Spy photos taken under the lights of a fuel island provide a clear view of the next F10 M5.

Here are the latest spy shots of the upcoming 2012 BMW M5 (F10) caught during a fuel-up while cold-weather testing in Northern Europe.

As this set of shots were taken with the M5 sitting idly under the lights of a fuel island at night, they give us a very clear view of the car. We get close enough to make out the shape of the new fenders and skirts from underneath the camouflaging tape.

We also get a shot of one of the 19-inch wheels along with its shinning metal cross-drilled brake disk and black caliper. Camo on this M5 is almost a style of its own.

Also, our spy photographers report seeing the new speedometer which reads up to 320 km/h (199 mph).

The next M5 will be fitted with a 4.4 liter twin-turbo V8 with a reported nice and even output of 600 PS (592 bhp / 441 kW). The 0 to 100 km/h is said to take a mere 4.4 seconds, a number that neatly matches the engine's displacement. Is BMW getting a little OCD?

The 2012 M5 will likely make its debut at the Frankurt motor show in September.
