BMW has released a new video which shows the 2012 M5 at the Laguna Seca racetrack.

While the driver is taking it easy, the clip provides the usual glamour shots as well as the sound of a roaring engine.

As we have previously reported, the M5 is powered by a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine with 560 PS (412 kW / 552 hp) and 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission which enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.4 seconds and hit a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph) - or 305 km/h (190 mph) with M Driver's Package.
