest Sedan record with its E60 M5 G-Power Hurricane RR hitting a top speed of 231 mph (372 kmh), same top speed as the McLaren F1. The car achieved this with its 800hp / 590tq twin-supercharged V10 engine!
Here are some of the most detailed F10 M5 photos yet, including clear views of the likely production interior, wheels, side mirrors, trunk spoiler and other features. Rarely has the car been photographed parked and so up close. Only the few strips of camouflage tape remains. The 2012 M5 is expected to premier at the 2011 Frankfurt IAA autoshow in September 2011.

This past weekend, BMW opened the doors to its very first BMW M division dealership in the world – in Singapore. The complex is a showroom, dealership, and workshop exclusively for M cars.
We bring you the first ever photos of the 2012 F10 M5 with its rear camouflage completely removed, but what’s underneath is a surprise. It appears to be a 550i bumper (shown by the slanted rectangular exhaust cutout). Perhaps the 550i bumper is on merely for testing? Or is BMW having a little fun with us? Either one is fine with us as we hope the final M5 rear bumper design is more aggressive than this.

The M Flight Club attended M Fest Europe yesterday at the Mendig Airfield in Germany. The M Flight convoy was 20 M cars deep and consisted of members from Germany, Belgium, and Holland. The event was not a show-only affair, as there was also a road course available and a drifting competition. Photos from the event inside.

We bring you the most revealing F10 M5 photos yet. Save for some camouflage tape, the M5 front fascia design can be clearly seen. We last saw the M5s exposed bumper back in May, but not in this detail and not this exposed.
Compared to the standard F10 5-series, the F10 M5 front bumper is clearly more sculpted and angular, and features the trapezoidal design as seen on the current M3. Huge side air inlets flank the center trapezoid … CONTINUED
Here are the newest F10 M5 spy photos, featuring a new set of wheels which have yet to be spotted on the new M5 test mules. The next M5 is expected to utilize a turbo charged V8 engine derived from the motor used in the X5 and X6 M.
