Thumbs up F10 M5 Spotted In Monte Carlo Blue, Showing DCT Transmission

F10 M5 Spotted Again Stunning Monte Carlo Blue Again

We bring you more photos of the F10 M5 in beautiful Monte Carlo Blue! Seen here is the expected production form of the F10 M5, with only front and rear details under any major camouflage. It is easy however to piece together what they look like from previous spy photos (posted below). The new M5 will be powered by a tweaked version of the S63 V8 twin turbo motor from the X5M/X6M, good for what we believe will be 585-600hp.

Also pictured are the best interior spy photos yet, showing the DCT transmission and full black panel dashboard.

The F10 M5 concept will bow at the 2011 Shanghai show next month (with an internet reveal sometime prior) and the production M5 is expected to premier at the 2011 Frankfurt IAA autoshow in September. Euro deliveries will begin in November 2011 and US deliveries begin in Spring 2012.

Wonder if it is the stock DCT or a beefed up DCT.

If its stock and the car puts out 600HP, that really lets you know how much the M3 DCT can safely take.

Are those the production wheels? I am not crazy about them.

Having driven an X5M recently and getting up well into triple digit speeds with an auto transmission ( one of the best and fast shifting autos out there), I can only imagine how good this M5 is going to be with even more horsepower/torque, a lot less weight and 7-speed DCT transmission. Looking forward to it.

That's perforated leather for the seat ventilation.

Apparently this is the north american model:

1) MPH Speedo
2) No rear foglight switch
3) Red turnsignals instead of amber

I agree -- not a fan of the LMB on this car.

Design is pretty tame which surprises me. A Z4 looks swoopier/sportier

The rims suck too. Brake dust nightmare cleaning

They have two blacked out buttons on the left side of the steering wheel. Presumably one is the M button. Wonder what the other is ?

They're likely both M buttons as earlier prototypes had these labeled as M1 and M2.
