BMW has released a new video of the 2012 M5 undergoing high speed testing at the Nardò Ring in Italy.

Essentially a production version of the M5 concept, the car will feature an aggressive body kit, a sport-tuned suspension and a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 with approximately 575 PS (423 kW / 567 bhp) and 720 Nm (531 lb-ft) of torque. Additional information is limited, but the M5 will be equipped with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive could eventually be offered.

The car is expected to be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show, but the video hints that it could debut at M Festival in June.
