These latest pictures of the X5 M reveal all the distinctive M trademarks now on the X series cars. These include big wheels, brakes, quad exhausts, fender grills and large mouthd front bumper.
Most distinctive is that fact that the X6 front end will be grafted onto the X5 so that the M-X5 and M- X6 will share an identical front end similar to the way the E90 and E92 M3 share an identical front end even though the body and rear are markedly different.

Someone must have gotten lazy at the Nordschleife and didn’t remember to cover up the new nose on the twin-turbocharged V8-powered 2010 BMW X5. In this latest round of spy shots from the folks at KGP, we can clearly see the dramatic, M3-inspired front air dam and big new wheels to match the upgraded styling.

These are the first engine shots of that mysterious BMW X5
prototype which started all those X5M rumors. Although the rather
roughly finished engine bay doesnt give away the cylinder count and
the displacement, it looks to us that this prototype is twin-
turbocharged. The dual air-intake treatment looks similar to the
ducting on BMWs 3.0-liter twin-turbo engine. Given all of this X5
prototypes high-octane modifications, were assuming this is a larger
displacement engine, perhaps even a twin-turbo V8. Regardless of the
specifics, were just glad to finally see a little deeper inside this
beefy X5 prototype to get a glimpse at the heart of the beast. It
still doesnt fully confirm whether or not this X5 will be M-badged,
but our gut tells us that it wont. Were leaning toward other
reports that say this version will slot in where the … CONTINUED
