seventh generation of the sportiest business saloon, kidney grille and headlights
are directly linked for the first time ever. The low roof line sloping to the
rear lends the muscular body an elegant coupé-like silhouette and the broad
rear emphasises the high performance capacity of the BMW 5 Series. Thanks to more lightweight materials such as
aluminium and ultra-modern aluminium alloys, the new BMW 5 Series weighs
in at up to 100 kilograms less than its predecessor. The intelligent
lightweight construction also ensures a balanced weight distribution between
front and rear axle as well as a lower centre of gravity. The result is highly
