A leaner Beamer

BMW 5-Series

Here is my vision of what I would like from the next 5-Series. Gone are the bloated proportions of the modern BMW - replaced by more the more classic BMW proportions of the 80s and 90s: a long, low bonnet and a short, high tail. A single gently-rising crease connects the two ends of the car - a sharp contrast with the overly-fussy lines of recent BMWs.

The front end of the car is heavily influenced by that of the BMW i8. The shark-like appearance harks back to golden-era Beamers, while bringing it up to date with contemporary LED headlamps and BMWs current kidney grill design. The sharp edge of the headlight is reflected in the leading edge of the side vents, giving a sense of continuity from the front of the car to the back.
