    • Production BMW F10 M5 photos leaked - looks pretty much exactly like the concept M5

      Nothing shocking here folks but this is the official F10 BMW M5. It looks pretty much just like the concept. 20 inch wheels appear to be standard with Z rated tires. What we are hoping for with the photos out there now is that we can get the details on the good stuff. Such as the changes made to the motor, the new redline, the torque capacity of the new DCT transmission, etc.

        Not feeling that color on the F10. Love the path of the intake vs the N63 and those intercoolers look huge compared to mine. Gonna have to do something about that!

        The engine changes look interesting from what we can see.

        I actually like the color, but think those rims in black with a carbon E46 M3 style spoiler would be hot.

        Looks like most of the M-sport stuff will carry over with some tweaking of the designs to fit.

        Looks like 90% E90 M3 and 10% E60 M5.

        Mushed E90 M3 front bumper with a E60-like M5 rear diffuser. With a little bit of a M6 wheel look.

        Not exactly stepping out of the box.

        Not too much I would think or it would be way more than the E63, right?

        I like it. It does look a lot like a bigger e90 M3 though, not overly aggressive in any way. Maybe BMW should take note of the AMG line, those cars stand out a lot compared to their normal production cars. official specs are nice too.560 HP!!! 189 MPH top speed!!!

        Nope, 555 PS actually (547 HP) and 500 lb-ft.

        I'm wondering the F10 has 560 PS or 560 HP ?

        The 560-hp is at the rear wheels!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!! And cannot wait until it is, uhmm,tweaked. BMW just rolled another seven, everyone can go back to the drawing boards (that is from European car about the E39 M5 so I borrowed it). Monte Carlo Blue and the matched calipers, damn that is cool.

        What is the combined mpg? I know they improved mpg. Were they able to get rid of the gas guzzler tax?
