2012 BMW M5 at the LA Auto Show

AutoSpies.com brings us pictures of this matte silver BMW M5 on the show floor of the LA Auto Show a few days early. The public days for the LA Auto Show are the 18th - 27th, but when you're an AutoSpy you manage to get pictures early.

If you're in the LA area I suggest swinging by the LA Auto show to check out all the new 2012 cars, including this M5. Post your impressions of the matte silver, we want to know what a bigger car like the M5 looks like in in a matte paint.

I like it.

However, isn't it time BMW came up with a new M wheel design?

They have been riding that pony for a long time now. there is a slight change in the wheels but nothing significant.

lol @ the wheel design comment...you are right but it still rocks though....they have to keep the spokes to a minimum as they have to keep them light......

I'm breathless just looking at the damn photo!

The new M5 looks much more "beastier" (yes I know that's not a word) than the previous version. Kind of like the difference between Sean Connery (aggressive and bold) playing James Bond and Roger Moore (refined). IMO when it comes to the M5, I'll take the Sean Connery aggressive styling.

Ok, now I just need to finish cutting some more lawns.

This same color and wheel setup is at the Philly auto show that I attended today. The frozen silver does have a matte look and the car was simply stunning in person. I was so looking forward to seeing it (and the new 911 Carrera S) and BMW really nailed it with the dimensions and muscular design. It just looks like a beast, but so refined at the same time. Far and away my favorite car at a show with everything from a yellow LFA, to a black/red SLS AMG with matte black rims (lots of matte finishes at the show), R8 V10, Aventador, creamy white Aston Rapide, Maserati coupe with a carbon rear lip, gray Panamera Turbo S, blacked out ZR1, Fisker Karma...lots of nice stuff.

The new 911 looks terrific in person and they had a few on display, but the medium blue that I sat in looks wonderful. The larger rims help it a lot. Can't wait to see the next turbo. Would look nice next to my X5 in the garage.
