2014 BMW M5 facelift leaked – by BMW’s own websiteTue, 14 May 2013 00:00:00 -0700
Fortunately, the BMW news specialists at BimmerPost were on the ball and managed to get some screen-grab photos of the new M5 before BMW realised their mistake, so we get to see what BMW has planned for the M5, and probably a guide to what the facelift for the rest of the 5-Series range will offer.
The changes aren’t huge, and as far as we can see all that’s going on is a bit of influence from the M6 and 6-Series in general, with a new kidney grill that looks like the 6 Series, and a steering wheel looks like that on the new M6 too, together with the latest iDrive controller.
The leaked images don’t tell us what BMW are planning under the bonnet of the facelifted M5, but it’s not too much of a stretch to expect a Competition Package for the M5 to give it similar clout to the new Mercedes E63 AMG S.
We’re expecting the facelift for the M5 – and the rest of the 5-Series range – to go on sale in early 2014 after a debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
