The first official press images showing BMW's production ready 5-series Gran Turismo have surfaced giving us our best look yet at the exterior and interior styling.

This model seen here is apparently the GT 530d variant. And with BMW's 3.0 liter diesel engine coming with a husky but supple 245 hp (and 520 Nm of torque), that seems just right for a Gran Turismo of this size, doesn't it?

Features unique to this 5-series GT is the hatch/trunk, where the rear trunk space can be accessed by either popping the entire hatch, or just a small trap door.

One the inside the cabin design is looking more conventional, production-ready, than in the concept seen before. But the interior styling still seems very distinct and particular to the Gran Turismo ideal.

Seeing the car on the road like that, recalls the X6 SUV/Coupe. With this 5-series GT being somewhat of a less bulky, less SUV-ish, little brother to it.

No news yet on the big-ticket technology items such as whether the 5-series GT will come with the new 8-speed automatic gearbox first seen on the 760i or the rear-wheel steering introduced in the latest 7-series.

Speculation is that a GT 530d of this kind will be selling for about 60,000 euros.

Why make a car that's supposed to be more practical with more trunk space, and then put only 4 seats in it?

I'm not a fan of this car, but I like the interior

Man, the more I look at some of these new cars that are coming out, the more I appreciate the designs of the 80's and 90's cars. Ughhh

I don't see the point of opening the trunk only partially...
