BMW has made subtle changes to the current generation M5 that is on sale since 2011. The first images of the cosmetic upgrade have surfaced on the internet courtesy BMW – the car maker accidentally uploaded on the configurator ahead of the schedule.
The changes to the exteriors of the M5 include subtle changes to headlights and redesigned grille with larger vertical stats – similar to the one seen on the M6. The updates to the interior are also derived from the M6. The steering is sleeker and it gets touch sensitive iDrive controller.
The facelifted version will be powered by the same 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 developing 560PS, but there is a possibility that BMW may offer 575PS competition package as an option. The German car maker is expected to launch the car in Europe later this year. And we can expect the new model to reach Indian shores soon after as it comes to India as a CBU on order.
