VIDEO: Pre-production 2011 M5 playing on a Frozen Lake

This pre-production BMW M5 - internal code F10M - was being tested up on a frozen lake in Sweden. Chris Harris caught up with the twin-turbo V8 and held some big drifts

"This car feels to me like a successor to the E39 M5 and not a successor to the E60 M5. And that is a crucial distinction"

By all accounts, it seems like the M5 is going to redeem itself despite the recent and somewhat Lexusifying effort on the non-M F10's.

Can't wait to test drive this one when it comes to the US.

I hope he's right about it being more like the E39. My E39 wasn't an "M" car, but it was the best car I've ever owned.
