Much in the same way as humans and animals, automobiles are also tied to the vicious cycle of life and death.
At the same time that the first examples of the facelifted BMW 5-Series F10 sedan, F11 Touring and F07 Gran Turismo models are arriving in dealerships across the world, the engineering minds in Munich have started field tests of the car that will gradually replace them starting from late 2016 or early 2017.
Our spy photographers nabbed one of the very first camouflaged prototypes of the next generation 5-Series in Touring (station wagon) shape as it was being transferred on a delivery truck.
It’s too early and there are too many dummy panels on the test car to know definite details, but the new 5er is expected to benefit from a weight reduction and new tech features, all while evolving the design of the current model. By the time the next 5-Series arrives, further advancements in the field of hybrid powerplants and electric motors will allow BMW to expand its range as well.
