I think these are old obsolete pictures that was a good photo-shop of the 550i.......

There are spy photos of a real M5 (still partially in camouflage) at Amsterdam's Schiphol airport and some which appear to be taken at BMW M in Garching (which show the rear end):

Note in the Schiphol photos that the number of grille slats (10) do not match the count in the photo in the first post here (12). The BMW USA website (BMW North America) has photos of a 550i which has 12 slats per grille. So the white "M5" in the original post does appear to be a photo-shopped 550i. There are also 10 slats per grille in the winter spy shots of an M5 in this thread: http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/f1...s-12th-january-2011-wintertesting-sweden.html

Also the side mirrors in the original post here have the shape of an E60 M5 while the spy shots from Schiphol show side mirrors not seen on any other BMW to date. So, not the real deal.

My guess is the original photos in the original post were taken when the F10 5 series production cars were shown in March 2010 at the Geneva auto show (which explains the "World Premier" in French in the background).
