Comparison: F10 M5 Production versus Concept

BIMMERPOST NEWS
Compared: F10 M5 Production versus Concept
26
COMMENTS

BMW has a good habit of keeping its production vehicles very close to their concept forms. This holds true with the just revealed production F10 M5 as well, which is extremely close to its concept form. The only visual difference we spot by sight is the sleeker/smaller mirrors which were not present on the concept M5 and the more aggressive sideskirts on the production M5. The wheels are simply a silver version of the gloss black wheels on the concept M5.

We've put together a set of comparison photos to illustrate just how close the two designs are. For full details on the production F10 M5 so far, see the official thread.

I like it better with the silver wheels. I have a feeling that black wheels may be an option though.

The concept's gas tank door keeps moving from the driver's side to the passengers side in every other picture.

I like the production model. I would prefer black painted calipers as opposed to color matched, but otherwise looking great!
