The Nurburgring has hosted more than its fair share of testing runs from car brands looking to break in their new models so it really wasn’t the least bit surprising to us that BMW ’s test track session of the new 2011 M5 happened at the - you guessed it - Green Hell.
While testing sessions are mostly done to gauge how far the car’s performance has come since it was first penned, we couldn’t help, but feel a little optimistic at how the new M5 looks. Sure, there’s still a bit of camouflage on the car but with less and less of it appearing by the day, we’re finally getting a good look at the new M5, which, if you’re curious to know, has our approval.
As far as the car’s performance numbers are concerned, everything is as what we’ve mentioned before, including the 4.4 liter-twin-turbo V8 from the X5 M and the X6 M with an outut of 570 horsepower and a 0-60 mph time of just 4.2 seconds.
The car is expected to be revealed at the Paris Motor Show later this year with sales set to begin sometime in 2011.
