Images of BMW’s new Concept M5
have been up for several weeks but until now we’re yet to see any details of its interior. Before you gasp note that the Concept M5 is just a preview of the upcoming 2012 BMW M5 due at September’s 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show so the almost substandard look of the cabin seen here is understandable.
What we can see is a mix of Alcantara or possibly suede material used for much of the trim, including on the door innards and seats. The seats themselves can’t be completely seen, but we can expect to see automatic adjusting side bolsters feature, and possibly carbon fiber construction make it to the production units.
The image of the instrument cluster reveals a 330 kmh (205 mph) marking on the speedometer and a rev-counter that goes all the way up to 8,000 rpm.
A BMW M steering wheel with distinct blue, red and white stitching also features and includes the usual assortment of chassis controls. Finally, BMW's M-DCT dual clutch transmission shift lever with the Drivelogic shift modes also appears to be present.
