BMW has a good habit of keeping its production vehicles very close to their concept forms. This holds true with the just revealed F10 M5 as well, which is extremely close to its concept form. The only visual difference we spot by sight is the sleeker/smaller mirrors which were not present on the concept M5 and the more aggressive sideskirts on the production M5. The wheels are simply a silver version of the gloss black wheels on the concept M5.

We’ve put together a set of comparison photos to illustrate just how close the two designs are. For full details on the production F10 M5 so far, see the official thread.

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).

One of the most oft asked question regarding the upcoming F10 M5 production car is whether it will come with a manual transmission option. BMW has already announced that the F10 M5 will have a 7-speed DCT transmission, but has been mum on confirming whether or not a 6-speed manual would be made available.

With these photos, it now appears that indeed there will likely be a manual transmission option. Manual purists rejoice! It’s certainly odd seeing a stick shift next to an electronic e-brake, but we’ll take manual option regardless. A manual transmission would be mated to the F10 M5′s turbo 4.4L V8 with northwards of potentially more than 560hp.

Also, why is the gear pattern covered? Likely to hide the car’s identity as … CONTINUED

The F10 M5 production model will be debuting at next month’s BMW M Festival at the Nurburgring (from June 23-26) and BMW continues to release teasers about this debut. Seen below is the latest video teaser from BMW, which leaves little doubt that the production F10 M5 will be revealed live for the first time at the M Festival. Not much new in this video, but we do get a look on video for the first time, the beautiful Monte Carlo Blue M5.

Also expected to make its world debut at the event will be the lightweight M3 EVO sedan.

Very first spyshots allowing a clear look at the F10 M5′s ceramic composite brakes. We’ve spied F10 M5 prototypes quite often lately, but BMW still manages to show some surprise from mule to mule. Here are the very first spyshots allowing a clear look at the F10 M5′s anticipated ceramic composite brakes. Yes, you’ve read this correctly – BMW finally joins the pack and offers ceramic brake discs starting with the F10 M5. We’ve added side-to-side shots with the brakes as seen on the M5 Concept to point out the differences, including the jagged surface of ceramic and a different drilling with smaller holes. This will be a popular yet expensive option.

With the new M5 just around the corner, alot of members are probably thinking about the details such as what options to get, and most importantly, what color! 5Post member, Weird Side Effect, proposes the question, what color should he get his M5 in?

M-Power.com has just published a new video of the F10 M5 at BMW’s own racetrack in Miramas, France. BMW gives us another glimpse at the testing procedures they perform, including high speed (> 300 km/h or 190mph), launch control vs. smoky burnout, wet handling course and general performance testing. They have obviously also reworked the launch control function of the M DCT and gives us a neat demonstration. The BMW engineers are optimizing the new BMW M5 even for extreme conditions. This video documents the testing of the new BMW M5 at the test-track in Miramas, France.

BMW suggests that testing on the wet handling course shows that “the BMW M5 can be perfectly balanced with the gas pedal – whether in M Dynamic Mode of with … CONTINUED
