BMW has just released the latest teaser video for its upcoming 2012 M5 and this time the super sedan is at Italy’s famous high speed Nardo Ring.

There’s not a lot too this video, but it’s still pretty cool and we do get a glimpse at the M5 in a new shade of blue. There’s also a short sound clip of the engine, which you can call your Wednesday a wasted 24 hours of life if you don’t hear it.

BMW even infuses some dry German humor into the piece with a shot showing the car driving 308 km/h (191 mph), followed by another shot of an engineer sipping coffee behind the wheel.

Previous to this, BMW released a video showing the new M5 undergoing handling testing in Mirimas France (see that here) and you ca get a good idea of what the car will look like from the concept here.

As for the powertrain, look for a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 making well over 555-hp with the 2012 BMW M5 set to debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show this Fall.
