Lightbulb F10 Interior and Exterior Explained by Designers

F10 Interior and Exterior Explained by Designers

COMMENTS

The F10's interior design Olive Heilmer and exterior designer Jacek Fröhlich explain their inspirations and philosophies behind their designs for the hot selling F10 5-series.

As the video explains in more details, the F10's interior drew inspiration from fine watches and the exterior goes after a strong and muscular impression, drawn from images of BMW's motorsport heritage and Munich's surrounding mountains.

The looks of this car are timeless BMW. It, and the F01, are setting the design trend for the next generation of BMW's to come.

It's honestly one of the biggest reasons I didn't get an E61. Well, that and the N54...

Garage List
I just did a full detail on this car. And when I mean full detail, I mean it took 3 days. There are a lot of angles and shapes on this car that are not obvious unless you are trying to mask it up or trying to use a polisher on it. The creases on the side , make the car look stunning, and also make it really hard to polish. Same goes with the hood. The hood is basically 5 panels.

It's very hard to design the interior of a car. It has to be comfortable, controls have must be in just right, government regulations must be followed, space is limited, it has to look good, and there is often a design message which in this case is luxury and a bit of sport.

I could really dig having an F10, especially the 550i or M5.

+1. This applies to the more recent generation of BMW's (past had some real suspect/odd layouts with controls, etc...) but it seems like BMW's interiors have taken a HUGE step in terms of quality and layout. Things are put where they should be put and for the most part, the driver can get to things with ease. I don't think you can pull the argument "well BMW's interiors are crap compared to Mercedes and Audi" because this and the 6er are simply beautiful. Mercedes and Audi interiors to me look nice because they look high tech but the 5er and 6er, looks like a well furnished house. There is no doubt that if BMW really wanted to up their interiors of their cars, they could but that's not what they're aiming for first, it's driving experience THEN luxury, but of course we all know that.

Awsome

That is two really awsome inside looks... Hands down the most gorgeous business sedan on the road.... And by the reviews, also the best by far...

But is it cold in the BMW Welt, or what's up with the scarfs?
