Interesting that the F10 model year 2012 M5 will have a short run of 4 months of production.

Didn't the U.S. launch of the MY 2006 E60 M5 go the same way? It started production in October 2005 (?) and ended in February 2006 (?) as the MY 2007 E60 came out in March 2006. I recall the standard E60 was on this cycle, and I think the M5 followed the same cycle - or did they produce MY 2006 E60 M5 until the fall?

Oh, and if BMW limits the allotment of 2012 M5s to the U.S. to the same numbers as for the 1M ... feeding frenzy!
