BMW Teases upcoming 5 Series LCI, reveal scheduled later this month

Even though we have already seen the leaks of the upcoming facelift the 5 Series range, the BMW marketing bees are still going to go ahead with their launch campaign. After all, they have put too much work in to let it all go down the drain because someone can’t keep a secret. Therefore, BMW published a teaser of its upcoming model online earlier today, showcasing the new LED signature light pattern.

It’s a small step towards seeing the entire new car, and according to our sources that’s going to happen before the end of the month.

By then, the BMW people will surely start praying that no more leaks happen, to keep some sort of element of surprise for fans of the brand. Don’t expect huge changes for the LCI 5 Series, as they are not needed. The car is selling well enough already so BMW won’t be fiddling with the recipe too much.

On the styling front we’ll get new headlights and a slightly reshaped front end as well as new taillights. Inside the cabin we’ll find the new iDrive 7 systems as well as the Professional Live Cockpit for the driver and the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant.

New paint colors for the exterior and new materials/colors combos will also be used inside. As for the technical side of things, the 5 Series range was updated constantly since the current model was rolled out so don’t expect huge changes.

BMW 5 Series Range to Get New V8 and Hybrid Model This Summer

The refreshed 2021 BMW 5 Series will get all the mild-hybrid choices that were already unveiled, for the 2-liter diesel engine most importantly, as that’s the European workhorse at the moment. Even the M5 LCI will get updated with the new styling elements we’ve seen already in leaked photos.

We’ll also get an M5 CS model, but that’s going to be released towards the end of the year.

Spengler and Eng score another podium in IMSA iRacing Pro Series

BMW drivers are still competing in sim-racing events all over and the latest notable result comes from Bruno Spengler and Philipp Eng. The two BMW Works drivers managed to get podium finishes behind the wheel of the virtual BMW M8 GTE. Spengler finished second in the IMSA iRacing Pro Series after he came in sixth the last time out, at Mid-Ohio.

This time, on the virtual circuit of Road America, the Canadian had a better tyre strategy and managed to position himself better at the end of the race.

While initially you might think sim-racing doesn’t require as much strategy as the real deal, you might be surprised at how intricate these races are. One bad choice and your race could be over.

For example, Spengler was one of only two drivers who chose to use the pit stops to change just two tires instead of four, a decision which enabled him to make up a few places. Spengler took good care of his tires during the final phase and claimed a podium position.

“We knew in advance that competing against such strong opposition would be tougher on this circuit than in previous races. The qualifying results in particular confirmed that. However, choosing a pit stop strategy of just changing the left-hand tires with the heavier wear allowed us to make decisive progress. The older tires did not have a detrimental effect on the pace towards the end and I was able to keep hold of second place All in all, it was a great day and a super result for me and the entire team,” said Bruno after the race.

Porsche claimed the number one spot in the end, bringing the BMW winning spree to a hold . Philipp Eng finished third, just behind Spengler. An impressive six BMW M8 GTE drivers finished in the top ten. John Edwards finished fifth while Turner Motorsport drivers Robby Foley, Connor De Phillippi and Nick Catsburg crossed the finish line in seventh, eighth and ninth places.
