The facelifted M5 features a revised front end, similar to that planned for the rest of the 5-series range
Camouflage on the lower rear bumper suggests minor tweaks have been made
The facelift is likely to bring a number of minor mechanical tweaks, but BMW has not confirmed what they could be
Subtly revised headlights are among the changes
The M5 will use the latest iDrive system, as fitted to the 7-series
The 2014 facelifted BMW M5 has been spotted testing for the first time, showing the cosmetic changes which will bring the supersaloon in-line with the rest of the forthcoming, revised 5-series range.
Our spy shots show the revised M5 will feature resculpted headlights and a slightly slimmer interpretation of the iconic kidney grille. The 2014 model year revisions also include new rear lights and a lightly modified rear bumper.
The external changes are far less extensive than those applied to the Mercedes E63 AMG recently.
The new M5 will borrow the latest iteration of BMW’s iDrive multimedia system from the 7-series.
BMW has not revealed any changes to the specification of the F10 M5’s engine. However the 550i, which shares its basic engine with the M5, is in line for a power boost, taking total output to around 450bhp.
