Cool Could this be the look of the new M5? (pics)

Well, this is for me, a totally new 5-series design. I don´t now if this has anything to do with the real BMW, but it does´nt look bad.

Here have a look:

certainly not as bad as the E60. At least the "eyebrows" don't stand out as much in this image as they do on the E60. It still looks like it's got a really big rear end which could take some time for me to get used to, though it doesn't look too bad in this picture. I know it's a CG image, but I kinda like this!

btw, is that a CS1 coupe on the bottom? Now there's an ugly car

I think that this iteration is probably one of the best ones that I've seen yet. I'm almost inclined to go out and leave a deposit for the next M5 right NOW!
