After BMW released their initial set of images for the new M5, we were sure another set would become available with beautiful scenery and high action. Well, I woke up this morning with a pleasant surprise. BMW has really outdone itself with this set of wallpapers, if you want a beautiful desktop image, this is it!

We’ve stacked the F10 M5 up against the E63 AMG and CTS-V, but there are other cars in the segment which warrant further comparison, namely the Porsche Panamera Turbo/S and the Jaguar XF-R.

This comparison covers cars from a wide range of prices – from $80,000 to $173,000, but on paper the performance specs and owner demographics are close enough to compare. Again, the real tests will come from test drives, reviews, and direct comparos of the M5 against its rivals.

Now that the Official F10 M5 Production stats and specs have been revealed, the natural question is how it compares to its most direct competitors. We undertake this comparison below, with a photo and specs shootout against two of the M5′s biggest rivals — the 2012 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG and the 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan.

As some might not know yet, Mercedes-Benz has recently announced the use of their new 5.5L twin turbo V8 for the E63 beginning this Fall. We’ve used this new engine’s specs to provide the most up-to-date comparison possible.

On paper, the super sedans are pretty evenly matched. The differences will come in the driving experience and real world test results. As BMW traditionally underrates their power figures, we expect the F10 M5′s real … CONTINUED

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
