BMW will unveil new M5 concept at the 2011 Shanghai Auto Show

Sources say that BMW will unveil the concept version of the new M5 at the Shanghai Auto Show this April. Visitors will get more than a treat as the 6 Series Coupe will also be displayed at the show. Because of BMW’s skill in combining zest with an executive aura, the M5 doesn’t just excel in its niche segment.

In fact, a greater part of the public has shown their interest in this model. But unfortunately, this appreciation has yet to translate into sales.

Fans of the M5 have become even more excited as the current F10 generation of the car will soon be getting its M version. The fact that BMW has chosen to reveal the M5 at Shanghai instead of the Geneva show further proves its commitment to the Chinese market.

No surprises are expected when it comes to the exterior design. This rendering is expected to be quite accurate. But what’s new on the tech side is that the car won’t just get the X5 M/X6 M-borrowed twin-turbo V8 engine; it will also be equipped with a set of ceramic brakes, a feature that will be available for the first time on a production vehicle bearing the BMW badge.
