We've seen the virtual reality images, but here's the real Infiniti M56.

Infiniti may have “revealed” the new M in 3D virtual reality earlier this year, but never mind that, we have the REAL thing!

On my morning run today, I unexpectedly stumbled upon two pre-production testers. No clay models here – these were as real as it gets. Sporting cues from the Essence Concept, nothing is left to the imagination with this test car, as only a few poorly placed pieces of tape cover the badges.

Launching in spring of 2010, the new M will be powered by a 3.7-liter V6, (the M37), or 5.6-liter V8, (the M56), good for more than 400 horsepower. A high performance V6 diesel also will be available in Europe.

Technology-wise, the new M will have a blind spot monitoring system and an advanced climate control system, among the additional line-up of features.
