Rumors around a BMW M5 Touring based on the F11 platform first surfaced in 2010, but details have been scarce and no indication from BMW that such model is even being considered. Even the usual spy shots that appear a couple of years before the market launch have yet to be seen.

With the new M5 sedan making its way to market early next year, a Touring version of the super sporty M5 is anticipated to show up a year later. BMW has yet to officially confirm their plans for an M5 Touring, but that has not stopped rendering artists from around the world drawing up renderings of what the car would look like.

 

Renderings: New BMW M5 Touring

Talented rendering artist Theophilus Chin delivers some exciting computer generated images of the F11 M5. If indeed the M5 Touring will come to market, it will be powered by the newly developed, high-revving V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo with maximum output of 560 hp at 5,750 – 7,000 rpm and peak torque of 500 lb-ft (680 Nm) between1,500 and 5,750 rpm. With a weight similar to the M5 Sedan, the Touring should make its way to 62 mph in about 4.5 seconds.

The previous generation E61 M5 Touring was introduced in 2007, only the second M version of the 5 Series Touring after the E34. The car managed to impress not only the BMW fans, but also the somewhat brand critique Jeremy Clarkson, of Top Gear, who said the “M5 is one of the most exciting cars made today. Only now, because this is an estate, your dog can come too.”

Here is to hope…

    since bmw put m badge on x-model i don’t see why they wouldn’t make m5 touring, it won’t take much money since it’s just tuned 550i touring

      The M5 is not a tuned 550i it drives and performs much differently.
      There is two Touring M5 prototypes at Garching. The reaction depends on the M550d Touring. If reaction is good M5 Touring will come to production. Surprisingly one question asked at Frankfurt was “When is the Touring coming? “  There is interest in Europe , myself included especially for my Alaskan Malamutes.

      Because BMW are not refederalizing the F10 the US will have to do with the F31 3er Touring in 328i/328ixDrive.

        i know, i just meant tuned because old R61 M5 Touring had nothing to do with 550i touring, V10 was unique and so was the gearbog SMGIII this F11 has same engine sa 550i only tuned and gearbox from M3

    I’d love to have a 6-7 passenger BMW Touring vehicle… Give the ’13 X5 a little more room in back or do a proper 5-Series Touring model with some sort of third row, just enough to get the kids and their friends to the lake and back…
