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.

This F10 M5 was just spotted at the M division R&D center. There have been more revealing F10 M5 prototypes, but this test mule features the first clear look at the M5 production wheels in silver finish. We have only seen it in a black finish until now.
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.
2012 F10 M5 prototypes continue to be evaluated and tested on the Ring. The M5 is set to make its world debut at the 2011 Geneva autoshow as the "BMW Concept M5", which would be a near production identical version of the car to show off at various shows ahead of the official production car launch in Frankfurt.
The car will be a 2012 MY vehicle and be powered by a special version fo the S63 V8 that is currently used in the X5 and X6 M albeit with further refinements and increased power output to make this the top car in the M car lineup alongside the next M6.

This time around, Gerald (Alpine325ci) unleashes the white F10 M5 through his skills and imagination. So which one do our members prefer – the white or black F10 M5? We’d take either!
Gerald unleashes the production F10 M5 in his latest work. Most of what you see here should be very accurate as they are based directly on the latest revealing F10 M5 spy photos. The render quality is again top notch, especially the wheels, which look spot on to the wheels in the M5 spy photos.
We bring you the best photos yet of the F10 M5 on the track. Spotted at the ring today performing high speed runs, the production front bumper is yet again exposed, save some camouflage tape. Some more design elements of the rear lower bumper also comes into view – particularly the area around the quad exhausts.
Also apparent is the more aggressive M5 sideskirts, rear deck lid spoiler, and the beautifully concave wheel wheels, all of which are production versions. The 2012 M5 is expected to make its world public debut at the 2011 Frankfurt IAA autoshow in September 2011 (probably with a reveal a few months earlier than September) and will be powered by a tweaked version of the S63 V8 twin turbo motor from the … CONTINUED
This white 2012 M5 was spotted out testing today and is the first non-black F10 M5 we have seen. This signals that the M5 is now in FEP stage. Its camouflage remains similar to recent F10 M5 test mules, but its LED angel eyes are showed off nicely. The front and rear bumper remain covered, but we have posted the previously spotted mostly revealed M5 front bumper below for reference. All the other body panels you see, including mirrors and wheels are production intent.
The 2012 M5 is expected to premier at the 2011 Frankfurt IAA autoshow in September 2011.

These pics include the best photos yet of the F10 M5 interior. We have yet to see an M5 with a manual transmission shifter. The M5 test cars continue to be spied and have already been showing their production interior, wheels, side mirrors, trunk spoiler, among other features. Its hard to believe that the new M5 will not be premiered until the 2011 Frankfurt IAA in September 2011, but it’s true.
