It was just a matter of time until the 2011 BMW 5 Series will begin to reveal itself even more. Latest spy photos published by MotorAuthority are giving away some design details unseen before.

For the first time, the front fascia is almost fully unveiled, with the kidney grille and headlights showing us the final details. As we expected, the corona rings headlights are very close to the ones seen in the 5 Series GT model. The larger than usual kidney grille seen in the new 7 and 5GT has been toned down, but at the same time, it is wider than the current E60 model.

At the rear end, the bumper has been revealed, but the headlights still keep some mystery around them. The test mule seems to feature production ready wheels giving the car the aggressive look we’ve all been waiting for.

As we announced several times before, the new 2011 BMW 5 Series will make its debut next spring at the Geneva Motor Show, but the first official photos will be revealed within the next two months.

Thanks to this photos, we can finally see why BMW has been ecstatic about the new design. The idea behind the new 5 Series was to design a car that looks expensive, but more modern and proportionate than a typical mid segment sedan. Despite the larger size, the new 2011 BMW 5 Series features a more dynamic and sleek styling. Also, the wider track has helped integrating a wider twin kidney grille, far sexier than the one seen in the new 7, at least based on our personal preference.

Along with the new design, the 2011 5 Series F10 will bring a lot of innovative technologies built inside the Munich walls and we’re expecting the new 5 to confirm its status in the mid sedan segment.
