The production version of the BMW 5-series GT continues road testing in Germany and the car seems to follow the "concept" car, that was shown off last month, nearly verbatim. These latest shots are high-resolution and shot in real world lighting which I believe show off the true curves of this car that were somewhat lost in the press release photos that were under heavy lighting. Seeing the car in real world conditions confirms to ME that this car has some very well thought out styling cues and will look great from most angles. However, there is no hiding that high trunk that will be an instant turn off for many, but for them, the standard 5-series will be a better fit anyway. This car is … CONTINUED
The upcoming BMW 5-series finally looses her camoflage armour in exchange for the psychadelic graphics. BMW has officially begun the striptease for the new 5-series and I cant wait to see more….
Ever since the new BMW 5-Series (F10) has had its front bumper publically outed and then what seemed to be a page from the advertising brochure, the photoshoppers have been going all out to create mimicks of what the car may look like. Jon Sibal gives us a high quality interpretation

Talk about a major screwup. Here we have a leaked photo of the F10 5 Series front end. This is no photoshop job, this is the real deal and it seems to have been leaked WAY in advance of the release of this car and I’d have to assume this is unintended. I do have to say that this looks to be the best styled 5-series ever and I’m in serious anticipation of this car!!

These are the very first pictures of the new BMW 5-series Touring. Snapped testing in Germany, the new 5-series estate will boast BMW’s latest Efficient Dynamics technology, Concept CS-inspired looks, an eight-speed automatic gearbox and a further development of the current car’s aluminium and steel platform.
But the new 5-series Touring will still have a sloping rear end so if you’re after a particularly roomy 5-series we’d suggest its sister, Progressive Activity Sedan (PAS) isntead, which BMW insiders claim offers as much interior space as a Rolls-Royce Phantom.

I would classify this as MAJOR news. It seems somehow a photo of the new 5 Series (F10) bumper has been leaked onto the internet so we now have a complete idea of half of the front end of this car. Let the photoshopping begin!

BMW is currently developing a F5 / V5 based on the upcoming F10 5-series. Its best described as an MPV, but unlike the current Touring models the new cars will feature a taller ride-height and high roof to maximize interior space.
In these photos we can now see the exposed grill, including slats. Like the new F01 7-series, the F01 5-series clearly looks to have significantly larger kidney grills up front.

Well folks, the next big step in the upcoming 5-series technical development has finally arrived. The car has now been seen lapping the famed Nurburgring.
The new 5 is still seen wearing its heavy armour suit, but the car is said to borrow heavily from the BMW Concept CS styling to create a more reserved but aggressive look at compared to the current car.
Whats to be expected?
Unsurprisingly, the car will have big kidney grills, ala Concept CS, new 7-series and X6.
Conservative headlights with integrated LED powered eyebrows similar to the current 7-series in idea.
The car will also be a technological advancement platform that will see further evolutions in … CONTINUED
