Auto enthusiasts and gamers alike have a few things in common and one of those things is Need for Speed, one of the most successful racing game franchises of all times. It isn’t uncommon for real vehicles to make their way into the game. BMW has been working hard to keep the new BMW M5 under wraps for the time being. Unfortunately for them (and fortunately for us), the title card for Need for Speed Payback may have accidentally unveiled the upcoming model.
While the BMW model isn’t the center of the title card, it does draw the eye. The front end’s design doesn’t match any existing M model. The headlights, on the other hand, match the BMW 5 Series. Since Need for Speed tends to include performance cars, enthusiasts believe the title card accidentally revealed the upcoming M5 performance model.
Other evidence that suggests or proves the new BMW M5 is pictured on the title card is past spy photos.
There’s no firm confirmation for or against the title card previewing the BMW M5. The German automaker hasn’t released a release date just yet. More information should be forthcoming throughout the year.
We here at Perillo BMW are excited for the arrival of the new BMW M5!
