This 2012 M5 was traveling at top speed and lost control of the car as he braked for a car joining the highway. The 60 year old driver, 20 year old passenger, and a dog were all seriously injured, but are alive. Judging by the severity of the damage to the car, it’s a testament to the M5′s safety technology that no one was instantly killed.
It’s easy to forget sometimes just how much power our BMWs have and while they are some of the safest cars in the world, we are all still human, capable of suffering injuries and making driving mistakes (or simply suffering bad luck). So please be safe out there! F10 M5 accident crash

Have a look at a Frozen Silver F10 M5 fitted with BMW M Performance Parts, in black and carbon fiber. The parts provide a nice contrast against the beautiful matte silver exterior and gives the M5 an even sportier character by de-chroming.
The carbon fiber trunk spoiler (which the owner replaced the factory spoiler lip with), the sideskirts (which replaces the flared factory M5 sideskirts) and kidney grilles are all from the new M Performance Parts lineup. This M5 has also been fitted with gloss black gill trim and the exhaust tips have been blacked out.
