Although the new generation BMW 5-Series came first as a crossover, as the GT model, we're actually waiting for the mainstream sedan version. Well, believe it or not, a fully-covered 2010 BMW 5-Series sedan test mule was pulled over by German police on the Autobahn and the incident was briefly filmed by a camera woman from 'TVnews Hessen' that happened to be at the right place, at the right time. This 5-Series which was caught was a 535d diesel model. Nevertheless, through out the video, TVnews Hessen also got a closer look at the interior. Although everything is pretty much covered-up, but the new 5-Series sedan should look similarly close the 5-Series GT inside and out. Expect the all-new 2010 BMW 5-Series sedan to be released soon with lots of engine variants, including the twin-turbocharged 3.0L in-line six-cylinder, and the twin-turbo 4.4L V8.Speaking of engine, BMW's M division hasn't ever spread its high-performance modifications to the big BMW 7-Series luxury limousine. Well, with Mercedes' S63 AMG looming around without a rival, and the new 7-Series actually has a sporty character, the M division might actually come through the 7-Series. The source of the spy shot above actually claim that this is a high-performance M7 prototype luxury super-sedan. The spy shot clearly shows that the front spoiler has been reworked to provide better cooling to a more powerful engine and braking system. There is also a tiny bulge in the hood that hints at a larger engine. Rumors that the engine is probably the reworked twin-turbocharged 4.4L V8, which is available in the X5 M and X6 M, that develops 555 hp.
