Our spy photographer just sent these pictures of the updated BMW M5 testing at the Nürburgring. In these photos, we can see the M5 showing off its new front bumper.

Under the hood, expect a biturbo V-8 making 578 horsepower to replace the current V-10. No official word yet, but a dual-clutch transmission is a likely bet. The M5 looks pretty close to being ready for production, so it might be showing up at the Paris Motor Show this October.
