It seems a new trend is developing, with the sports sedan flagship boasting a similarly styled front bumper to the aforementioned BMW 1 Series M.

It is likely that this new front end design will become typical of the M range in the near future, starting with the BMW M5.

Just what lies beneath the mildly camouflaged bonnet of the M5 prototype is still anyone’s guess, although odds are it is a twin-turbocharged V8 engine similar to the powerplant found in the BMW X6 M.
