2012 BMW M5 Frozen Silver seen at LA Motor Show

Though apparently focused on their return to the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show and their two main presences there, the hybrid 5 Series and the i Range, BMW knows the importance of the LA Motor Show.

A lovely showcase at the American motor show in Los Angeles features the 2012 F10 BMW M5, with added goodness of a couple of special paint options being included in the lineup offering.

The new paint finishes are called Frozen Silver and Frozen Gray and they are similar to the ones they sold some limited edition M3s over this and the past year.

No pun intended on the brand new F30 BMW 3 Series but the F10 M5 is considerably more interesting and though a little inconvenient, the new paint looks brilliant.

Further more, BMW plans to introduce the new Frozen Silver finish into the premium paint offerings, thus making it available to all F10 M5 purchases not just those of limited edition stamping.

Mind you, a price of around 5000 dollars for the special exterior skin of the BMW M5 will still keep a shade of exclusivity.

A new paint finish is nice but the 4.4 liter twin turbo V8 engine that can develop 560 horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque is what really gets your heart going.

Accelerating from 0 to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds (or less by some accounts) and a top speed of 155 mph or even 190 mph when in M Driver’s Package.
