Here is a “Very Blue” BMW F10 M5 professional photoshoot by the always talented and forum member TOMiRRi. Monte Carlo Blue is the official marketing color for the F10 M5 and we have never seen it looking better than in these photos.

The F10 M5 just recently hit the European market and won’t be released in the US until around September 2012, but as with most M cars, the aftermarket for new models from M seem to develop very quickly.

Kelleners Sport has just announced its fully adjustable coilover suspension kit for the newly released BMW M5 (F10).

The new BMW M5 (F10) boasts 560hp, so it’s no wonder there have been many high/top speed run videos involving BMW M’s newest model. Here’s yet another high speed run in the F10 M5, up to 270 km/h.

Past videos have run to higher speeds (300 km/h video and 315 km/h video), but this is still fun to see.

The BMW F10 M5 has arrived! In a member’s driveway that is. Congrats to Chris as the proud new owner of a beautiful Silverstone II F10 M5, the very first delivery on BIMMERPOST / 5POST. The silver beast will join an already impressive garage which boasts the M3 GTS and 1M Coupe.

Chris shares his owner’s impression with us inside, along with some great comparisons to the M3 GTS and 1M. And of course no delivery announcement is complete without photos, so there’s plenty of those inside as well!
