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.
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.
Here are the first photos of an F10 5-series sedan right alongside the F11 5-series touring. As one can see, besides the difference in roofline and the rear design, the F11 touring retains the F10s beautiful lines and design features.
The F10 sedan is due to bow its head in just another few weeks at the Geneva autshow and this F11 Wagon will then appear at the Paris autoshow later in the year, with availablity at dealerships in the summer/fall of 2010. Until then, enjoy some more spy video!
Admist the recent flurry of F10 5-series reviews its nice to see the car from a different perspective. In this case, the perspective is as simple as a color change. Given that Alpine White is one of the more popular colors for BMWs in the USA, we will be very likely to see this color combination ALOT, and its nice to see the F10 wear this color so well.
First 2011 5-series spotted in Milano Beige, a color not usually very eye catching, except that it sits on the F10s beautiful sheet metal.
These are the best photos and video of a black F10 2011 5-series yet. These final prototype F10s are being driven by BMW employees as part of the final testing and evaluation process.

Not much camoflage remains on the F11 5-series touring/wagon, which gives us these clear peeks at how great titanium silver looks on the F11. The world debut of the F11 touring is expected to occur at the 2010 Paris Auto Show.
Ever since the F10 was officially unveiled to the world, the F11 has had most of its camo removed, for good reason. The shape and look of the car is known at this point. What is left is for BMW to put the finishing touches to the car and finish up testing in time for the official world premier of this car, later in the year in Paris.
The look of the touring/wagon (f11) compliments the sedan version nicely and goes for the ultra modern and … CONTINUED
The new F11 aka the 5-Series touring (wagon) seen here in a basicly de-camod state reveals that the midsize BMW wagon will continue with the tried in true format now packaged under the F10 style skin.
