Last week, BMW has finally unveiled the highly-awaited G30 5 Series, the car on which the next BMW M5 will be based on. Instead of waiting a few more months for the official unveil, today, we might get the first look at the new F90 M5.

Scooped CAD renderings come from The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast who claim that the images show the new F90 M5 sent to them by an unnamed source. The images look like computer generated renderings which are often used in patents.

The front-end reveals the now usual M styling, with the large air intakes nicely sculpted into the front bumper. The lower part of the bumper is built with a thin, long air opening which likely helps with the engine cooling. The rear end shows the beefed up lines of the F90 M5, along with the typical rear diffuser.

Just like the G30 5 Series, the F90 M5 has received the harsh treatment of weight loss, thanks to the inclusion of exotic materials such as high strength steels or carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP). The current M5 F10 was already close to two tons weight, so the weight savings in this new generation are crucial for the driving dynamics of the new M5.

The new 2018 BMW M5 will be powered by the same 4.4 liter V8 TwinTurbo used by the current M5. However, BMW engineers have worked hard to evolve and optimize the M engine. The updated unit has been optimized to deliver maximum power at a wider rpm range, yet the power won’t exceed by much the 600 hp mark. We’re probably looking at a car that will do 0-60 in under 4 seconds.

BMW is expected to release the new M5 in mid-2017.

    Wish it was coming with more hp! This should be made to walk all over the hellcat

      It does.

      • Cory Mewton says:

        It reads it won’t bypass the 600 mark by much. I’m sure it will take the hell cat out, but they could’ve at least hit the 700-750 mark.

        • Senne says:

          Not sure because it will definitely be VERY fast, but it needs to be driveable for the everage driver and very comfortable (the M5 nowadays is an Autobahn cruiser mostly). If it would have that kind of power, it wouldn’t be comfortable anymore, it would always have xDrive and it would be hard to drive for many people (which would partly be compensated by the xDrive – but that aside)

    Hope it comes with OLED taillights and laser headlights.
