The 2018 BMW M5 has finally been spied with its new headlights and tail lights.
The next-generation BMW M5 has been spied testing several times in recent months, but the latest set of photos show its real lights up front and in the rear. It has shed a little bit of camouflage since the last time spy photographers caught it in action, but the vast majority of the car is still concealed. We can, however, see the slightly more aggressive front bumper with larger air intakes as well as the signature M brake calipers, while the rear has a quad exhaust setup and the subtle lip spoiler that has been made famous thanks to BMW M models.
The 2018 BMW M5 is expected to have an updated version of the German automaker’s 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine providing around 620 horsepower. It will likely have an xDrive all-wheel-drive option that will have a rear-wheel bias, while the standard transmission will be a seven-speed, dual-clutch unit. Considering BMW is ditching the manual transmission on the current M5 and M6 models later this year, don’t expect to see a manual option for the next-generation M5.
