Watch championship-winning racer Scott Pruett in the 2013 BMW M5 Sedan as the tires, brakes, chassis, and powertrain work together to give him the ultimate grip, speed, and control of the 2013 BMW F10 M5 at Laguna Seca.

Here are multiple angles to observe the precise steering and consistent placement of the aluminum-intensive, multi-link rear suspension of the new M5.

Congrats to M5POST member Ilfan for being our very first U.S. F10 M5 owner !!! He just took delivery of an Alpine White 2013 M5 with Sakhir Orange interior in New Jersey. The 2013 M5 has just hit dealers and there are many other happy owners who will be taking delivery in the coming days.

We are in attendance at the 2013 BMW M6 Coupe (F13) press launch and press drives at the Laguna Seca Raceway. We’ll post our feedback on the M6 soon, but for now, have a look at some of the beautiful M6 coupes that were made available at the event.

We’ve also posted the slides from the presentation on the F13 M6.

We have been attending BMW’s track press launch of the 2013 M5 sedan, 2013 M6 coupe, 2013 M5 sedan, 2013 7 Series LCI (facelift), and Alpina B7 being held at the Laguna Seca raceway in Monterey, CA. We’ll be sharing our thoughts soon on some of these cars, but in the meantime, enjoy some photos of the F10 M5 from Laguna Seca. We focused on the Sakhir Orange M5 as it’s a new color as of the 2013 model year.

For real life looks at the other M5 production colors, see our OFFICIAL F10 M5 Color Photo Threads Master List

Resident digital artist Jerry Alvarez has put together this speculative side render of the F82 M4 coupe.

Although not visible in these renders, you can expect the F82 M4 coupe to receive the same (or very similar) hood lip/bulge that we recently spotted for the first time on the F80 M3 sedan.

Also not reflected in the renders is an expected sleeker front fascia and headlights (compared to the F30 3 series). The F82 M4 coupe is also expected to feature a carbon fiber roof.

The F80 M3 / F82 M4 will not be constructed extensively from carbon fiber (CFRP) as some earlier reports had speculated. Because this next generation M3/M4 began development two years ago, it’s said to have been too early to take advantage of BMW’s CFRP … CONTINUED

BIMMERPOST shares with you our short term road test review of the 2012 BMW F10 M5, taken place over two weeks of daily driving with the M5.

Some people don’t like change. But BMW isn’t some people (or even a person), so it’s no surprise that they don’t mind change. Take the new BMW F10 M5 for instance: The mighty yet rushed 1 Series M Coupe and some M trucks aside, the new M5 is the first true M car to get a turbocharged engine. So, is it still a true M? After 14 days and roughly 2,000km in a 2012 Frozen Grey M5, I think I can give my subjective answer.

Size Matters

The F10 5 series is neither small nor light, and the same holds true … CONTINUED

A 2014 M3 test prototype resumed testing at the Nurburgring yesterday and the strip tease continued by way of a possible (or intended) camouflage malfunction. Here’s what we see.

Air Curtains

By coincidence (?), the passenger side lower front bumper camouflage was flapped open during the test runs, revealing and confirming the air curtain vents on the F80. Whether the camouflage was peeled back to feed air to the air curtains for testing purposes, resulted from a camouflage malfunction, or was purposely peeled back to tease us, matters not. What’s important is that we get the first clear look at the air curtain vent, which appears very large judging by the amount of space between the air curtain vent outline and the outer edge of the still camouflaged … CONTINUED
