I was looking through the BMW news on World Car Fans and found their new artist rendering of what the new 5-Series could look like. What do you think?

There have been a good amount of spy shots of the new 2011 5-Series that is supposed to debut in 2010, or the F10 as it will also be known.

Personally, I don’t like it at all. I think it is too bland and doesn’t represent what BMW has been trying to accomplish. I kind of like the headlights and the big kidney grills, but the rest of the car leaves a lot to be desired. The design is based largely on the BMW CS Concept.

The new F10 5er will bring about the new 4.4L Twin-Turbo V8 for the 550i that debuted in the X6 xDrive50i. The Twin-Turbo V8 will put out roughly 400hp and 450lb-ft of torque. It will also be in the new F01/02 750. The 535d 3.0L diesel will hopefully make its way into the U.S. market as well with the new 5-Series. The rest of the engines are not likely to change. Expect to see a new powerplant in the M5, possibly featuring a better version of the standard Twin-Turbo V8 that will power the regular 550. Also expect to see the new M-DCT in the 5-Series as a whole.
