The new BMW M5 is not afraid to get wet – Click above to watch video after the jump

Are you currently suffering from BMW M5 withdrawal? Autoblog is here to help, and we'd like to offer up a video that will allow you to cope while you wait for the production version of the newest M5 to be revealed. BMW is still testing and fine-tuning the F10 M5, but the German automaker has been kind enough to bring a camera along to capture the more exciting bits.

Test drivers examine how the M5 responds to wet weather, steep inclines and smoky launches. Here's a spoiler for you; it handles all of that quite well. But you don't have to take our word for it. Click past the jump to see for yourself.

      I like the part where they said three or four times that their aim was to make it "faster and more luxurious than it's predecessor, and we've already proven that". Say what you will about redlines and "lazy turbos", IT'S (reportedly) FAST!!!!

      Wow, that sounds great and looks pretty fast. Really curious what the reviews will be like. The specs are there (faster than the previous gen) but will it be a driver's car?

      Did anyone else notice the comment about "testing the sequential and automatic transmission"?
