Some all new wallpapers have been released by BMW, especially notable is that they’ve taken the time to include both the 5 series sedan and wagon in the same photoshoot for those wanting the visual comparison. Some new detail videos have also been uploaded.
BMW tuner RDSport has always been good about coming up with conceptuals on new tuning packages on BMWs and putting them into play via photoshop. Many times, they get their work out before the car has even hit the streets in an official capacity, as in this case. Although details are still thin on this car, I love the proposed bodywork and the wheels suit the new bodykit well. Heres to hoping we see the real deal soon enough!
12 hours after german site bild.de leaked out a few photos, BMW has officially released the full slew of technical data, photos, wallpapers and videos revolving around the F11 BMW 5 Series Touring. These have been collected up in our official thread dedicated to the 5 series touring / estate. The car will make its official world debut in April, but until then enjoy the online media surrounding the latest BMW release.
The F10 Alpina B5 has been undergoing testing near Alpina’s headquarters. The F10 B5 is expected to be based on the F10 550i, with a reworked 4.4L N63 motor (V8 twin turbo). The new B5 features the current signature front bumper lip, sideskirts, wheels, quad exhaust, and raised trunk lid. An impression of the final B5 is below.
Top Gear online has great things to say about the F10 535i after their test drive. Calling it a “serious return to form”, with an excellent ride, smart details and lovely quality throughout. Check out their review.
The F10 5-series will be manufactured in BMW’s plant in Dingolfing, Germany. As part of its website, BMW has set up a page dedicated to the plant, including a Virtual Plant Tour feature, which includes a view into the F10 5-series production process.
The focus of the BMW display at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show was definitely the F10 5-series, 4 of which were featured front and center. Here is a collection of all our F10 5-series photos from the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, including the ActiveHybrid concept, a white F10, and a space gray F10.
AC Schnitzer has debuted their X1 and 5-series GT at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. Details and photos inside.
The long-wheelbase-version of the F10 5-series has just been spotted in Sweden. Approximately 12 inches longer than the standard F10 5-series sedan, the LWB 5-series will approach 7-series length. It will be produced in China only for the Chinese (and possibly also Middle East) market.
The extra length is in the rear doors, which lends itself to a roomier passenger compartment. The LWB F10 5-series is expected to bow at the 2010 Beijing Motor Show.
