TTAC Photochop: BMW 5-Series
This is not the first rendering of the future 5er to appear on the net, But I didn’t like any of the images I’ve seen so far. I also dislike the E60. I guess all BMW fans older than five crave for a design with the beautiful simplicity and the character of the E24 6 Series… I don’t remember spending so much time on a rendering in quite a while. As a BMW fan, I felt obliged to take my time with this one and tweak it until it felt right. I tried to blend the things that first come into my mind when I think BMW, with the flame-surfacing-stuff they’re doing these days. Note the side line, tribute to the BMW 2002, and the “kidneys” that move into the future with more attitude and guts. The front lights were the tricky part. Some think that the E60 overhanging lights will or should make it onto the next 5-Series. I tried about four or five sets of those, but none of them looked right. So I felt obliged to use a conservative approach with just a little of the flame-surfacing-overhanging-stuffing. Enjoy!
