New F10 Spy Video on the Nurburgring

"The BMW 5-series began to reveal some of its eventual styling a couple of months ago when it shed part of its disguising revealing part of its signature grille. We can now enjoy this model beating down the Nurburgring in a new video caught by our spy photographers".

Looks like they cover the entire test car with black plastic, except for the lights, front grill, and wind shield/windows??

release date

The article on worldcarfans site says it's a sping of 2010 release as an 11 model, but these things are rarely on time. My guess is it's a late fall of 10 release.

I really hope its not that.

The front looks a lot like an older acura or lexus or something... sigh

E60 is very good looking... i hope the F10 is not very "japanese" looking as the pics suggest.

Whats wrong with the e34?? I must say a stock e34 525i is pretty bland, but I've seen some very tasteful e34's, and the e34 m5 has got to be one of the nicest looking bmw's ever made.
Just my opinion though.

Looks like...

From the rear it looks like a 4 door version of the Z4 coupe or the X6. The line and rear window slant to the trunk and rear lights.

No worries, you are wrong...
...about it being the F01.

This video was actually made about a week before it was posted up on WorldCarFans.
The new 7 had been already been 'exposed' around the 4th of July, so I doubt that BMW would have run it
around the track still disguised. Its way too short to be the F01 anyway....

Look at the length of the rear doors. I would have guessed a new 7 series. Either way, it is interesting. The slope of the rear window looks like it has been increased along the lines of the 6 series...

thanks for the post!
