Lo and behold, the next-generation BMW M5 F10 prototype spied testing in Scandinavia has finally lost all of its heavy plastic cladding on the front and rear ends. In its place BMW has plastered their famous psychedelic wrappings.
Now we can see the overall design of the bumper fascia, more specifically, the magnitude of the air intake pockets for the first time. Just in case you were sceptical of its M5 intentions, giveaway signs include the four round tailpipes BMW exclusively assigns to all current and recent M cars plus the large brakes with cross-drilled rotors all around. Also, is that a power bulge on the hood?
As for the engine, speculation has it that the new 4.4-litre twin turbo seen in the X6 M and X5 M with 555 bhp will be used. Not as powerful as the current segment power-king the Audi RS 6 V10 quattro with 571 bhp, however, BMW tends to make up for the power deficiency in driving dynamics. We hope our spies will sooner or later be able to gather more accurate information about the powerplant.
