BMW has announced it will be adding an estate version to its forthcoming high performance M5 line up.
With the seventh generation of the new M5 saloon now undergoing final testing before its release later in the year, the Bavarian car maker has revealed that a Touring model will be added to the range in 2024.
Like the saloon, the M5 Touring will feature a completely newly developed partially electrified drive system.
The first BMW M5 Touring was launched back in 1992 based on the second-generation BMW M5.
In 2007, BMW M added a Touring variant to the fourth-generation BMW M5.
Testing of the first prototypes of the new BMW M5 Touring is to commence in the next few days in urban traffic as well as on country roads and motorways around Munich and at the BMW M GmbH headquarters in Garching.
All drive and suspension systems for the new BMW M5 Touring will be proved on the Nurburgring's Nordschleife, among other places, with the aim of ensuring the ideal balance of sporting performance on the racetrack and superior ride comfort in everyday driving and over long distances.
Further details are still to be announced but teaser images of the new M5 have been released showing the car under camouflage and rear detail.
