This looks like new 5

They say it's CS, but just look at the side shot - it is 5.

Please correct me if I'm wrong but I'm fairly certain this pic is the new 7 series. I am very interested in the design of the next 5-series, though internet searches have only brought up the usual "theoretical" drawings/renderings and spy shots.

Maybe. But why camo a car which was shown to the public 6 months ago? Also, lights seem to be different - there is yellow blinker visible there which is not present on new 7.

The entire rear portion of the car (going back from the windshield & front doors) is definitely the F01.
A lot of people on other forums are under the impression that BMW is simply testing the front end of a 'new ' vehicle on the F01 chassis.

What that car is/will be is anyone's guess....it may not become anything.
Perhaps a revival of the 8 Series? I really don't think this is the F10.

I don't think it's the F-10 either. Look at the front. Granted, it's a side view, but it appears that the kidneys are very large, a la the new 7's.

Has anyone seen this?

By the way, I think the new F10 550i will be as fast as the e60 M5.
