Another day and new photos of the next generation BMW 5 Series due to launch this Spring. If yesterday we had the chance to admire a beautiful black painted 535i, today, our sister blog BimmerToday returns with new photos of a 5 Series sporting the Milano Beige color.
While the color is featured on the 5 Series configurator website, these are actually the first real life photos showing us the color in all its splendor.
The darker colors still remain our favorite when it comes to the new 5, but can’t discard the other options. The 2011 BMW 5 Series will officially launch at the end of this month in Portugal and several test drives and reviews will be provided by the automotive media.
For the U.S. market, production begins in March with first models arriving at BMW dealerships in June. The engine line-up in the U.S. includes the 230 horsepower, naturally aspirated 3.0-liter 528i as the entry-level model and the 300-hp, turbocharged 535i following shortly. Like the new 535i GT, the turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six in the new 535i will now use the N55 twin-scroll engine.
The high-end model remains the 550i, a 400-horsepower luxury sedan powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8.
