The 2012 F10 M5 continues cold weather testing and evaluation in Northern Sweden. As with our last F10 M5 photos, this one also wears a set of snow wheels/tires for testing purposes and are not the wheels we’ve come to know as the production wheels (which can be seen here and here). The mirrors you see are the production intent versions.

We were told that the speedometer topped out at 320km/h (199mph)

We have posted some older spy photos below (from the Nurburgring) which shows what the production front bumper and rear bumper will resemble.

The production M5 is expected to premier at the 2011 Frankfurt IAA autoshow in September 2011 (with an internet reveal a few months earlier). Euro deliveries will begin in November 2011 and US deliveries … CONTINUED

The first non-black FEP (final evaluation phase) F10 M5 prototype was spotted in September and we now bring more photos of an FEP stage M5. Its camouflage remains similar to recent F10 M5 test mules and the front and rear bumpers remain covered, but we have posted some recent revealing photos for reference. The mirrors and wheels are production intent.

The F10 M5 concept will bow at the 2011 Geneva show in March 2011 and the production M5 is expected to premier at the 2011 Frankfurt IAA autoshow in September 2011. Euro deliveries will begin in November 2011 and US deliveries begin in Spring 2012.
