Promising a full unveiling on November 23rd, BMW has released a short video to tease us on the reveal of the all-new 2011 5 Series. The video doesn’t actually show any part of the car, but rather it uses a “kinetic sculpture” from the BMW Museum to form the silhouette of the vehicle.

Like all of BMW’s recent vehicles, we should expect to see a slow evolution away from the controversial Bangle designs. Also expect to see a larger grille and a more flat-fronted nose. It is likely that a new engine will debut in the vehicle as well as several familiar powerplants – like the twin-turbo 3.0-liter I6. An eight-speed automatic is also expected.

With the car’s November 23rd release date, it’s a strong possibility that BMW will use the LA Auto Show to debut its latest model.
