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.

Here’s the best live action footage of the F10 M5, from full throttle runs on the Ascar Race Resort Track, to spirited driving in the Spanish mountains, and cruising in the city streets.

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 brakes, it’s probably because it’s not a production M5, but a factory test car.

We’ve put together a color preview guide for the F10 M5, which can be seen at http://f10.5post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=546540

Attendees at the M Driving Experience at the Salzburg Ring were lucky enough to witness in person two of BMW M’s newest creations – the BMW F10 M5 and the limited edition lightweight M3 CRT. Both of these cars were revealed to the public for the first time at BMW M Night event at the M Festival during the 24 Hours Nurburgring race. Live event photos can be found here and here.

A Bimmertoday reader was able to snag these photos and some startup videos. The new M5 seen here is painted in a unique Individual Champagne Quartz Metallic color.

Sometime in the first half of August, certain selected registered users from the M-Power.com Closed Room will be chosen to be the first handful of people to drive the all new F10 M5.

No information as to the test drive locale yet, but be sure to register regardless, as you can always decline later (though you’d be crazy to )

In order to have the chance to be selected at all, you must be registered in the M-Power.com Closed Room, so be sure to sign up at http://www.m-power.com/_open/b/closedroom.jsp?lang=en

Hi All,

Here is an interesting video around the engine of the F10, describing the main differences and improvements over the X5/X6M engine.

And another one about the M5 brakes
