We’ve posted the best sound/video clip and photos yet of the F10 M5 safety car, showing off its M5 Akrapovic exhaust standing still and at launch. Videos and photos are courtesy of 5POST member Bmill, who was one of the lucky VIP in attendance at the BMW M Experience at the Indy MotoGP this past weekend.
Our coverage of M cars from this weekend’s BMW M Experience at the Indianapolis MotoGP continues with the first exhaust clips of the F10 M5 safety car showing off its badass Akropovic exhaust system, the production F10 M5, and some more 1M safety car pics.
The videos below were taken during the M5 safety car’s police escorted drive from the race track to downtown Indianapolis, where it was shown off to BMW M Experience VIPs and passerbys.
Here’s the full feature video we’ve anxiously been waiting for since yesterday: The BMW M5 Green Hell Drive and Fly event. M-Power.com invited six lucky BMW M enthusiasts to drive and experience the all-new BMW M5 on the Ring earlier this month. This video captured their experience.
We’ve also added some photos showing the making of this video. Enjoy!
As we reported earlier, M-Power.com offered a unique chance to drive the all-new 2012 BMW M5 before its market launch. This event took place earlier this month on the Nürburgring and six happy enthusiasts from all over the world were invited.
Enjoy this trailer and stay tuned for the full video coming tomorrow, August 25th.
The new M5 had recently made its way onto the track at Laguna Seca and BMW was kind enough to shoot some video while there. The bone chilling engine and exhaust note are more then enough to remind us that this car is the real deal and belongs at home on the track just as well as it does on the road.
The F10 M5 is of course BMW’s fifth generation of the M5 and newest M car to make it to market. The M5 packs 560HP and 501 ft-lbs of torque, all the information and videos can be seen in the official BIMMERPOST thread for the M5.
This is perhaps the best sounding clip we’ve heard yet of the 2012 F10 M5. Many people have lamented the loss of the iconic naturally aspirated V10 of the previous generation M5 and one of the reasons is the expectation that the bi-turbo V8 won’t sound nearly as good. This exhaust clip may go far in convincing some people otherwise however. F10 M5 exhaust video clip inside.
Here’s the best live action footage of the F10 M5, from full throttle runs on the Ascar Race Resort Track, to spirited driving in the Spanish mountains, and cruising in the city streets.
Attendees at the M Driving Experience at the Salzburg Ring were lucky enough to witness in person two of BMW M’s newest creations – the BMW F10 M5 and the limited edition lightweight M3 CRT. Both of these cars were revealed to the public for the first time at BMW M Night event at the M Festival during the 24 Hours Nurburgring race. Live event photos can be found here and here.
A Bimmertoday reader was able to snag these photos and some startup videos. The new M5 seen here is painted in a unique Individual Champagne Quartz Metallic color.
Here is a video recap of the very first M Festival and BMW’s 2nd place finish in the 24 Hour Nurburgring race.
