Coverage of the 2012 BMW M5 F10 on WCF first began back in 2007. It started with test mule spy photos and then after the launch of the F10 5-Series, full body spy photos along with small bits of information on the new super sedan surfaced from "inside sources" as well as from BMW bosses themselves.

Moving into the final stretch, BMW started releasing winter testing teaser videos a couple of months ago with the first reveal happening just a few days ago in Munich at a closed event for select journalist. Unfortunately, those journalist who attended had to trade their ability to report these leaked images for the privilege to be one of the first to witness the M5 in the metal.

At this Munich event, BMW also revealed several stillborn M projects as well as other unique one-offs such as the M3 pickup.

No confirmed details have surfaced yet with these images, but the media release is expected on April 7th followed by the public debut at Auto Shanghai on April 19.  Stay tuned.
