Recent spy videos of the new 2011 M5 sedan, the 6-Series Convertible, and the M6 Coupe are increasing the likelihood that these new BMWs are drawing closer and closer to a dealership date in the not-so distant future.
We’ve known for quite some time now that the new M5 and the M6 Coupe are being given an engine overhaul by doing away with the current model’s 10-cylinder engine in favor for a modded version of the twin-turbocharged V8 engine that’s currently sitting under the hood of the X5 M and X6 M. It’s also worth noting - awkward as it is - that in one of the videos, a Mercedes Benz SLS AMG is peeking just behind the 6-Series Convertible and nobody seems to be taking any notice to the camouflaged BMW. The boys from Merc ought to be having a good laugh from this.
Nevertheless, these camouflaged BMWs are still what caught our attention - no offense to the SLS - and seeing them get that kind of shakedown leads us to believe that seeing them launched will happen sooner rather than later.
