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 new M5 is also said to be more sculptured than the M3-like bumper seen in M5 photoshops.
Upon inspection, the photoshopped bumper … 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 Z4 iS. The front bumper in the Autoweek design is what you will see in the actual car but for the iS the openings at the brake ducts are more open and feature the bar across the intake. The rear … 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
These are renderings of the upcoming 2011 F10 BMW M5 from a german car magazine. The specs are the same as already posted here and it comes in 2011 according to the magazine. 578 HP, 0-62 in 4.4 sec, 531 lbf ft torque, Optimized DKG from M3. It will kill RS6/RS7, AMG E63..
There is certainly no lack of spy photos when it comes to the F11 (touring) version of the upcoming 5-series. link1, link2, link3, link4, link5, link6. (See what I mean!). Combining the knowledge of what we know the sedan to look like wth these barely covered up test mules, the people at spyshots.nl have come up with fairly accurate renderings of what the car will look like.
Just to recap, the F11 touring is due to be be officially release in the late summer/fall of 2010, just a short few months after the 5-Series sedan has its time under the limelight.
First and foremost. The photos are only renderings based on what the magazine believes the car will look like. (If you want to see what the car will likely look like, our collection of spy photos are here: http://www.bimmerpost.com/?s=f10+m5&…bimmerpost.com. The most revealed of the spyphoto sets is this one: http://f10.5post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=303014).
But on to the guts of the story. The car itself is destined to arrive in late 2010/2011 as a 2011 model. CAR magazine expects that the car will have:
4.4-litre V8 bi-turbo
578bhp, 530lb ft
155mph limited top speed
Unlimited top speed 188mph
The 4.4l V8 M engine would be the … CONTINUED
The sister publication of Autobild "Allrad" has a new Huckfeldt interpretation of the forthcoming BMW X3 Sport Activity Vehicle. As of all the publications who have created illustrations of the X3 , This interpretation stands out as the closest to the production car which this time around will be built at BMWs Spartanburg plant in South Carolina.
Taking as many of the characteristics from the E83 and refining them such as the rising glasshouse towards the rear of the car coincides with a sloping coupe like roof at the rear quarter this brings the X3s characteristic rear quarter light a better resolved solution allowing it to be smaller and more shapely. The visual appeareance of the car adds more muscle to … CONTINUED
