New model mistakenly appears on BMW's configurator just long enough for the images to be downloaded.
Having recently spied the upcoming refreshed 2014 BMW M5 wearing minimal camo and displaying minor tweaks, it appears the Bavarian carmaker is close to revealing the facelifted model in full. These shots come from German forum Bimmer Today which was quick to download them after they were mistakenly uploaded to the bmw.de online configurator. Standout updates on the 2014 M5 include minor headlight and taillight redesigns, and a new grille with twin vertical slats and the M badge that feature on the M6.
Minor interior upgrades include a new, slimmer M Sport steering wheel and the new touch-sensitive iDrive Touch multimedia system. Under the hood, the M5's 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 will likely continue to offer 560 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. An optional Competition Package will boost that to 575 hp as well as adding 20-inch alloys, a sportier suspension and uprated M Dynamic Mode. Set to go on sale later this year, the 2014 BMW M5 will hit German showrooms priced at 103,300 Euros with optional extras including a 8,800-Euro set of M carbon-ceramic brakes.
