    • F10 BMW M5 concept photos leaked by a Russian site

      We were not expecting photos the M5 concept for at least a little while longer. Seems a Russian site jumped the gun slightly and was able to post the photos for the M5 concept before anyone else. As usual, BMW reveals their production aspirations for the M car in concept form and we like what we see. No real surprises, the car is actually fairly mild and restrained.

        ^ Very nice, that looks much better! Amazing what a color change can do.

        No, it is a little underwhelming.

        Being RWD it should have more than the X5 M and X6 M but whatever, those are big numbers and likely underrated.

        it's disappointing cuz in Chris Harris review M engineers said they will give the car higher HP which it doesn't seem it's higher.
        the car uses Getrag DCT , how much can it handle ?

        I would need details on the model of Getrag DCT they are using. I'm guessing it is a unit similar to the Ferrari California.

        so it's limited 750 N.m , i believe you won't be last owner with a rebuilt DCT transmission .

        I'm hoping to open up the possibility to everyone in the BMW community, so we have options. If I would have known it would have been this long of a sacrifice though... maybe not Click here to enlarge
