With four days left before the official unveiling of the first BMW Sport Activity models built under the M brand, BMW X5 M and X6 M, new spy photos made their way onto the web. Our friends at Autoblog received spy photos of the BMW X5 M, spotted near the BMW Plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina.
Other than sporting an Alpine White exterior color, the test car in these photos is absolutely identical to what we have seen so far. The large air-intakes up front are still covered with a light camouflage, same goes for the rear bumper.
Even though we learned in the past that the headlights on the X5 M will be imported from the X6, from the angle the photos were taken, I can’t tell 100% if that’s the case, so I’ll refrain from making any false assumptions.
What’s intriguing and interesting about the BMW X5 M is the fact that even though BMW has confirmed last week the X6 M presence at the NYC auto show, the X5 M unveiling secret is kept locked down somewhere in the New Jersey Headquarter. With both models going to be revealed by the end of this week, I see no reason why the X5 M will not be in NYC as well, but in the end, it makes for a more interesting auto show when some things are being kept secret.
We don’t expect any other test cars to be spotted this week, so stay tuned for the official photos, as usual, you will find them here.
