I believe you are thinking of the new 6er--much more of a 5-series coupe than the more halo-y e63.

If it's Estoril blue, it must be a new mixture as the original was canned for being a rather eco-unfriendly paint to produce.

I read a story that said it's only gonna be available in automatic. Not sure how true that is, but I'll be sorely disappointed if that's the case. It'll still be amazing regardless though.

Should go for Laguna Seca Blue! (just kidding, that would look horrible on an M5) It might suit the character of the upcoming 1 Series M Coupe, what do you think?

I love the Laguna Seca Blue, but I think it looks better on 3Series.

Not using that hopelessly flawed M-DCT joke of a gearbox is a step in the right direction.This car is going to be a bullet.

Looks like Monte Carlo Blue to me, from the X5 M.

ZHPRegistryNet...the E60 M5 already weighed in at 4035-4135lbs depending on which car magazine you read. this one should be well over 4000lbs. according to car and driver, the automatic 550i already weighed in over 4400lbs, so there is no way the M5 will weigh less than that. i'm guessing this new M5 will be at least 4500lbs. too heavy but i guarantee you it'll still be faster than the E60 M5, at the very least with its straight line performance cos BMW's probably has the 2nd strongest turbos in the industry behind porsche's. The nissan GT-R's turbo dont count cos nissan only has that awesome turbo for that car, the rest of their turbo's are pretty average.

That makes sense. Plus they ditched the aluminum front half in the F10, which is responsible for the weight spike from the E60. Assuming the same delta with this car it's just way too heavy. "Fast" is a relative term. Take it through a series of very quick left and right S turns and that power will do nothing for you.

Anybody want to take a stab at guessing this bad boy's curb weight? I am going with over 4000lbs
