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.
Certainly BMW shows this car off soon, until then the photoshoppers will fill the void and give us wonderful takes on what the car could look like. Here is one based on the few leaked details we know about this car thus far.

Indeed that is awful. Good news (for me and the other countless M5 Touring owners throughout Europe et all) I was informed that there will be a F11 M5 Touring as the car has proved to be very popular even the final production models are being snapped up as we speak.
I think I may … CONTINUED
Although the real Alpina F10 based B5 is still many moons away from reality, that obviously doesn’t stop any real enthusiast with a copy of Photoshop and a good eye from imagining what may be. 5Post member zerenico has done just that and has come up with a stunning photoshop that likely gives us a fairly good look at what a B5 could look like
Check out these beautiful renders of one of BMWs most hotly anticipated new M cars — the F10 BMW M5. The new M5 is expected to bow in one years time at the 2011 Geneva auto show, a year after the regular F10 5-series sedan makes its world premiere at the 2010 Geneva show next month.
Here is a render of the upcoming BMW M1 by a 1addicts member. Although it’s missing certain elements we’re sure to see on the M1, this render gives some preview as to how the car will look with aggressive M-style front bumper, front fender gill, carbon fiber roof, and wheels.
Well, there is no end to the photoshops of the upcoming M5 that have been bubbling to the surface. The general notion is that the cars line will follow the E90/E92 M3 front bumper however it will be significantly more angular (think X5/X6 M) and obviously wider to fill out the larger 5-Series based body
Here is the latest artistic impression of the F30 from Germanys AutoBild magazine. As you can see this impression is highly BMW CS Concept car influenced.
After looking at these pictures, Scott26 had this to say:
That broken rear shoulder line actually has its roots in BMW history too most recently it was revived on the CS Concept Car. … CONTINUED
Here you see a rendering of the upcoming BMW M1 from Autozeitung magazine. According to BMW marketing insider Scott26, “The look is very close to the aerodynamic pack that adorns the M1″ (minus the metallic crossbars). The magazine also mentions that the M1 will go on sale in Summer 2011, with 355 bhp, 0-60 mph under 5 seconds, and M3 suspension!
The concept M1 is expected at the Geneva Auto Show.
This F10 M5 photoshop was posted by BMW insider Scott as he mentioned that the F10 M5 photoshops floating around have all relied too much on the M3s looks. Instead, its suggested that we look to the X5M/X6Ms "sharper" looks for the upcoming M5 and M1s design. We take this to mean that the M5s bumper will be more aggressive as in this image, rather than the M3-like bumper seen in most M5 photoshops.
The rear valence and diffuser on the … CONTINUED
Here is a very insightful post by BMW insider Scott26/27 who mentions that an iS version of the X3 is definitly fair game, especially in the USA where such a model could find itself in some demand.
BMW have high hopes for this Sport Activity Vehicle that the design department are working on a iS Specification model with an Aerodynamic pack reminiscent of the new … CONTINUED
Here are some more renders of the upcoming M5 published by Auto Motor und Sport in Germany (link). Nothing really new here that hasnt been covered by other renders out there, but I thought id throw this out there
