It's the seventh generation BMW 5 Series
Deep breath. In 1972 the angular-looking E10 5 Series succeeded the ‘Neue Klasse’ BMW 2000. The 1981 E28 modernised the idea, and in 1985 gave us the first M5. The 1987 E34 was more rounded and saw a Touring for the first time, and a V8, though the M5 was a six. Then in 1995 came the brilliant E39, with aluminium suspension, and an awesome naturally-aspirated V8 in the M5. The Bangle-era E60 brought a part-aluminium body, active steering and iDrive in 2003, and a brilliant, raucous V10 M5. The 2010 F10/F11 was launched first as a third bodystyle, the unlovely F07 five-door Gran Turismo.
