Most Advanced F10 M5 Shots Yet - Final Wheels and Mirrors, and Production Interior

As featured on HOMEPAGE.

Here are some of the most detailed F10 M5 photos yet, including clear views of the likely production interior, wheels, side mirrors, trunk spoiler, and other features. Rarely has the car been photographed parked and so up close. Only the few strips of camouflage tape remains.

The 2012 M5 is expected to premier at the 2011 Frankfurt IAA autoshow in September 2011.

Be sure to follow complete F10 M5 coverage here: http://www.bimmerpost.com/m5/

Great shots.

I also think you can extrapolate a lot of the F30 design from this M5. Specifically, the nose and rear-end.

Personally, the official wheels aren't doing it for me, they're too busy. I like the ones we saw in these shots:

I honestly like the official wheels a lot. I've always been a sucker for the split spoke wheels, on all the M cars...

I have no idea why BMW, particularly the M division are obsessed with these things.

Actually, I don't know why WE have an obsession with opposed piston callipers but surely, it won't break the bank to have a set on the M5. I know the benefits/differences are minimal specially for road use, but for the beast that the M5 is/will be, it seems a bit... weak?

The rest of the car looks awesome - save for the cut-out on the rear bumper

Oh, and on a slightly different topic; from the shot of the front wheel, looks like it'll be 19" and larger and a different offset from the current M5's. Have they had a change of heart from their high -ve offset at the rear?

Ehhh, hard to get a good read on it.

That being said I plan on selling my M3 in 3-4 years and upgraded to that beast!
