Spy Shots: New BMW M5
The king is dead, long live the King! Next generation of the BMW M5 was surprised again in tests, the latest spy photos featuring for the first time the Bavarian model interior.
After taking some hot laps of the Nurburgring — which included some tire-smoking — BMW engineers pulled the M5 into a garage bay to run some diagnostics on the car.
As you can see in these pictures, exterior design was nearly completed. Aggressive spoilers will not miss the package and will be completed ultralarge wings, wheels and huge system exhaust muffler with four pipes. Also, both a sport suspension, and a powerful braking system will appear when the new generation of the BMW M5 will appear. Front bumper has been redesigned and now comes with more sharp lines.
On the M5′s exterior, “M” badged fender vents are still present, which now sit above a new set of argent-colored high-performance wheels. Behind the wheels are the massive drilled and slotted rotors – a clear indicator that this indeed the range-topping M5 performance sedan.
Moreover, for the first time, the spy shots shows the inside of the Bavarian model. So, we see three-spoke sport steering wheel with one hand endowed buttons for commands and, more importantly than that, the automatic transmission shifter in seven steps.
With a V8 twin turbo 4.4-liter engine and 578 HP under the hood , the new BMW M5 seems ready for debut more than ever. Even so, the Bavarian model will be launched early next year!
BMW M5 most likely will start next year at the Geneva Motor Show .
