BMW M5 Concept Revealed Ahead Of Shanghai Debut

BMW has released first images and details of the new M5 Concept, that will have its public debut at Auto Shanghai on April 19.

Based on the new F10 5 Series, the M5 features typical M styling like a revised front fascia with bigger air intakes, lip spoiler on the trunk, rear apron with an integrated diffuser, quad exhausts and 20-inch forged rims fitted with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres.

BMW did not reveal what’s really under the bonnet. All they mentioned is that there is a high-revving V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo Technology that generates the power output required for outstanding performance.

If you have been following us for a while you know it is a twin-turbocharged 4.4 litre V8 that produces 580-600bhp.

Even though BMW calls it a concept, it is very close to the production model that will go on sale this autumn.
