BMW will continue with more cutting edge technology and enhanced electronic driving aids such as improved iDrive, new torque splitting all-wheel-drive, Flex-Ray high-speed vehicle network architecture and a light-hybrid engine system.

AutoMotorSport Sweden has the inside scoop on the next generation BMW 5 Series. Set to be revealed in 2010 the all new sedan gets a completely new platform and most importantly a new exterior design. Overall, the design is a major departure from the current yet ever controversial E60 5 Series, however, it retains the same characteristic design play of concave and convex shapes BMW calls "flame surfacing". Based on information from various AMS sources, these computer renderings created by AMS illustrator Radovan Varicak, show some design cues adopted from the current 3-Series such as the rear lamps and v-shaped hood lines extending down into the front grille bumper fascia as well as a coupe-like roof-line which extends down into the quarter panels and luggage lid. As a result the infamous "bangle butt" is gone. With this more appealing design, AMS believes BMW will regain the confidence of the customers lost from the E60. In addition, BMW will continue with more cutting edge technology and enhanced electronic driving aids such as improved iDrive, new torque splitting all-wheel-drive (aka Dynamic Performance Control), Flex-Ray high-speed vehicle network architecture and a light-hybrid engine system. The new M5 will keep its V10 but with increased horsepower and an 8-speed dual-clutch gear box (i.e. DSG).
