Based on the latest and some of the most revealing spy photos of the 2011 BMW 5 Series, our friend Jon Sibal decided to show us what could be hiding underneath that very light camouflage.

Judging by the spy shot posted by us earlier today, we believe the rendering is very close to the actual design, maybe with a slight adjustment at the bottom of the headlights area.

Looking at the car from this angle, the sleek, svelte look is in line with what we have seen so far. The rendering also features a low roofline and short overhangs, design cues that we’ve been mentioning several times in the past few months.

All we have to say is that if the new 5 will look remotely close to this, we will be extremely satisfied.

      It’s just a rendering. I still think the headlights will be slightly different. I do like the overall design though

        yes overall design is not so bad its bmw,but just like others sad its playing too safe..i hope the real lights are different but i saw them at spy photos its pretty similar to the rendering,and they are oversized!…we’ll see..its very near…

    There’s definitely no ‘wow’ factor with this car. It looks good. That’s it, just good. BMW is playing it safe by using clean lines and making a simple sedan. This car looks like the next generation of the E39, which is nice but I was expecting something more. I feel like I’ve seen this car before, and I’m not impressed.

    I had high expectations, and I don’t think this rendering meets those expectations. I’ll have to see it in person before I can make a final determination, but I feel like I’ve already owned this car. (I had a ’98 E39 528i)

  • Bryce

    I just looked at pictures of the new E-class and I agree with Vaybach that the front of the E-Class might look better than this rendering, but the rear of the E-class looks a bit like a Kia to me.

    • Peter Louies

      I was driven a few hundred meters behind an E-class some time ago and when it hitted the brakes I thought that’s a new KIA or a new Korean car. When I drove by I noticed it was the new E-class. A few days later I noticed the same remark in a car magazine so I am not alone on this. Mercedes should do it’s homework better.

    BORING. Not an ugly car but very conservative. No sure how this will attract new customers. Will have to see it in person

    • http://www.bmwblog.com Horatiu B.

      I think conservative is good, even though I see a lot of evolution when compared to the E60. The car definitely looks sleek, sporty….and I have no doubt it will look stunning in person. Think about the 5 GT….EVERYONE hated the car in photos, but we all fell for it when saw it in person.

    stupid headlight

  • badger

    i still hate the 5 gt for it’s ugly ass rear
    but honestly i like the new design concept for the new 5er
    it A MILLION times better than the outgoing 5.

  • Giom

    Looks very good – for a render. We all know (or should know) that the actuall car will look MUCH better in photographs, and then even better in the flesh.

    Can’t be too long now…?

  • joe

    if this render anywhere close to the real thing i would spent all the money that i HAVENT GOT on an xf

    • Artmic

      You want to buy a Jaguar XF ? :) that looks like a Chrysler Concorde the front? :)

  • Adnan

    I hate the front, the current e60 is one of the most beautiful bmws ever to me, this one is just weird and plain

  • viper

    it looks like a whole new class , its low and wide its different 5 series….though I still think the E class will be better when compared..why not launch the M5 at the same time , it would be kick ass

  • Artmic

    I totally like this rendering more than the current weird looking 5 :)

  • Peter Louies

    The current 5-series was perfect for me from a design standpoint.

    What I don’t like are the headlights and you can also see it on the spy photos.

    The headlights are too much coming from the current 3-series. I don’t see much CS concept in it. It makes me also think of the headlights of the 6-series or the previous 7-series. I do hope it looks better in real.

    The rear side looks to be a little too high and almost a little too much like a Lexus.

      Then again, it could just be the rendering.

    I really liked the current E60. Wasn’t crazy about the interior but exterior was pretty nice. Wasn’t the current E60 its best selling 5 ever?

    Anyhow, change is always needed but this is too safe in my books. Will have to see it in the M /sports package

  • Plamen

    looks nice but no way:)…good try for the 3rd series coupe!!!

  • yr27

    lol this is a renderin……duh it wouldnt look as good.from what i see in the spy shots i think this is gonna be 1 fantastic lookin beemer.and who ever says an e class is better lookin or much wilder is blind.the e class is boarin n boxy.the new 5 is gonna be the class leader.esp here in south africa

  • efoza
