More information revealed about the new 2012 BMW M5. According to Autocar, the new BMW M5 will be available with a four-wheel drive system. The system could be similar to the XDrive 4WD found on the X6M SUV, but combined with the new 7-speed dual-clutch transmission instead of the automatic converter found on the SUV.

We already knew some technical specs of 2012 BMW M5 when first presented at the Shanghai Auto Show. It will be powered by a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 producing 560 horsepower and 511 pound-feet of torque.  But the BMW M5 XDrive version could offer even more power with the KERS system, which was previously recorded up to 600 horsepower.

The 2012 BMW M5 F10 will make its final debut at Frankfurt Motor Show in September, and by then, we will definitely know for  sure what the 2012 BMW M5 is made of.
