Presenting the first look at the official F10 M5 production model! These are leaked F10 M5 photos from AutoZeitung, a German publication.

The F10 M5 production is barely changed from the concept version, featuring the same exterior styling, except for more streamlined side view mirrors and more aggressive sideskirts on the production model, as we predicted.

The official press release and full set of photos will come early next week, followed by the public debut at the M Festival (next Thursday, June 23).

We’ve spotted a black F10 M5 prototype conducting some final testing. It wears a minimal amount of camouflage and the least amount of cover we’ll see prior to seeing the production version. What you see is essentially the production version, including the mirrors and sideskirts which were not seen on the concept M5 model.

If you’re tired of seeing spy photos of preproduction M5s, you won’t have to wait much longer to see the production version. It will be revealed in just over two weeks time at the M Festival at the Nurburgring — on the night of Thursday, June 23rd (German time). Stay tuned!

Here are some new photos of an Alpine White FEP prototype. Looks to the M5 concept for a good idea of what the camouflaged parts will look like on the production M5, although the mirrors and sideskirts will be the versions seen on the test prototypes.

Expected to debut at the M Festival at the Nurburgring in just over a month, the F10 M5 will feature the S63 Twin Turbo V8, rumored to produce more power and torque than the equivalent X5/X6M unit while producing 25% less emmisions than the outgoing V10 powered E60 M5. Final technical/performance specs have not yet been revealed, but should come at its reveal next month.

Southern California appears to be a hotbed for FEP stage F10 M5 prototype testing, as multiple test cars are spotted each week. Another black F10 M5 prototype was just spotted last week (video/photos inside). The chase car was no slouch – an E39 M5, and it still had problems keeping up in the beginning of the video.

Although it remains clad in camouflage, we already know what the production F10 M5 will essentially look like by referencing the F10 M5 Concept, albeit with the mirrors and sideskirts seen here (which were not on the concept M5). Although the wheels have been painted black, these look to be the production wheels (the beautiful 5-spoke ones shown with the BMW Concept M5 are said to be available as an … CONTINUED

The guys over at M5Board got their hands on the first picture of the upcoming F10 M5 Engine Bay! This motor is at the heart of all the M5 speculation at the moment. What is known is that this motor is based on the Twin Turbo V8 unit currently motivating the X5 and X6 M. However, it has undergone modification for use in the M5 and BMW is clutching onto the exact power and torque figures, keeping us all in suspense.

The S63 Twin Turbo V8 is rumored to producing more power and torque then the equivalent X5/X6M unit while produce 25% less emmisions then the outgoing V10 powered E60 M5.

We are hoping to see this car debut at the M Festival in June, until then, enjoy … CONTINUED

Now that the BMW Concept M5 has been shown to the public, BMW has basicly unwrapped their test fleet of M5s– because we all know the shape. The benefit of that for us is that we get a preview of the M5 in a variety of colors, and so far we’ve gotten to see the car in Silver and White. Other popular colors such as Monte Carlo Blue have been shown off in the past, but unfortunatly with the body cladding still on the car.

Here are a few pictures of the next generation M5 in Black. Although the wheels have been painted black, these look to be the production wheels (The beautiful 5-spoke ones shown with the BMW Concept M5 are said to be … CONTINUED

Here are the first ever photos of the F10 M5 Concept’s interior. Clearly seen is the tachometer’s redline, DCT with Drivelogic, and unique M fixtures such as the M tri-color stitching and textured trim.
