Video shows the next-generation F10 M5 doing its final testing at BMW's test-track facility in Miramas in the south of France.

Well, now that BMW's secret test facility in the south of France is no longer such a secret, by BMW's own doing, the automaker has seen fit to produce this video showing the upcoming 2012 F10 M5 doing its final testing on the track in Miramas.

The F10 M5 is pushed to it limits and its suspension components and the M DCT 7-speed gearbox are also put to the challenge as BMW aims to make the next M5 a more exciting and precise instrument to drive while still maintaining more-than-adequate levels of comfort.

With a top speed of more than 300 km/h (190 mph), the next M5 won't be holding anything back. In the video we also get to see the F10 do its straight-line sprint using its Launch Control function in a runway rush that mimics a jumbo jet take-off.
