Part 3 (last) of the 5-series GT feature series, showing how BMW conducts high speed and final testing, wrapping up a 5 year development period.
This titanium F10 5-series was spotted on the highway to Munich. Its one of the final production prototypes given to BMW employees for testing and subjected to every day use and every aspect is logged and submitted to the project team.

Must see Part 2 of the 5-series GT feature series, including some interesting insight into the prototype building, camouflage, and testing process.
From sketch to reality is a long and certainly daunting process for any automaker. And one that is always a bit shrouded by mystery for the average enthusiast. With the 5er GT BMW decided to give everyone some insight into the working behind the scenes at BMW with these multipart videos on the process.
Even if you are not a fan of this car (believe me, it really grows on you ALOT) these videos are worth the watch just too get a glimpse into what goes into the design and development of a BMW.
M3post members have compiled this excellent M3 exhaust compilation video featuring 9 exhausts under light and heavy acceleration and fly-by.
Crazy F01 7-series owner handling his new 7-series in ways you have never seen an F01 being driven! Bimmerpost does not condone this type of driving in any way.
