Rendered Speculation: 2012 BMW M5 Touring

Master photochopper Jon Sibal has put digital pen to virtual paper to render up the next BMW M5, but unlike his previous F11 ‘chops, he’s applying his skills to the yet-to-be-confirmed Touring version of the mid-size bahn-burner.

As Sibal points out in his post, BMW has an on-again, off-again history when it comes to five-door versions of the M5, with the E28 and E39 only available sans-hatch, while the E34 and outgoing E60 have been available in five-door form.

There’s a good chance that the F11 version will be made, nixing the current model’s V10 powerplant in favor of a 570-horsepower twin-turbocharged V8 pulled from the X6 M. However, the chances of the hi-po hatch making it to the States is virtually nill, as the 5 Series Gran Turismo is set to take the standard Touring’s place in the U.S. market. So does that mean a M5 GT could be in the works? Here’s hoping, and maybe Sibal will render one up in the meantime.
