The next generation F10 BMW M5 is rendered once again. The 2012 M5 won’t be unveiled until next spring, at the Geneva auto show, in a concept form, but computer generated images continue to pop-up on a monthly basis.

As seen in spy photos as well, the rendered M5 sports an aggressive front-end with the M treatment which includes the usual aggressive bumper and large air intakes. The hood features the same sporty look with concave and convex shapes, the V-forming creases that enhance its sportiness.

The exterior design lines continue to flow across the sides, with a crease running from the front to the rear wheel arches. They become even more substantiated as they approach the rear-end. Wider rear fenders visually enhance the M5’s road presence.

The M gills, an M trademark, are featured on this rendering as well, along with M-style wheels.

The car’s construction will be a hybrid of an aluminum spaceframe for the front section and a traditional steel monocoque for the passenger compartment and rear.

The new M5 goes on sale at the end of 2011.
