Here’s the very first look at a production Imperial Blue Metallic F10 M5 (although it could also possibly be Azurite Black Individual which is also a dark blue/black color). Imperial Blue Metallic has a beautiful metallic blue hue to it when illuminated and is the darker of the F10 M5 colors. This particular 2012 M5 joined ///M Flight, an M owner’s club in Germany, this past weekend. Club members were given rides in the new monster 560hp M5 and got up to 187mph … CONTINUED

M-Power.com visited him in Singapore and chronicled the event, which leaves no doubt he’s a car fanatic.

Just to name a few cars Benjamin owns, the following report … CONTINUED

This is perhaps the best sounding clip we’ve heard yet of the 2012 F10 M5. Many people have lamented the loss of the iconic naturally aspirated V10 of the previous generation M5 and one of the reasons is the expectation that the bi-turbo V8 won’t sound nearly as good. This exhaust clip may go far in convincing some people otherwise however. F10 M5 exhaust video clip inside.

The 2012 M5 (F10) will come in a fairly extensive choice of colors, including some beautiful individual exterior color options. One of the individual exterior color options is Brilliant White Metallic, which we’ve spotted hanging out at BMW M HQ in Garching, Germany.

Besides the individual brilliant white metallic exterior paint, the this M5 also has other individual options, such as the black painted mirrors and wheels. The red leather interior looks great set off against the white and black exterior color scheme.

As for not having blue … CONTINUED

What most folks have not realized so far are the extensive modifications BMW has made to the F10 M5 engine. We point those out for you below, referencing BMW’s released info. Compared to the S85 engine of the E60 M5, BMW claims that “VALVETRONIC has also sharpened the responsiveness of this engine [S63Tü].

Here are the highlights of the new M5′s S63Tu engine and how it’s different from the S63 engine used for the X5 M and X6 M.

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.

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 … 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 … CONTINUED

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).
