As with any new model, BMW made an habit of bringing their designers into the spotlight and giving them a chance to explain their latest creation. Jacek Frohlich, Exterior Designer of BMW 5 Series, and BMW’s Chief Designer, Adrian Van Hooydonk, take the time to outline the design lines of the latest 5 Series.
In some people’s opinion, the new F10 5 Series carries a lot of unique design aspects of the current 2010 3 and 7-Series models. The headlights and front end share a lot with the 5 GT and the 335i. The headlights are slightly modified over the 3-Series units and much smaller than the 5-Series GT, making the new F10 its own uniquely styled BMW. The eyebrow remains an important characteristic in the latest headlights’ design.
Also, the hood is a design feature shared with the current 6 and 3-Series, a look enhanced by the creases coming across the hood. And we’re very pleased to say this, it looks incredibly sporty and aggressive.
The rear-end design has always been an area where BMW typically has taken a less aggressive look to appease more of the subtle luxury crowd, but now they really give you something to stare at when you’re trailing behind the new car, for whatever reason that may be… The taillights are also been highly praised by many BMW fans.
So, let’s let BMW designers explain the new BMW 5 Series exterior design.
