In the parking lot, near the Nurburgring race track, the prototype of the updated BMW M5 was captured, as well as the current version of the “charged” car, so that their exteriors can be compared. The prototype of the updated version of the business sedan is still covered with camouflage film, which somewhat complicates the objective comparison.
Despite the fact that the prototype of the updated high-performance BMW M5 sedan was covered with some camouflage, we can still discern some elements of its appearance. In particular, you can see the restyled headlights, which have become thinner, as well as the vertical trims of the double false radiator grille, which now look somewhat different.
The tight camouflage on the front bumper suggests that it is this part of the updated BMW M5 that will be changed, in fact, like the lower grille. Most likely, the air intakes got a slightly different shape, but they are difficult to see because of the dense camouflage on the front of the sedan.
Several other prototypes found on the same track also had a rear camouflaged - most likely there are hidden recycled taillights with new graphics. Currently, the rear bumper has not received any changes, although it may well be that on the production version of the new BMW M5 it will look a little different.
It is reported that the new M5 will have a more powerful version of CS, which will be the most powerful version of the model. I note that a prototype of such a model was seen last month without any camouflage - the CS nameplate, gold wheels and a more powerful spoiler on the trunk lid were visible. Most likely, this version of the new product will receive more than 617 horsepower and lower weight.
It is currently unknown whether CS will debut at the same time as the updated M5 or not. Meanwhile, the updated Series 5 is due to appear in 2020, and is likely to be followed soon by the M5.
The new BMW 5 Series 2021 was spotted at the Nurburgring
Two concepts of the German brand in various bodies appeared on the cult Nurburgring track.
The updated BMW 5 Series already fell into the lenses of photo spies, but now the conceptual models have been brought to the Nurburgring. So, the company is testing a sedan and station wagon, whose bodies are partly covered with camouflage film.
The first is the navy 5 Series Touring station wagon. This concept has already been noticed this month. But if you take a close look, you can emphasize that this is a different machine.
The novelty will acquire modified headlights that have a new pattern and a more pronounced LED daylight line. In addition, it is worth emphasizing that the updated station wagon will not be equipped with an enlarged radiator grill, however, everything can change.
The track also passes tests of a dark blue concept sedan on large wheels, hiding large brake calipers. However, this is not a full-scale M5 model, but, certainly, a powerful model that has a diesel engine with the M Performance package.
As for the engine range, the updated BMW 5 Series is likely to acquire a new hybrid option. Allegedly the name 545e xDrive, it will share with its plug-in powerplant a 745e xDrive iPerformance, which means that under the hood there will be a 3.0-liter turbo-six with an electric motor. Total output 375 hp
Soon, the German brand is unlikely to introduce its own new products. According to assumptions, the debut of the sedan and station wagon will take place in the second half of next year, as the model of 2021.
