Yesterday, we brought you some spy photos of the next-generation BMW M5 caught driving in California. Now, we have some spy video of the new F90-gen M5 caught driving around in Oslo, Norway.

Instead of just seeing one M5 in a few pictures, we now get to see a bit of a motorcade of F90 M5s, as this video catches three of them driving in a row. The creator of this video was able to get really close to them, showing off quite a few details. The lower front fascia features a lot of aggressive intakes and the front lip is very low. This new M5’s mug looks pretty mean and we’re only looking at it through camouflage.

The wheels and brakes on this car are the same as the ones on the spy car we saw yesterday. It’s a bit odd, as they’re quite small for an M5 and seem to be pulled off of an F80 M3. But, again, this could just be for testing and the final production wheels and brakes will likely be much larger. Hell, the BMW 530i M Sport’s wheels make these look small.

If you look really closely, as one of our eagle-eyes readers pointed out, you can see the interior of the these M5s a bit. You can just catch a glimpse of the passenger seat, which seems to have a completely new design, unlike any other M car currently on the road. It looks cool and different.

This next-gen F90 M5 will pack around 600 hp from a variant of BMW’s 4.4 liter V8. All of that power will be sent through an eight-speed ZF-sourced automatic gearbox and will power all four wheels, via a new M-tuned version of BMW’s xDrive system. It’s claimed that the new F90 M5 will be able to get from 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds but expect it to be a bit quicker than that, as BMW always underrated its performance figures.
