BMW 5 Series GT – Radical !


oooooooookkkkkkk i didn’t know that the Germans are coming up with something this radical, its like a 5 Series + X6 + 7 Series all in one – The 5 Series Gran Turismo !

So all in all you will get a very luxury saloon and some versatility of an SUV !


Seriously this is really bringing the 5 series to another kind of segment, i mean, just look at the windows, they are with no frame, so sporty !

There are 3 engine variants for the GT :

530d – This variant comes with a 3.0L turbo-diesel engine giving out 245hp and 540 Nm of torque.

Next is,

535i – will be having a 3.0L 6 cylinder Twin Power turbo capable of producing 306hp and 400Nm of torque.

Lastly is the,

550i – 4.4L twin turbo V8 that churns out 407hp with 600 Nm of torque !!!

All these engines will be mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission gearbox, goodness i never heard of 8-speed before :p


The GT will also come with the i-Drive tech on a 10.2” display, ConnectDrive, Lane Departure Warning (Is this means that when you shift lanes a warning will come out ?) and more gadgets…


Another interesting part about this baby is that the rear seats can be adjusted, so that when you want to have 7 series legroom, you just push it back, but when you want more boot space, you just push it to the front ! Pretty neat huh :p

5-gt-5 5-gt-6

Another interesting part is that the boot, you can open it in 2 ways ! First is the whole boot comes up, then the other way is to just open partially !

To sum it up, this is one marvelous masterpiece from BMW, combining all the elements that appeal to a wide range of customers !

  1. As I said before …. FUGLY…

    The GT stands between the 5 series and X6 series (which looks just a bit better then the GT) and it looks like its lost within BMW marquee or is it just just something to match audi’s Q5 which is lost within its family as well.
    To summarize, I don’t care how the boot folds, its rear end is just ugly for a lot of money

  2. I have seen a X6 on the road…it looks much much better than photo….I would assume tht X5 will look stunning too

  3. […] the radical change for BMW 550i Grand Turismo is out to be reviewed. Some may just like this and others will hate this change. I like the trunk […]
