    Re: New M5 rumor mill gossip

    It thought that it is very unlikely that BMW uses the word saloon for a limousine/sedan at the Geneva auto show but maybe they would, I don't have a clue, just a guess.

    Since these photos aren't the real deal anyway, BMW M confirmed it, it is actually a waste of time to continue this.

    Re: New M5 rumor mill gossip

    "Saloon", being the British English word is more likely to be used in a European motor show, rather than "sedan" which is an american expression. Then again this could be a photoshop; who knows?

    WorldCarFans are reporting that BMW engineers have run into problems getting the DCT box to work and that the car may come only with an 8 speed auto www.worldcarfans.com/111021630741/an-automatic-only-bmw-m5


    Re: New M5 rumor mill gossip

     And again - this is the real deal! I would make a bet!

    Lets see what they show in Geneva

    BMW already denied it. Smiley

    It also doesn't make sense that a "secret" model is just sitting around in the open weeks ahead of the start of the autoshow in Geneva.

    Re: New M5 rumor mill gossip

    Defenetly photoshop, which was made about half year ago..

    RC: M5 will be shown in Shanghai in April.

    Whoopsy: Those are final wheels:


    Re: New M5 rumor mill gossip

     DAMNNNN..... this photoshop is so good. Just check the various angles - they all match. It really looks like a picture! Still not convinced. And that BMW denies it is understandable!

    The interior shots I have to admit, looks fake. Especially the light color ceiling doesnt go with an M - they have normally a black roof!


    Re: New M5 rumor mill gossip

     

    Wheels are wrong, rear bumper isn't accurate ... Smiley but its really well made photoshop - looks like a real picture.

    If these photos were real, BMW wouldn't deny it and they wouldn't leave them posted on the official BMW M forum for M drivers. Smiley When somebody posted a photo of the 1M without camoflage ahead of the official presentation, they deleted it.

    Yes, the photos look great. Somebody seems to be a real artist.

    Re: New M5 rumor mill gossip

    There are a few giveaways but someone put a lot of effort into it. The lighting is very consistent throughout all pictures. Really well done.

    The interior picture is taken straight from the configurator and the glove compartment´s handle has not been masked off when using the red leather colour; front bumper, rearview mirrors and exhaust outlets are different when comparing different angles on these pictures.


    Re: New M5 rumor mill gossip

    @Shakal those wheels looks a lot better.

    Funny enough I think they look really boring. Smiley

    But still better than the first ones. Smiley

    Re: New M5 rumor mill gossip

    ...the best indicator for a PS are the wheels without any M badge besides that BMW never would have taken these wheels for the M5 Smiley

    Re: New M5 rumor mill gossip

     Those wheels are from back on 2007, they belong to the CS Concept car.

    OT: IMO if bmw built this they'd have a long list of buyers fot it. it does look very good.

    AFAIK this version is already in the cards: after the new 6 convertible we will see the 6 coupé, which will be followed by a four-door-coupé-version as a CLS-competitor, which will look more or less like the CS Concept.

    Unfortunately not... BMW 8 would have a lot of clues from CS concept, but it was cancelled. It would be luxury coupe in higher price range than 7 series (if I remember corrent, price would start at about 160.000 EUR). 

     

     IMO this would be the best looking BMW ever ...

     

    and this is BMW 6 Gran Coupe concept..:

     

     


    Re: New M5 rumor mill gossip

    Shakal, are you sure that it is cancelled? I read in some car magazine lately that this version will come.

     Too bad, +1 best looking bmw ever. The 6GC doesn't even come close, it takes cues from it but the original beauty is lost.

    Yes, we won't see car based on CS concept in production.. CLS competitor will be BMW 6 Gran Coupe..

    Emmanuel: I couldn't agree more.. 


    Re: New M5 rumor mill gossip

    wow that looks nice!

     

    That bonnet sure looks long!
