Just seconds ago we published the first photo of what it seemed to be a camouflage-free F10 BMW M5. While this prototype was spotted in Munich, other test mule goes back to Nordschleife. The super sporty sedan has been spied during some test trials at the famous Nurburgring.

In Spring 2011, BMW will unveil a concept of the new M5 and the venue to host the world premiere is the Geneva Motor Show. A production variant will make its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2011.

Judging by the sound of the engine and the smooth, perfect shifting, we continue to believe that the F10 M5 is powered by a modified twin-turboDCT gearbox. Back in June, BMW’s M boss, Dr. Kay Segler confirmed that the next generation 2012 BMW M5 will be powered by a V8 turbocharged engine. The powerplant in the F10 M5 is based on the same unit found in the BMW X5 M and X6M, the twin scroll twin turbo version of the N63, known as the S63, with Cylinder-bank Comprehensive Manifold (CCM).
