The 25th Auto Shanghai kicks off a fortnight from now, and in its capacity as one of the world's most important automotive showcases in the world's largest auto market, we'll be seeing quite a few important model introductions. Near the top of that list is a new BMW Concept M5.

As with all previous M5s, it's a high-performance sports car that masquerades as a premium class business sedan. Not many details as yet, apart from that it will be powered by a twin turbo V8, but lots of detail images.

BMW's M5 has been one of the most popular wolves in sheep's clothing for three decades, with the first of the souped-up 5-series being the M535i introduced in 1980. The M5 badge first saw the light of day in 1984, becoming the world's fastest production sedan when it hit showrooms and since then, each new 5-series generation has formed the basis of the M5.The Concept M5 is based on the new F10 5-series and will almost certainly be the next production M5.

Auto Shanghai will also see the world premiere of the new BMW 6 Series Coupe with Adaptive LED headlights, a new BMW Heads-Up Display and a new Bang & Olufsen Surround Sound System.

Wow a new exciting M5 (not just a motor sport) all the way from BMWs top secret M division presented here in dull dreary boring middle-of-the-road grey. if you are going to make a statement dont say it with a wimper; make mine burnt orange.
