2012 BMW M5

Debuting at the Shanghai Auto Show this week, the newest 2012 M5 is as close to a production car as any “concept” vehicle can be. This includes the now-mandatory giant intakes up front backed by a black mesh grille, flared wheel arches, and those double-spoke 20-inch forged M light alloy rims in a dark black. The absence of those wheels would probably make this M5 a real sleeper. BMW says this M5 will have V8 with M TwinPower Turbo [same as in X5 M] and that means around 578 HP. The E60 M5 will also feature a seven-speed M double-clutch transmission and an Active M Differential.
