The automotive world has always known only two variants of the E34 M5 – sedan and touring… until now. As recently revealed to select journalists during a 25 year M5 celebration, BMW has actually also built a convertible E34 M5 and was all set to put it into production.

I wonder what other secret cars BMW has built but is keeping inside its vault
A one-off lightweight E60 M5 CSL was unveiled today at BMWs Nurburgring based prototype workshop. This car was built to commemorate the 5-series 25th anniversary.

You pay a fee, and a professional BMW driver will take you out in an M5 and show you the time of your life. The cost is steep, but well worth it…
With the flurry of new spyshots last week of the upcoming 2011-2012 BMW M5 weve now gotten a great look at the shape of the M5s front end. Now the guys over at spyshots.nl have posted up some video to go along with the photos which give some perspective views of the car as it nails corners and hear the engine rev on the straights and powering out of turns.
