    2010 BMW 5 series (F10) leak

    Waw, leak is about 1 year sooner than it would be expected... Smiley Thats very unusual, but.... here is 100% real picture of new 5 series :

    Looks like someone took a picture on a distrubutor event for BMW Spain...


    Re: 2010 BMW 5 series (F10) leak

    I think new 5er will be one heck of a car:)  535d with sport M package would be the ultimate daily driver if they decide to go with the current engines.

    It looks very promising.  Besides the kidneys seem to form one piece together with the front trunk (bonnet), whereas on the 7-series they are one part with the front bumper.  I like the 7-series design but one thing I do not like is the kidneys being part of the bumper.  Notice that on the 7-series sketches the kidneys are one with the front trunk.  Probably because of manufacturing reasons they had to deviate from the initial design.

    I think there is nothing like a leak. Its all marketing strategy. They just want to tell potential New E-Class Buyers, wait a little bit longer for our new Bimmer. ;-)

    Which will be worth it, IMO.


    Re: 2010 BMW 5 series (F10) leak

    Are you sure that's an 5 series?

    That front looks very high IMO. alomost like an SUV?

    It's funny you say that, at first glance I thought it had some resemblance to the Audi Q7- especially the light cluster.

    Great catch!

    Car looks great, interesting lines on the hood. Front very similar to the 7. Looking forward to see the whole!

            Yes, 100% its new 5 series. Looks higher because kidneys are almost vertical (due to safety reasons) and because of bad resolution - that picture was showed in presentation and someone took it with mobile phone.

    Here is (already leaked a few months ago) front bumper:

     From now on all new bimmers will have kidneys attached in front bumper. Otherwise is impossible to achieve good results in pedestrian safety tests. Front ends of cars tend to be plastic and this offers a better solution for pedestrian safety .

    Even new Mercedes E class got front mask attached in bumper and is no longer part of a hood..

    Thanks.  Makes perfect sense. Smiley


    Re: 2010 BMW 5 series (F10) leak

    Looks very promisingSmiley

    The most interesting rumor about this car (so far) is that the 2wd versions will be available with the sportdiff from the X6 on the rear axle,  according to german AMS.

    Which means that it should have enough traction and stability without having to drag a heavy 4wd system around.

    A 540i with DCT and sportdiff should be one heck of a car, for a reasonable price.

    Like I said in previous posts, new 5 series will have similar interior like 7 series. Also used materials will be more quality than in current 5 series.

     New pictures - interior:

    And more coupeish roof line:



    Re: 2010 BMW 5 series (F10) leak

    Great pictures - thanks! This car is very promising. Good size for mix between size and sportiness!

            Sorry, this is not 5 series, but a 7 series prototype. I know only that new 5 series will have similar interior to new 7 series, so when I saw article on BMWblog I belived its new 5 series, but insider in BMW told me that this is 7 series... Its fully camouflagued because they are probably testing some components in prototype...

    So far, this is still the best interior shot:

    If they could get close enough for interior shots, why no EXTERIOR shots?

    Unless the mule was disguised in the outgoing 5-Series body shell?

    Re: 2010 BMW 5 series (F10) leak

    Heist, this car was fully camouflaged. So BMWBlog thought its new 5 series, but it was 7 series with full camouflage. They are probably testing some components in old prototype.. Here is picture of that car:

    And here is new 5 series:



    Re: 2010 BMW 5 series (F10) leak

    I have seen so many new five camos yet in real and on pictures. But - all of them have this funny rear windows in plastic and with the matt black triangle. Is there something new to expect (maybe now extra separator for the small triangle)?

            I don't have that detailed informations, but I will ask that..

    Maybe (isn't decided yet) new M5 will have same front as new M6 will have - like M3 sedan got same front as M3 Coupe. Reason for that is for example 520i can have same front as M5, so BMW wants F10 M5 to look more special.

    Also new 5 series will get all steel body frame. Trubular structure is made of thinner multi-phase steel, so torsional stiffness is much better compared to all alu frame or alu - steel frame used on current 5 series. This frame will be a little heavier compared to current alu-steel frame, but because other components will be lighter (will be made with alu, magnesium, composite plastics...) , weight won't incrase a lot - it will be similar to E60's weight, despite it will have more features, more cabin space and car will be a little longer. How much weight will incrase depends on engines, for example, F10 540i will be even lighter than E60 540i. Also some small I4 turbo engines will be available in new 5 series.

    will it be unveiled at Frankfurt?

            Frankfurt is too soon. Initial plan is Geneva 2010.


    Re: 2010 BMW 5 series (F10) leak

    If this is it, it is a big mistake. They are putting in some X6 truckness into what should be a pure sedan NOT GOOD and i like the X6.

    racerx: This is 5 series GT (PAS) . Sedan and touring is in development. So next 5 series will be offered as Sedan, Touring and GT (on your picture).
