M5board got their hands on the first photos of the BMW M5 F10 engine. Full details around the powerplant remain unknown, but we learned in the past that the 2012 BMW M5 is powered by an updated version of the S63 engine found in the BMW X5 M and X6 M. The 4.4-liter V8 twin-scroll powerplant will peak at somewhere in the 570-horsepower range and 530 lb-ft of torque. The 0-62 mph dash should take about 4.4 seconds,

The updated unit delivers both performance and efficiency significantly increased in comparison to the previous engine. Numerous drivetrain innovations and other enhancements have lead to a reduction in fuel consumption and emission levels by more than 25 percent.

The new engine is matted to a 7-speed M double-clutch transmission with Drivelogic. The combination of the new engine with M Drivelogic is supplemented by an Auto Start Stop function. A manual option will be offered for US customers.

    4.4 Seconds. Seems Very Conservative. BMW claimed E60 made 4.7 seconds yet it made 4.1-4.5 seconds from reviewers. This car, especially with the Launch control and a huge torque increase, will make under 4 seconds when Motor Trend or Car and Driver test it.

     HOLY SHIT. I can actually see the engine.. too bad this car will cost 100,000+

       What did you expect when the last M5 was over $100,000 to begin?

      On the bright side, you can still dwindle the payments down to less than $1,000/mo with a lease. Financing would require a huge down payment.

    this car will do around 4.4secs. at best to 100kmh.
    looks good but not wow

      these figures are wrong. Look at e39 M5 – 400 BHP. E60 M5 – 507 BHP. So… F10 M5 600 BHP+ all day long. With the turbos i expect 0-60 MPH 3.7-3.9 Sec. Considering X5/X6M do 0-60 in 4.5 (with x-drive!!!)

    Are we looking at a water-air intercooler at the front of the engine?   I can’t figure out how the ducting is working because it looks like the uncompressed portion of the intake joins with the compressed portion.    Presumably the hot compressed air flows down the middle ducts to the intercoolers, then under them to the reversed intakes.
