Update: It seems like we were wrong, the car in this image is the current 3 series with an X1 front-end. We’re not sure why, but it definitely fooled us.
Thanks to rot member of Bimmerpost, today we have the best and newest spy photo of the upcoming BMW PAS, short for Progressive Activity Sedan, or the 5 Series GT, as BMW might ended up calling the new vehicle.

The new photo shows the 5er GT being in the pre-final evaluation phase where the plastic body parts covering the car are being replaced by the funky camo pattern.

As you can see in the photo, the front-grille is quite large when compared to other BMW models, in  line with what we learned in the past that the  Progressive Activity Sedan will take some design cues from the recently revealed BMW 7 Series and it will be marketed as a model between the 2010 BMW 5 Series and the 7 Series.

The PAS/5-series GT is slightly longer than a 5-series sedan and just shorter than a 7-series. We also know that it will be longer than the X6, measuring around 192.91 inch.

The new vehicle will make its debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show and going on sale, early next year, before the new 2010 BMW 5 Series is unveiled.
