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 … CONTINUED
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 … CONTINUED
Check out these beautiful renders of one of BMWs most hotly anticipated new M cars — the F10 BMW M5. The new M5 is expected to bow in one years time at the 2011 Geneva auto show, a year after the regular F10 5-series sedan makes its world premiere at the 2010 Geneva show next month.
Well, there is no end to the photoshops of the upcoming M5 that have been bubbling to the surface. The general notion is that the cars line will follow the E90/E92 M3 front bumper however it will be significantly more angular (think X5/X6 M) and obviously wider to fill out the larger 5-Series based body
This F10 M5 photoshop was posted by BMW insider Scott as he mentioned that the F10 M5 photoshops floating around have all relied too much on the M3s looks. Instead, its suggested that we look to the X5M/X6Ms "sharper" looks for the upcoming M5 and M1s design. We take this to mean that the M5s bumper will be more aggressive as in this image, rather than the M3-like bumper seen in most M5 photoshops.
