Yes, this is a new generation BMW 5 series Touring. Completely new. We didn’t expect to see this so soon. We don’t even know the codename yet. Ok, BMW just released the 5 series LCI, and we know the cars from BMW undergo a full, long and thorough test programme. Where the new gen 7 series (G11) is already on the trail, this is just facing the start of it and won’t see a production version before 2016.
Even though it is packed with camouflage it does show some new design cues. Likely to be sharing some elements with the recent BMW releases and the upcoming BMW 7 series. It will go on a diet with CFRP tech, like the new gen 7series, making it much lighter then the current models.
