2012 BMW M5 carries out its last testing before production in fall


The new 2012 BMW M5 F10 carriesĀ out its last testing at the proving groundĀ at the Circuit de Miramas in France before production this fall. The new four-door sedan is powered by a V8 twin turbocharged engine producing 560 horsepower.

This probably the last changes to the 2012 BMW M5 since its debut as a concept at the show in Shanghai. There are a few tuning details before it is headed to production, and these including the tuning of the steering, transmission and all the electronic controls to balance out performance and comfort.

There have been rumors of an M5 Xdrive (four-wheel drive), but from the video of the 2012 BMW M5 at the track, it seems more likely a rear-wheel drive will only be available. Fortunately, the production model will stay true to its concept design. Check out the video below.
