BMW rumormill continues to churn and the latest rumor is that an M5 model based on the touring bodystyle is in works at the BMW M division. The same as always source, Scott27 returns with these breaking news that could excited the Touring fans all over the world.
Unfortunately, no other details are being released at the moment, but we can expect the M5 Touring to feature similar aggressive design elements as seen in the M5 sedan. The powerplant offering should be identical to the one offered in the sedan model, most likely an updated version of the 4.4-liter V8 twin-scroll engine found in the BMW X5 M and X6 M which will peak at 578-horsepower and 530 lb-ft of torque.
The big question remains whether the North American market will be the target for the new M5 Touring since regular 5 Series Touring sales have been disappointing last year.
