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, … CONTINUED
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.
