2010 BMW 5 Series – click above to watch the video

We knew that BMW's pivotal 5 Series was slated for replacement soon, and we've seen plenty of spy shots to prove that it's in the cards. Up until just now, however, we didn't know when it would appear.

In a brief press release available after the jump, BMW promises that its new 5 Series will be revealed with a "Live-Stream of the unveiling ceremony" on November 23 at 8pm CET. In the meantime, the automaker has released a teaser video of an amazing kinetic sculpture at the BMW Museum that gives away the car's outline. You can check it out after the jump.

      "Be American. Buy American."

      Thanks for the advise. I think I might just go out and buy an American made BMW X6.

      I could have sworn that BMW did this before. I think it was with the newest 3 series, but I'll have to do some Googling to find it.

      Oh how exciting! I can see that there is a basic shape of a hood, trunk, and passenger compartment!
        • 5 Years Ago
        it is a bit exciting because it looks as thought BMW is returning to more of the pre bangled looks and integrating the headlights into that side crease almost a5 like. it could, quite possibly, be an attractive and a little more modern evolution of the current design... though the current 5 series didn't need fixing the way that horrid 7 series did.

        ...but no wheels, so maybe, finally we're getting flying cars! YAY!
      • 5 Years Ago
      Alright guys, lets all hope its just the E39 again with better nav and we're good to go.
        • 5 Years Ago
        And cupholders.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Hahaha so true, not those little crab claws that pop out over a tray.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I think this will be the best looking 5 since the E39 series.
      • 5 Years Ago
      No offense, kind GM sir, but why would anybody want to buy an America car?

      I know, GM, Ford, and (maybe) Chrysler are trying hard, but it's not enough. Foreign cars are still more appealing, in the lower segment and the higher segment.

      Wow... this makes me want a new 5 series.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Gawd I love this company. Such imagination. They should patent imagineeringtechmologyism.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I am already LOVING how far back the c-pillar hits the decklid compared to the E60/E61 models!! That's actually what I've always found attractive about the Lexus GS for all three of it's generations.

      There is a cross marketing opportunity here with subway's 5 dollar foot longs
      • 5 Years Ago
      props to BMW, very cool ad!
      • 5 Years Ago
      You say it with such authority that I almost believe you, except...

      Can you please show me an American car (currently on the market) that would be realistically cross shopped with a 335ci with similar dimensions, weight, fit and finish, and performance.

      I'm positive that you cannot answer this question to my liking, as I have already checked and the answer is: There are no American cars on the market that fit this description.

      How can I buy American and get what I want?
