2012 BMW M5 F10 rendered

Ready for action

After completing renderings of the 1-Series M Coupe, Gerald Alvarez decided to focus his talents on the 2012 BMW M5 (F10).

Seen here, in stunning detail, the rendered M5 doesn't look all that different from lesser models. There's the usual M styling tweaks (revised bumpers, new side vents, aggressive side sills and lightweight wheels) but that's about it.

As we have previously reported, the M5 will be powered by a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 from the X5 M / X6 M.  It produces 547 hp (408 kW / 555 PS) in the crossovers, but the sedan will likely get a modified version with 592 hp (441 kW / 600 PS).

Expected to debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, the redesigned M5 will go on sale late next year.

too subtle for me. Also , needs rims with a lip, not just concave.

i can tell you guys from actually owning an m5 that the newer one will probably not be as good in the most important ways, with feel and soul. There is really nothing like the v10 in the car coupled with the retarded smg transmission. Although it may have not been the most effective way of shifting gears, it had a certain feel that i love. You go like hell, shift up, and literally lose all forward momentum for about 1/10 of a second, and then it feels like you got rear ended until you run out of revs and have to shift up again. The only problem was that the car has no torque. With the newer double clutch gear box in the M3 and the X5M there will be no sensation of shifting gears. But will all the new horsepower and torque available so low in the rev range it will still be a beast. In summary, i think the new M5 will be an awesome car, but they should have kept the V10 and bored it out like the dinan stroker or something. I will miss the old M5, but I will definitely buy the new one.

Renders looks like a 5 with sports pack.By the way fanboys M 1 is going to be limited to 2800 units worldwide and therfore BMW stealers will rape every idiot who is stupid enough to pay $10,000 plus MRSP for an ugly pug.Screw the stealers and BMW for turning into Toyota and only looking at the bottom dollar.

Did this start out as a picture of a Hamann 5-Series? It just looks like a photograph taken by Hamann... The fact that all these F10 M5 renders look pretty much the same proves that M-Power aren't very imaginative I'm the styling department. Just the same design on different bumpers. Sure, that gives them a familiar look, which makes them easy to spot, but it makes all this visual speculation a tad pointless. The same is true of the 1 M Coupé (which apparently will be manual-only :D). It's not important (nor will it be surprising) what it looks like, it's about the performance!

Very true. It doesn't really matter what it will look like as long as it looks like an M. I think even BMW would agree. That's good news about the 1M though, I didn't know that.

All I'm saying is that it better be available with a stick.

Previous renders definitely looked better than this... and how many versions of the M5 has to be rendered... Come on BMW, unveil the damn car now!
