Police in Germany already benefit from BMW 5-Series sedans and wagons in their fleet, but soon they could get a lust-worthy M5 to chase after crims. BMW has unveiled an M5 decked out with police gear, though this one is only a concept.

The M5 police car, which is on display at the BMW Welt museum at the automaker’s headquarters in Munich, Germany, was developed in conjunction with a number of real law-enforcement vehicles that will be making their debut this month at the General Police Equipment Exhibition & Conference in Leipzig, also in Germany.

BMW will also display more police concept vehicles at the Leipzig event, including a police version of the i3 electric car.

As for the M5 police car, no details have been released, though like most BMW police cars we suspect this one has been fitted with iDrive-controlled warning lights, LED identification lights and sirens straight from the factory. The vehicle also sports a blacked-out grille.

Under the hood should be the M5’s familiar twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8 with output tuned to 560 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque. With the M-DCT dual-clutch gearbox, 0-60 mph acceleration takes around 4.4 seconds and top speed comes in at 190 mph (with the optional M Driver's Package).
