BMW 5 E12 – 宝马5系E12



The E12 5-series was produced from 1972-1981 (produced until 1984 in South Africa). The E12 is the first series to bear the 5-Series name: the ‘5’ denoting BMW’s fifth ‘New Class’ platform. Designed as a replacement for the BMW New Class mid-size sedan, the E12 5-Series models were smaller than the large BMW E3 sedan but larger than the two-door 2002 models.

The BMW 5-Series


The first generation’s body was styled by Paul Bracq and Pietro Frua, based on the Bertone 1970 BMW Garmisch 2002ti Geneva show car.[citation needed] The E12 was available only in the sedan body style with a manual transmission. There was an automatic transmission available for US and Japan-only versions.


While there was no E12 M5 produced, the E12 M535i is seen as the predecessor to the M5.

 Der BMW 5er ist eine Modellreihe der oberen Mittelklasse der Firma BMW. Sie wird seit 1972 angeboten, seit 1991 auch als Kombi-Variante (Firmenbezeichnung Touring).

Die Bezeichnung des BMW 5er stand für eine Neuordnung innerhalb des BMW-Programms, und der 5er war das erste Modell innerhalb dieser Modell-Klassifizierung, die auf den damaligen BMW-Marketing-Vorstand Bob A. Lutz zurückgeht. Später wurde diese Art der Modellbezeichnung (3er, 5er, 7er) auf das ganze Portfolio übertragen. Mercedes und Audi folgten später mit vergleichbaren Fahrzeugbezeichnungen einer ähnlichen Ordnungslogik (E-Klasse, Audi A6). Mitbewerber am Markt in der Fahrzeugklasse des BMW 5er sind beispielsweise die Modellversionen der Mercedes-Benz E-Klasse, des Audi A6, des Lexus GS, des Volvo S80 und des Jaguar XF.

Seit September 2009 ist auch eine Fließheckvariante mit der Bezeichnung GranTurismo erhältlich, die mit Teilen des 7er von BMW schon zur Oberklasse gerechnet wird.

La Serie 5 è un’autovettura di fascia alta prodotta dalla Casa automobilistica tedesca BMW in varie “edizioni”, a partire dal 1972. Nel marzo del 2010 ha debuttato la sesta generazione, con carrozzeria berlina e più avanti anche Touring (station wagon).

El BMW Serie 5 es un automóvil del segmento E producido por el fabricante alemán BMW. Los primeros modelos Serie 5 fueron lanzados en 1972, y actualmente se encuentra en la sexta generación. La Serie 5 está a la venta en carrocerías sedán y familiar.

The 56, 57, 58 Cadillac Eldorado



1958 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham

1957 saw the Eldorado (in both Biarritz convertible and Seville hardtop bodystyles) with a revised rear-end design featuring a low, downswept fenderline capped by a pointed, in-board fin. The rear fenders were commonly referred to as “chipmunk cheeks”. This concept was used for two years, but did not spawn any imitators.

Series 62 Eldorados (as distinct from the Series 70 Eldorado Brougham ) were further distinguished by the model name above a V-shaped rear deck ornament and on the front fenders. The rear fender and deck contour was trimmed with broad, sculptured stainless steel beauty panels.

Also seen were “shark” style fins pointing towards the back of the cars. A three section built in front bumper was another exclusive trait of the Series 62 Eldorados, which came with a long list of standard features. A new bodystyle was added to the subseries, a 4-door Eldorado Sedan Seville, but only four were actually sold, and it was cancelled the following year.

Cadillac Eldorado 1953

In 1954, Eldorado lost its unique sheet metal, sharing its basic body shell with standard Cadillacs. Distinguished now mainly by trim pieces, this allowed GM to lower the price and see a substantial increase in sales. The Eldorados had golden identifying crests centered directly behind the air-slot fenderbreaks and wide fluted beauty panels to decorate the lower rear bodysides. These panels were made of extruded aluminum and also appeared on a unique one of a kind Eldorado coupe built for the Reynolds Aluminum Corporation. Also included in the production Eldorado convertible were monogram plates on the doors, wire wheels, and custom interior trimmings with the Cadillac crest embossed on the seat bolsters. 2150 Eldorados were sold, nearly four times as many as in 1953.1950-1959-cadillac-3

For 1955, the Eldorado’s body gained its own rear end styling with high, slender, pointed tailfins. These contrasted with the rather thick, bulbous fins which were common at the time and were an example of Eldorado once again pointing the way forward. The Eldorado sport convertible featured extras such as wide chrome body belt moldings and twin round taillights halfway up the fenders. Sales nearly doubled to 3,950.Cadillac-1955-Eldorado-black sexz skirt legs

For 1956, a two-door hardtop coupe version appeared, called the Eldorado Seville at which point the convertible was named the Eldorado Biarritz. An Eldorado script finally appeared with fender crest on the car which was further distinguished by a twin hood ornament. Extras featured on the Eldorado convertible were a ribbed chrome saddle molding extending from the windshield to the rear window pillar along the beltline. With the addition of the Seville, sales rose yet again to 6,050 of which 2,150 were Sevilles. Eldorados accounted for nearly 4% of all Cadillacs sold.
