With a year left before the official launch date, BMW’s newest invention, Progressive Activity Sedan, PAS or F5 codenames, has been spotted again testing in the Death Valley (thanks Jalopnik). But as we are used to by now, BMW has done again an amazing job camouflaging the test mule, so we can’t really tell much.
But here is what we know so far: the BMW Progressive Activity Sedan (PAS) will be sitting on an extended 5 Series platform, in this case the new 5er, codenamed F10, that will be released also in 2010. Interesting move by BMW, using a similar platform on two cars that will be released around the same time, making the testing process even more efficient.
We also know that the oversized front grille found on the new BMW 7 Series will most likely make its way into the PAS as well, a direction in which BMW decided to take on other future models as well.
Other than that, nothing new people, I think the previous spy photos were a little more revealing, but we are better off waiting for better shots before we make up our mind about this PAS.
