You are looking at the newest M model to roll out from the München factory and it's a matter of months before the word "concept" disappears from its name without causing any damage just like the previous regular M concepts.

The new M5 is powered by the same 4.4-liter twin turbo V8 that develops 555 Hp under the X5 M's bonnet. However, the BMW Motorsports division engineers could have squeezed an extra 30 Hp from the engine. People will need to get used to turbocharged M cars as the M3 E92 is will be the latest naturally aspirated M car.

From an aesthetic point of view, the new M5 is a success. The front and rear bumpers are largely inspired by the E92 M3 and the latest 1M Coupe. The car looks sportier than the standard F10 without being too much aggressive. The new M5 might have grown up in term of proportions but it's still going to be faster than the E60 and for a lot a BMW enthusiasts, it's already better looking.
