Arrow BMW 5-series Gran Turismo / PAS chops and spy shots

By Motor Authority:
BMW is currently developing two new models based on its 3 and 5-series sedans, which will be taking the luxury brand into new territory. The new models are best described as MPV-wagons, but unlike the current Touring models the new cars will feature a taller ride-height and high roof to maximize interior space. Though the cars’ names are yet to be finalized, earlier reports suggested the new lineup would adopt ‘F’ badging with the two new cars being called the F3 and F5.

The F5 is expected to go head-to-head with Mercedes-Benz’ R-class but given its poor sales we have to question why BMW thinks the luxury-MPV segment is worthy of competing in. The smaller F3, meanwhile, is designed to rival Mercedes’ B-class.

This new rendering is a good indication of the final design of the larger F5 variant. Engine options will remain the same as its donor 5-series sedan but don’t expect anything bigger than a six-cylinder to feature.
The expected launch date for the F5 is in mid-2009, with the smaller F3 set to appear one year later.

Keep in mind this is a photochop by Schulte, not by BMW.

Lemans is always has an eye on the spy scene. Good work
This will be interesting to see how the F platform develops.

Do those brakes look large? This thing is looking more like a sleek X6.
