Video: BMW releases official M5 flick

BMW just can't seem to help itself when it comes to sharing frosty videos of the next-generation M5 undergoing winter testing. The German automaker has released this second clip to accompany the first, complete with plenty of shots of the muscle-bound sedan getting sideways on the powder. We're a little handicapped by the fact that we don't speak German, but that certainly didn't stop us from enjoying watching the big four door do what it does best on the white stuff.

We still can't help but feel a pang of remorse for the loss of the naturally-aspirated V10 that powers the current M5, but from what we hear, the new twin-turbo V8 will give us plenty to sing about. Unfortunately, rumor has it that buyers won't be able to pick up their next-gen M5 with a manual transmission. Still, we've got our fingers crossed that BMW will still offer a third pedal in the meanest of the fives. After all, if American buyers can take home the new 6 Series with a row-your-own gearbox, a manual transmission option shouldn't be too much of a stretch for the M5. Hit the jump to check out the video for yourself.
