Next BMW 3 Series and M5 Spotted In Sweden

There’s still plenty of snow in Northern Sweden with temperatures as low as minus 25. Perfect conditions to test future cars in extreme conditions. Here we have the latest photos of the next-generation BMW 3 Series and high-performance M5.

The next 3 Series is still heavily camouflaged, so it is quite hard to tell what’s really under all that wrapping. The new 3 Series is expected to ride on a lengthened wheelbase, offering more interior room. Powertrain lineup will include a wide range of petrol and diesel units. World debut is most likely at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

The new BMW M5 on the other hand features a very light disguise to hide the M specific details. We can see the more aggressive bumper with larger air intakes, wider fenders, twin-exhaust tips, and small boot lid spoiler.

Under the bonnet is a new4.4 litre twin-turbo V8 with around 560-580bhp, based on the same unit found in the BMW X5 M and X6 M. The M5 as a concept is rumored to debut at the Auto Shanghai show in April.
