Jalopnik brings us these new photos of the BMW M5 test prototype spotted out testing. The upcoming M5 will be powered by a twin turbo V8 rumored to produce 578hp.
5post member Alpine325ci (Gerald Alvarez) continues his stunning M5 photoshops. What we’re seeing are not only beautiful impressions of the F10 M5, but also some of the most life-like versions we’ve seen. Full set of new images inside.
Has BMW M lost its direction? Seem so according to Kay Segler, chief of BMW’s M brand. He has recently let on that the M brand needs to shift directions - to make M young again. Segler’s goal “is to go towards affordability and freshness.” More inside.
Member Alpine325ci (Gerald Alvarez) has been photoshopping beautiful BMW renders for a long while now. He now takes a crack at predicting the new M5 (F10). Check them out.
With word that the BMW M5 will come in an F11 touring flavor as well, Artist and BMW fan Jon Sibal has come up with an amazing photoshop of what the F11 M5 may look like. He has in the past conceptualized an F10 M5 Sedan, take a look below!
Here are some more photos of the recently spied F10 M5 test mule. The striptease has recently accelerated with the uncovering of the front fascia from its previous camouflage mask.
The F10 M5 seen currently in winter testing has shed some of its front end camouflage to reveal more of the M5 than recently seen. If you look closely, you can make out the lower front fascia design behind the remaining black tape, which appears to cover the entire front bumper. Other external parts may yet remain preproduction version — the final hood will likely see a power bulge (a signature ///M feature), the fenders may yet be widened, the mirrors become sleeker, and the wheels will certainly be larger and a sportier design.
See these PREVIOUS PHOTOS for what the final front bumper and wheel design will likely be.

It seems that almost all prototypes for upcoming BMW models are currently somewhere in frozen northern Scandinavia conducting cold winter testing, and that includes the upcoming BMW F10 M5. Spotted here is the F10 M5 in Northern Sweden, testing its winter handling abilities.

I think I may keep mine for posterity It will be the last of its kind- N/A V10 , SMG gearbox plus one of the best all round cross continent cars out there today exceptional power , great speed insulated in superior comfort. … CONTINUED
