Cool Laguna Seca: 2013 M5 Track Press Launch (Photos)

BIMMERPOST NEWS
Laguna Seca: 2013 M5 Track Press Launch Photos
36
COMMENTS

We have been attending BMW's track press launch of the 2013 M5 sedan, 2013 M6 coupe, 2013 7 Series LCI (facelift), and Alpina B7 being held at the Laguna Seca raceway in Monterey, CA.

We'll be sharing our thoughts soon on some of these cars, but in the meantime, enjoy some photos of the F10 M5 from Laguna Seca. We focused on the Sakhir Orange M5 as it's a new color as of the 2013 model year.

For real life looks at the other M5 production colors, see our OFFICIAL F10 M5 Color Photo Threads Master List

Be sure to catch our recent short-term tester review of the F10 M5, if you haven't already.

Just curious why do the cars have New Jersey tags? Is that where they were registered temporarily?

Great post, just a heads up that "2013 M5" was mentioned twice in the first sentence. Thanks for posting, great pics!

Yeah, looking at the M5 and M6 side by side in the same color, I've got to say the M6 front really looks stunning.

Sakhir Orange is such a stunning color especially if you get it on a family saloon.

Beautiful pictures! Makes me reconsider my decision to get Sapphire Black instead of Sakhir Orange or Monte Carlo Blue!

I think its the headlights guys, the M6 is sporting those awesome LED headlamps whereas the M5 has the regular (dated) HID's. Do 5er customers have to wait for LCI to get LED headlights? Ridiculous if they do...
