2011 BMW M5 Spied Out Testing


The folks over at Carscoop have just snagged these photos of what appears to be the 2011 BMW M5 out testing. Code-named the F10, there are a few hints that lead to the speculation that this is in fact the M5 and not a standard 5 series. The real give-away, however, are the four exhaust pipes.

Other M-features include the massive wheels, brakes and low stance.

Unfortunately even spy photographers can't see through sheet metal and so we're left guessing what sort of powerplant the next M5 will have. The current M5 boasts a 507hp 5.0-liter V10 and while there is some speculation that the next generation of the iconic car will use a twin-turbocharged V10, it's more likely that we'll see the twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 that produces as much as 555hp and 500 ft-lbs of torque in the X5 M and X6 M.

Power will no-doubt be slightly more than in either of the M-powered SUVs and possibly even reach the 600 mark.

Other highlights to look for include a version of BMW's double-clutch gearbox which first appeared on the latest M3. And in keeping with the automakers Efficient Dynamics approach, look for innovative new ways to save weight.

The F10 M5 is slated to be a 2011 model, so look for it sometime in 2010.
