Earlier this year, BMW confirmed that the M5 will take a break for the 2011 model year and that a new M5 based on the sixth-generation 5-Series is in the works – ready to make its debut sometime next year. Since than, automotive designer Job Sibal has given us a little hint as to what the next-generation M5 could look like.
Sibal has now rendered a next-generation M5 Touring.
So far we’ve heard that the current V10 in the M5 will be dropped in favor of a direct-injected twin-turbo 4.4L V8 making 570-hp. Mated to a dual-clutch 7-speed transmission, the sixth-generation M5 should go from 0-60 mph in less than 4.5 seconds.
Check out a video of the 2011 BMW 5-Series in action.
