Updated with new photo: Many renderings of the 2011 BMW 5 Series have been going around for a while, some closer to the real deal than others. Many believed that the next 5 Series will be taking lots of design elements from the bigger brother, 7 Series, and they came up with a scaled down version of the 7er.

Obviously, they were wrong. Historically, the BMW 5 Series was never considered the 7er little sibling and this is NOT about to change now. But what we can tell you for sure is that the 2011 BMW 5 Series will indeed combine several design cues from other models, starting with the canceled CS Concept, the new 5 Series GT and the 2009 BMW 7 Series.

So, by collecting all the information we posted in the last few months and with the huge help from the leaked photo of the 5 Series, we decided to ask our friend Andy Valencia to draw a new rendering for us.

While the production model might suffer some design modifications, we believe that the front-end is not far from the real deal. As things develop and new information will come in, we’ll make sure to update the rendering and include rear-end shots as well.


Here is another rendering, same approach:

    mmm… i dont know… something’s not right

  2. AUL says:

    Those lines down the center of the hood look off…

  3. Frederico Silva says:

    I like, but i like more of the current one, but i’m curious about the back =D Just can’t wait to see the oficial presentation :D

  4. Frederico Silva says:

    i think the fogg lights and the grille where they are, are to big

  5. Gord says:

    Maybe the roof line should be lower ?

  6. I think it looks pretty good, so far. Yes, I get what people are saying about the lines in the center of the hood but it doesn’t seem to pronounced to bother me. Its certainly an aggressive look and I actually like that.

    I can’t wait for more photos!

  7. L1ndja says:

    I love it i hope the real one will look something like this because it totally rocks.Cant wait to see the back.Hope it will have the L-shape and i’m confident it will

  8. Lance says:

    It looks like it is alive, staring at me and waiting to take a bit of me!!! Nice though, I think I am getting used to the big nostrils, which is better looking on this car tha the 7.

  9. Horatiu B. says:

    @L1ndja: The lights will definitely have an L-shape, maybe not as high as the 7 Series.

  10. kevin says:

    bland and boring.

  11. Frederico Silva says:

  14. wilbert says:

  15. darvin says:

    hmmm..i think its not dat beautiful as the current 5 series…i think it is becoz of the grille it’s too big i guess..but still i love bmw…hahaha

  16. Jared A says:

    Looks like it came from the Jaguar design team

  17. Messerschmitt says:

    BMW must release F10 now as MY2010, otherwise MB has one year headstart. And BMW must lower the price as MB did on the E-class.

  18. Carlos Perez says:

    I don’t like it too much, it look pretty much like the new 7 series, i mean is not ugly but i think they should be different, because if not it will get boring pretty fast.

  19. keluaran baru udah ga ada ya
