The F10 BMW M5 sales began in the U.S. in 2012 and BMW is already preparing a facelift for the popular super sporty sedan. With the imminent 5 Series Facelift, the Bavarians are aiming to keep the styling of the M5 inline with the “standard” models and a test mule was spied this week.
And as expected the changes will occur on the front fascia which gets slightly tweaked headlights, along with a new front bumper. In the back, the updates are even harder to notice, but they mostly occur around the taillights and rear bumper.
Under the hood, the F10 M5 LCI will retain its high-revving 4.4-liter turbocharged unit that uses the BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology. The engine outputs 560 horsepower from 5,750-7,000 rpm and 680Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque from only 1500rpm. BMW will continue to offer a DCT transmission as well as a manual gearbox for U.S. customers only.
The current U.S. price for the The 2013 BMW M5 is $90,695 and it remains unknown if BMW will include more standard features at a slightly higher price for the facelifted version.
Production of the M5 facelift will begin later this year.[Source: Autoevolution]
