Designer Imagines a 2014 BMW M5 Touring

Touring variants (BMW talk for station wagons) of the M5 have been an on-off affair for the Bavarian carmaker, which to date, has only presented two such models in the vehicle’s 28 year-long history.

The first M5 Touring came with the second-generation model (E34) in 1992 and the last, with the fourth generation E60 in 2007. BMW had also created a prototype for the third gen M5 (E39), which it kept a well-guarded secret until it finally showed the car to the public in 2009.

To our knowledge, BMW doesn’t have any plans to develop a Touring variant of its latest F10 M5, but if it did, we’re willing to bet that the car would look a lot like this rendering made by the Brazilian artists at Auto Projeções.

Under the hood, you’d find the same 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine as with the M5 sedan and M6 models, with a maximum output of 560-horses directed to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual clutch transmission.

While there’s little chance BMW will build an M5 Touring, fans of super-fast estates have other options in this segment, including Audi’s RS6 Avant and Mercedes-Benz‘s recently updated E63 AMG Wagon and the CLS 63 Shooting Brake.
