HAMANN-Motorsport has created an estate car version of the new BMW 5 Series. The Touring has been given an aerodynamics package, which includes a range of designs, a sports exhaust system, light-alloy wheels and interior modifications. The HAMANN makeover is offered for several versions for the 5 Series Touring.
The first features a front spoiler lip for the stock Touring. It gets the M-technology package and a front skirt that HAMANN developed with four integrated LED daytime running lights and larger air inlets.
It also features sporty side skirts and a diffuser-rear skirt with inserts for the four-tailpipe exhaust system. The downthrust is boosted with the presence of spoilers at the rear and at the roof. The 5 Series Touring is made more impressive with a set of 21-inch light-alloy wheels dubbed as the "ANODIZED" EDITION RACE DESIGN.
This complete wheel set features matt black central boss and high-gloss rim, with 255/30 ZR21 tires at the front and 295/25 ZR21 at the back with a price tag of €8 390.00. In addition, HAMANN has developed the "Anniversary Evo" design that comes in 20 or 21-inch rim sizes with a choice of silver or matt black.
The BMW 5 Series Touring is lowered by around 35 mm with the use of progressively-wound suspension springs, emphasizing the light-alloy wheels even more. HAMANN provides four tailpipes for its rear silencer for all engine models. For the 550i Touring, HAMANN offers a sports metal catalyzer with middle silencer.
The fourth generation of BMW 5-Series Touring is not only designed to deliver superior driving pleasure and sporting elegance, but it also offers both efficiency and versatility. Its dynamic styling, premium-level functionality and excellent efficiency are augmented by comfort and safety features that include several BMW-exclusive driver assistance systems. In terms of design, the body of the new BMW 5-Series Touring tells a story of active sportiness marrying modern elegance.
Evidence of this includes the Touring’s passionately stretched silhouette, its coupe-like roofline and side window surfaces that extend to the rear. All of these elements artistically redefine the touring concept into a new BMW 5-Series Touring with a stunning yet appealing well-balanced character. Its dynamic aesthetics, sophisticated surfaces and painstaking details all expose the BMW 5-Series Touring’s sporty handling, high-class ambience, varied-use interior space and modern functionality.
In addition, the BMW 5-Series Touring exudes an elegant and high-quality appearance that represents the model’s status and capability to deliver luxurious comfort in the upper midrange segment. As siblings, the new BMW 5-Series Touring and the new BMW 5-Series Sedan share some design elements. These design elements, are strictly limited on the front end while extending to the B-pillars of the vehicle’s body. Thus, just like the new BMW 5-Series Sedan, the new BMW 5-Series Touring gets an expressive and emotional front end that still features a number of elements typical of BMW, albeit reinterpreted specifically for the 5-series.
Moreover, all important design principles were carefully implemented on the new BMW 5-Series Touring, resulting to a form consistent to its body concept. Interestingly, the meticulously sculptured body of the new BMW 5-Series Touring make it seem that the vehicle is carved from one cast. Its well-balanced proportions expose the fact that the BMW 5-Series Touring features an advantageous front-to-rear weight distribution. Its long bonnet, wedge-shaped silhouette and short overhangs make the Touring model seem to be moving forward even at a standstill.
Allowing the new BMW 5-Series Touring to offer outstanding cabin space is the fact that its wheelbase measures 2,968 mm in length – the longest in its segment. At a glimpse from afar, the new BMW 5-Series Touring seemed to be even-tempered. However, at a closer inspection from another point of view, the new BMW 5-Series Touring really features a well-meaning interplay between light and shade, thereby exposing the 3D character of the vehicle’s convex and concave surfaces.
On the other hand, the new BMW 5-Series Touring is laden with intricate and premium details like chrome design elements with integrated side indicators, a roofline that extends, and door openers integrated into the side contour lines. This touring model also features the so-called "Hofmeisterknick," or counter-swing on the rear section of the integral side window surround at the base of the D-pillar.
