We’ve posted below the newest F10 M5 trailer and a separate extra length testing video, complete with commentary (and our English translation) from the test drivers. Enjoy the sights and sounds inside!
What makes for a great video? EVO’s Chris Harris and a pre-production F10 M5 on snow surely isn’t the worst thing to start with. Following two F10 M5 teaser videos on M-Power.com last week, this video shows Chris Harris going sideways in an F10 M5.
There’s also some more information on EVO.co.uk. BMW apparently confirmed with Chris Harris that the new M5 will have at least 555hp (that’s the output of the X5 M and X6 M) and that “there’s a seven-speed DCT dual clutch … CONTINUED

For now, here’s a first teaser video of the F10 M5.
The F10 M5 is almost upon us, with a concept version headed for a debut at the Shanghai auto show in April. Being in its FEP phase, it’s being tested in some different production colors. Before this particular model was spotted, the only other time a blue M5 has been spotted was at M’s Garching headquarters where it was spotted with its production rear exposed for the only time.
What we see here is basically the production form of the M5, albeit with front and rear bumper … CONTINUED
Motortrend provides some reasoning behind why the upcoming F10 M5 may be M-division’s first automatic-only model, featuring a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission only and no manual or dual clutch transmission option. (Thus far, the F10 M5 has only been spotted with automatic transmission)
Their reasoning for the lack of a DCT option is due to the monstrous torque that the F10 M5′s twin turbo DI 4.4L V8 motor from the X5M/X6M is expected to generate. The F10 M5 is expected to feature more power than even the … CONTINUED
Confirming the importance of the Chinese market to BMW, the F10 M5 Concept Car will debut at the Shanghai Autoshow in April, rather than at the Geneva show where it was originally intended to be debuted. Geneva will instead feature the debut of the BMW Connected Drive Roadster Concept.
The first details of the M5 production car will be launched in mid-summer and the
production F10 M5 will be shown at the IAA Frankfurt for it’s World public Premiere. US Public Premiere will be at the … CONTINUED
Not many details have been confirmed yet on the upcoming F10 M5, but in a recent interview with the head of M division, Dr. Kay Segler has confirmed that ceramic brakes for the F10 M5 is in the works! When posed with the question whether future M cars will be available with a ceramic brakes option, he responded that it’s being worked on, for the M5.
This would represent the first time that ceramic brakes are offered as an option on a production BMW. Ceramic brakes provide … CONTINUED
