SPIED: BMW M5 2012

SPIED: BMW's new M5 is spotted undergoing testing in Germany.

Our spies braved the Bavarian wilderness for these images of BMW’s latest M5 F10 prototype undergoing testing in Germany.

Our latest spy images show the new model has lost most of its heavy plastic camouflage we can now get a better sense of the front and rear end design. Though BMW has still plastered on its psychedelic wrappings we can see the overall design of the fascia and the huge air intake vents.

In case you’re still sceptical, the M5 sports the tell tale four-tailpipe layout exclusive to all M cars plus large brakes with cross-drilled rotors.

As for the engine, rumour has it the model will sport the 413kW 4.4-litre twin turbo seen in the X6 M and X5 M.

Not as powerful as the current segment power-king, Audi’s 425kW RS 6 V10 quattro, BMW tends to make up for the power deficiency in driving dynamics.
