2011 BMW M5

Although this is not the first time we’ve seen BMW’s next-generation M5 testing on public roads, our spies did manage to get particularly clean and clear shots that were right up close on the upcoming M5.

BMW’s latest M5 is due for some serious change, including a huge transformation was a massive V10 to a much smaller twin-turbocharged V8.While the outgoing M5 is powered by a 5.0-liter 500 horsepower V10, this latest M5 is confirmed to be packing the twin-turbo, direct-injected 4.4-liter V8 from the X5 and X6 M models.BMW, like all automakers, is feeling the pinch from new emissions and fuel efficiency standards and is turning to forced induction and smaller engines for improved efficiency to go along with its high-performance products.

The M5 will remain a rear-wheel drive sedan, looking to agility, power and advanced traction control to provide performance – not all-wheel drive.

We have no information on the interior of the 2011 M5 at this time.We can only speculate that the cabin may be roomier than in previous models because of the M5’s larger size.

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.

The next M5 should surface at a major auto show sometime during early to mid-2011.The 2011 M5 should start at about $87,000 – $90,000 MSRP.
