2017 BMW M5 Spied With Slightly Less Camouflage

|

While still well hidden under a dizzying array of vinyl stickers, BMW's next-generation M5 flagship seems slightly more eager to reveal itself to us.

We're clearly able to see more of the front end where the spoiler is less covered up than in previous spy images, and though we can't be sure, it does seem like the black vinyl patches at the front sort of revealing an extra shape or two.

Overall, the air intakes are bigger and so is the front grille, though we already knew that from previous images of the all-new and well-hidden M5.

Once BMW decides to unveil the car, it will likely feature an upgraded version of its existing 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8, with possibly over 600 horses on tap. Acceleration time should be much improved, especially in the xDrive versions, which will be available for the first time in the M5's long history.

The new M5 should get advanced semi-autonomous tech, sophisticated anti-collision systems and fully autonomous braking. As for entertainment, the new generation iDrive system (currently used in the new 7-Series) will allow passengers to navigate the car's functions as they would their personal mobile device.

Another upside to knowing what to expect from the all-new M5 is the fact that we can correlate it directly to the next M6 - so in a way, we'll be hitting two birds with one stone the moment the M5 breaks cover.
