Here are some more photos caught once again by the guys over at spyshots.nl. Its still unclear if this front bumper will be the standard new bumper on the X5 or if this represents an M-Sport edition bumper for the X5. At the rear, there will be similar matching changes to the rear bumper and LED taillights which would likely be the most obvious of all the changes.
Seen here is the next gen Alpina B5 already in testing. That Alpina already has a F10 5-series to work with shows the close relationship that the Germany manufacturer/tuner continues to have with BMW. This continues a trend of Alpina having access to still-in-development BMWs prior to the models debut. We most recently saw the Alpina B7 in development prior to its introduction.
Here are photos of the upcoming F10 M5 spotted for the first time without a camoflage suit, with only camoflage tape and a bumper covering.
Auto Motor und Sports photogs have been able to snap some more pictures of the red E89 Z4 that were posted up earlier (and of higher resolution). ( http://e89.zpost.com/forums/showthread.php?t=302539 ). Nevertheless these pictures do show the car is a different perspective and makes me appreciate more-so where BMW is going with this design.
With all the changes to the BMW X lineup in the last 6-12 months it seems as tho the current X5 has been left behind a little bit. Not that we are all for such a rapid turnover in design tweaks, nevertheless it seems as tho every X car is either being completly redone or refreshed. So it does make sense that the bread and butter X5 not be treated as a second class citizen and get some updates as well. These photos … CONTINUED
The first MINI Crossman Concept car appeared at the Paris show last year and created a big buzz online. Since then BMW has been flaunting this test car all over as it prepares the production ready version of the car. Im happy BMW are properly tuning the car at the Nurburgring and giving it the chops it needs to be a proper MINI.
Here it is folks! The F10 M5 front bumper design has finally been exposed! Borrowing heavily from the current M3, it looks right at home on the M5.
The first confirmed prototype for the next-generation BMW M5 has been spotted testing on the Nürburgring. A thin fabric bra covering the prototype’s front fascia can’t hide the clear M-style front-bumper design. With BMW M’s trademark quad exhaust set-up poking out from the rear bumper, and large, cross-drilled rotors accenting the beefed-up braking system, the prototype has all of the necessary ///M cues.
Reports still vary on what engine will power the next M5. Earlier reports spoke of increasing the displacement of today’s 5.0-liter V10 to 5.5-liters, … CONTINUED
The E89 Z4 is now testing at the ring with its Msport body (or performance aero kit) ! This is potentially the 3.5iM, a slightly uprated power version of the standard 3.5i.
Featured in this video are various F10 5-series in motion. Until now we have really only seen the 5-series with the minimal camoflage in still photos. While the video isnt of the greatest quality, you can clearly tell that the car looks great in motion… IMO.
One of the new colors seen in the video is a new Amethyst Silver color for the upcoming F10.
