Info from Scott:

"What you are looking at here is early beginnings of the next 5er.

With each generation of the 3er growing in overall dimension, BMW are looking to integrate the 5er much differently in the future.

"The executive car with a difference" is how management want to see the next generation of the 5er. The front lights are more angular and aggressive and the rear follows the form of the current 5er but will be much smaller.

Questioning the sanity of the CLS-Klasse - what has it done to the sales of the high end E-Klasse models, and with the new C-Klasse - what will happen to the entry and mid E-Klasse?

BMW see this dilema as offering the one car only and really seperate the 5er from the competition. 5er will still be a sedan with conventional four doors and b pillars but the design will be like a coupe. The idea is to build a executive sedan and clothe it in an exciting body to seperate it from it's rivals.

Not to disillusion the haters - the designer of this idea: none other than Mr Bangle himself."
