2020 BMW M5 facelift spied

The updated BMW M5 has been caught testing on public roads in Europe. Cosmetic changes include new headlights graphics and a tail-light design in line with those we've seen on the latest 3 Series, X5 and X7 models. The front and rear bumpers will also carry modifications. Thankfully the updates don't seem to extend to a grille design like the one we saw on the Concept 4 at the Frankfurt motor show.

The company hasn't revealed a fast version just yet but Jurgen Stackmann, Volkswagen sales boss, has told Autocar the brand is already working out where it's planning to take the 'R' badge.
