BMW M5 E60 production ends, 2011 BMW M5 F10 arriving soon

As soon as BMW officially revealed the 2011 5 Series F10, hardcore fans eagerly awaited the announcement of the next generation M5 F10, which would replace the current M5 E60.

Now, we’re one step closer to the next generation, as BMW has announced that the current M5′s production has come to an end.

The M5 E60, presented in 2005, has achieved impressive sales, moving 20,548 units in the five years it’s been with us. It was powered by a massive 5.0-liter V10 engine, capable of 507 HP, and although it suffered from the controversial Bangle design, it still impressed a lot of people.

The 2011 M5 F10 has been rumored for quite some time now. All we know is that it will use the same 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine from the X5 M and X6 M, but will be upgraded to develop somewhere around 560 HP and 530 lb-ft of torque.

Controversial styling and all, we’ll still miss the BMW M5 E60. Hopefully the M5 F10 will more than make up for the departure of its predecessor.
