Wink BMW Files For Three New Trademarks!

Helloz there! I read this and found it intersting....so here it is as I read it from WorldCarFans.com:

German car maker BMW have filed for three new trademarks, hinting at potential future production model or design study designations, reports car enthusiast website leftlanenews.com. Trademarks of 'BMW M10', 'BMW 555' and 'Progressive Activity Sedan' have all been registered. Upon first glance, you'd be forgiven for thinking that BMW have a high-performance "M" version of an oversized luxury sedan, a 5.5-litre 5-series and an until-now unsurfaced mould-breaking crossover vehicle in the pipeline - but all may not be as it seems.
BMW M10
Rumours of a spiritual successor to the BMW M1 of the late 70s flourished last year following the "leak" of information by an Italian tuning firm on a forthcoming V10-powered supercar from the German maker. And it would seem that substance has now been given to the tuner's claims. It had been maintained that they were to produce a 214 mph supercar based on BMW's forthcoming M10, seeing showroom floors by the end of 2009.
BMW 555
According to leftlanenews.com, the '555' trademark was 'published for opposition' back in August, which tends to indicate a strong indication as to the use of a trademark. In regard to its use, there are two likely options. The newly-registered trademark may very well refer to a forthcoming 5-series featuring a 5.5-litre output, although it may also signal a turbocharged version of the 5-series' existing 5.0-litre engine. The designation would therefore follow suit with BMW's 335, which is powered by a turbocharged 3.0-litre unit.
Progressive Activity Sedan
The more ambiguous registration is this, the 'Progressive Activity Sedan'. BMW presently refer to their upcoming X6 SUV as a 'Sports Activity Coupe', so unless the name got the boot after its Frankfurt premiere, that designation is likely to stay - if only for marketing purposes. It could however signal the naming strategy for the forthcoming 5-series based V-Series, captured by our spies only last week. Or, dare we say it, BMW have yet another new mould-breaker up their sleeves?

M10 is rebranded version of what was supposed to be Z10.
Progressive Activity sedan is supposed to be F-series.

I would say rest is all covering all bases for future.

yeah..I think M10 is better ...cause the letter M + BMW =

how about the 555? could it be the 5.5 5 series? I don't know why I think it's not!

If the M10 is going to look like this (see picture below) and if it will have a turbo version of the M6 engine ... I'll be signing up for one.

I can already picture it: Alpine white with a red interior and CF trim and of course, some nice ACS wheels.

LeMans, when can we expect the M10 to be available?

That would be perfect timing. My M6 will be up for replacement by 2009-2010.
