When BMW unveiled the updated 5 Series range yesterday, they did not reveal the top-of-the-line F90 M5.

That said, a photo has been circulating on social media, which could very well be the 2021 F90 BMW M5 LCI (Life Cycle Impulse, facelift in BMW language).

The current-generation F90 BMW M5 was introduced here in 2018

As seen BMW M boss Markus Flasch's Instagram account, he took the covers off the upcoming F90 M5, giving us a quick glimpse at the new sports sedan.

Note the lower air intakes for the turbocharged V8 engine

Compared to the outgoing F90 M5, the upcoming facelifted model is expected to gain a revised front bumper, likely with redesigned air intakes. Similar to the rest of the refresh 5 Series range, the F90 M5 LCI gains a pair of revised headlights and new front grille.

Under the hood, we can expect the same 4.4-litre TwinPower Turbo V8 to soldier on with similar output figures (600 PS, 750 Nm), mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Flasch also said that the F90 M5 LCI will be introduced over the next couple of weeks.
