The first confirmed prototype for the next-generation BMW M5 has been spotted testing on the Nürburgring. A thin fabric bra covering the prototype’s front fascia can’t hide the clear M-style front-bumper design. With BMW M’s trademark quad exhaust set-up poking out from the rear bumper, and large, cross-drilled rotors accenting the beefed-up braking system, the prototype has all of the necessary ///M cues.
Reports still vary on what engine will power the next M5. Earlier reports spoke of increasing the displacement of today’s 5.0-liter V10 to 5.5-liters, perhaps augmented with turbocharging. With the arrival of the twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 engines in the X5M and X6M, new reports suggest that this engine may be on tap for the next M5 and M6 as well. <br /><br />

The boys over at spyshots.nl were tipped with these true interior snapshots of the upcoming M5. They actually went inside and snapped from the inside. Must be nice to get that close to the M5 this far from production! The exterior is still heavily armored and is no doubt hiding widebody upgrades as compared to the standard F10 5-Series.
The most recent rumors indicate that BMW is currently testing two versions of the M5 prototypes, one with a twin-turbo V8 and another with a V10 which is possibly twin-turbo as well! The decision on white powertrain will ultimatly go into the M5 is being made right now but in either case, the result should be nothing short of spectacular
Though no more cosmetically revealing, these photos show two F10 M5s in testing of both a V8 and V10 engine!
This is revealed to us by Scott26/7. However, which engine it will receive is not yet known. What a beast of a car this will be, regardless of which engine is chosen.
