BMWs next-generation Z4 has replaced its heavy black shell with a
thin veneer of its new graphic camouflage. Despite the vomit-inducing
nature of the Z4s new disguise, its a huge step forward in terms of
assessing the evolution of the roadsters styling. Many of the
polarizing features of the current Z4s design have been toned-down,
for what appears to be a much more elegant look.
Chris Bangles fussy flame-surfacing seems to have been more or less
extinguished, as the side character lines appear to have a more
logical flow throughout the Z4s surface development. The Z4s twin-
kidney grille takes inspiration from BMWs CS concept, as well as the … CONTINUED
BMWs high-performance X5 mule has hit the Ring again, this time
showing some interesting changes compared to earlier prototypes.
While prior prototypes always had a more aggressive front bumper, the
headlight design remained pure X5. On this newest prototype, the
headlights appear to have been switched out with X6 headlights. If
there are any changes to the X5s deeper front bumper, we cant
discern them through the camouflage.
This latest prototype also features a new rear treatment. Earlier
prototypes used the standard X5 rear valance, mocked-up to accommodate
its new M-style quad exhaust set-up. The X5 shot yesterday, however,

What is this car exactly? Looks like an X6 with a hood scoop. You might be fooled into thinking that this is some sort of ///M variant. In fact this is a planned hybrid drive version of the X6 and the hood scoop is used to mount the monitoring equipment needed for testing.
Here are the first photos of the heavily covered interior of the F10 5-series. Getting a glimpse of an upcoming models interior always provides good insight into the future design language of other upcoming BMW models.
Notice the new side-by-side placement of the gear selector and i-drive knob in the middle console. It appears to resemble the new X5s console. We also get a peak at the new steering wheel.
An upcoming crossover variant based off of the 3-series has been caught testing again. Its current form is that of a E91 touring body on a raised suspension platform (probably just for testing drivetrain/suspension/etc..), which will no doubt be replaced eventually by the crossovers actual body shell.
Here are the first photos of a facelifted M-tech/M-sport E90 Sedan in Space Gray.
Looks like the rear tailights are LED.
