We’ve shown you spyshots of the facelifted F10 BMW 5 Series in both standard and M-Sport forms. Even the F07 GT hatchback didn’t escape our lenses. Now comes the turn of the ultimate 5 Series, the BMW M5 facelift to be scooped by our European spyshot supplier.

A large portion of the front fascia is covered, but only the lights and grille are new. The headlamps now feature BMW’s latest flat-bottomed Corona Rings and they also appear to be full-LED units, which are expected to be an optional extra on the updated F10 range. The rear lights have updated graphics too.

The new kidney grille is interesting. It gets new M-specific ‘double-line’ vertical elements bearing the M5 badge, both of which debuted on the latest M6. The rest of the car, both front and back, look identical to the current model, which isn’t uncharacteristic of M-car facelifts.

No pictures of the interior just yet, but expect it to sport the sleeker steering wheel with thinner spokes first seen on the M6. Mechanically, well, with 560 hp from its 4.4 litre twin-turbo V8 it doesn’t need any more power now does it?
