Here are some more photos of the recently spied F10 M5 test mule. The striptease has recently accelerated with the uncovering of the front fascia from its previous camouflage mask.
The F10 M5 seen currently in winter testing has shed some of its front end camouflage to reveal more of the M5 than recently seen. If you look closely, you can make out the lower front fascia design behind the remaining black tape, which appears to cover the entire front bumper. Other external parts may yet remain preproduction version — the final hood will likely see a power bulge (a signature ///M feature), the fenders may yet be widened, the mirrors become sleeker, and the wheels will certainly be larger and a sportier design.
See these PREVIOUS PHOTOS for what the final front bumper and wheel design will likely be.

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.
MINI Cooper S Facelift has been spotted and is likely imminent, follow the link for the full set of photos: http://www.miniforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=699
Nothing new in these pictures compared to the already seen F30 spy photos, but new photos always means new angles and perspectives, so we thought we’d post these up.
It seems that almost all prototypes for upcoming BMW models are currently somewhere in frozen northern Scandinavia conducting cold winter testing, and that includes the upcoming BMW F10 M5. Spotted here is the F10 M5 in Northern Sweden, testing its winter handling abilities.
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.
What you are seeing here is the clearest teaser yet of the BMW M1 concept which is widely speculated to be making its debut at the 2010 Geneva auto show in just over a week’s time. Wide rear fenders appear on the M1 concept, as well what could be a vent or diffuser behind the rear fenders.
We bring you these newest spy photos of upcoming 2011 BMW X3 (F25) spotted for the first time with only tape camouflage. The car is now more fully revealed as we can clearly see the front bumper design, grills, and headlamp shape, as well as the profile shape, side windows, and rear tail light shape. Overall, it appears to be an improvement in looks over the current outgoing X3 model.
Production of the new X3 is to be moved to South Carolina in the newly expanded plant alongside the other X vehicles.
The car itself is built upon a shared platform with the next generation 3-series (F30) and since the X3 will be released before the next generation … CONTINUED
