The 2011 Shanghai Auto Show kicked off yesterday and this year’s show highlights the importance BMW now places on the Chinese market. The F10 M5 concept and the 2012 6-series coupe both made their world public debuts. Also being shown for the first time was the F10 5-series plug-in hybrid prototype.
Check out the BMW sights and sounds from Shanghai in this video.
Here’s proof that it pays off to register at M-Power.com. We reported earlier about the opportunity to submit your dreams about the new M5 and thus get the chance to be invited to exclusive events. Six of the BMW M5 fans that registered at M-Power.com, had the chance to be the first customers to see the BMW Concept M5 at the BMW M headquarter. And while they where at it, they also had the chance to have a look at the BMW M garage – … CONTINUED
Today marks the public release of the all new BMW Concept M5 ahead of its formal debut in Shanghai.
Now as you may have quickly noticed, the word ‘concept’ sits between BMW and M5, meaning this car is not yet the full production vehicle. In typical BMW M fashion, first a “concept” version of the car is rolled out to the public, in order to showcase what the car will look like, painted in stunning Chrome Shadow. After this car has been shown to the world, … CONTINUED
We have added a live-look video of the BMW M underground garage for your viewing pleasure. It hopefully gives our readers a better sense of the mystique and aura of the environment, which only added to the truly special moment and the heritage of the collection of cars we were witnessing.

What makes for a great video? EVO’s Chris Harris and a pre-production F10 M5 on snow surely isn’t the worst thing to start with. Following two F10 M5 teaser videos on M-Power.com last week, this video shows Chris Harris going sideways in an F10 M5.
There’s also some more information on EVO.co.uk. BMW apparently confirmed with Chris Harris that the new M5 will have at least 555hp (that’s the output of the X5 M and X6 M) and that “there’s a seven-speed DCT dual clutch … CONTINUED
The countdown to the F10 M5 has officially begun. Here’s another teaser video from M-Power.com starring Dr. Kay Segler, CEO at BMW M GmbH, and some shots of a slightly disguised M5 during winter testing. We’re looking forward to learning all the details about the M5 in the coming weeks.
But, if that’s not good enough for you or you simply can’t wait that long, M-Power.com might have something for you. Register at the M-Power.com Closed Room and let BMW M know which dreams you associate with … CONTINUED
As we reported earlier, a new Closed Room on M-Power.com has just opened. As with the former Closed Room for the 1-series M Coupe, there’ll be tons of information and media made available over the next couple of weeks and months. Register for the new Closed Room at M-Power.com to have access to all upcoming information.
For now, here’s a first teaser video of the F10 M5.
Autos.sympatico.ca interviewed M division boss Dr. Kay Segler at the 2011 NAIAS in Detroit. They posed some direct questions, many of which our very own members have often asked and are most interested in. Below are their most poignant questions and Dr. Segler’s responses.
Auto Motor und Sport brings us a great F10 M5 video clip. This one features plenty of hotlapping on the Nurburgring and even some controlled powersliding on the wet track.
The most anticipated BMW Unscripted episode, featuring famed Nurburgring M5 Taxi pilot Sabine Schmitz, is now online! See how she got into racing (yes, she started in a BMW) and the Queen of the Ring’s thoughts on the M5.
The next generation M5 is set to become one of the most memorable M5s to date. The extensive on and off track testing is testament to BMWs commitment to making the M5 the best in class.
This particular video compliments our high resolution still shots (http://f10.5post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=429574) and shows off the superb body control and you get a taste of the engine growl as well.
The M5 is set to make its world debut at the … CONTINUED
This is a short but very tantalizing clip of the upcoming F10 M5! Drifting around a wet corner at the Nurburgring, the M5 sounds like it’s in the upper RPM range as it powers out of the corner. That’s the tweaked version of the S63 V8 twin turbo motor from the X5M/X6M you’re hearing, and we expect it to make 585-600hp in the new M5.
The 2012 M5 is expected to premier at the 2011 Frankfurt IAA autoshow in September 2011.
A must see for all ///M fans, this video provides a unique look into M Headquarters where prototypes are built and tested, M Design Studio responsible for designs, the M engine factory, and the M Test Center at the Nurburgring, and finally the vehicle assembly plants. Click through for this great video feature.
Well, here is what appears to be a homebrew video shot on the photographers way to the Nurburgring. He does an excellent job of shooting the 6-series and giving a nice level of depth to the previously seen spyphotos currently available ( http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=393022 ).
The next generation 6-series ( http://www.bimmerpost.com/6-series ) has been quickly shedding its camoflague in the typical BMW strip tease that presages an online reveal and then subsequent auto-show world premiere. … CONTINUED
[Updated with new video.] Well, as many of you know the new F10 5-Series is a big hit around the world making its way into customer hands slowly but surely. So naturally, the next big thing on the horizon is this F10 M5 that we’ve all been musing about. Ill let the video and the engine noise do the talking… BTW dont forget to check out our complete M5 coverage here: http://www.bimmerpost.com/m5/
