BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo First Look


Two weeks ago at the BMW Performance Center in Spartanburg, we attended a preview of the upcoming BMW 5 Series GT. Ever since BMW has unveiled their latest gimmick, the 5 Series Gran Turismo subject has been widely debated on our website, but also by many other auto publications.
What we’ve learned in the past few years and after many new product launches was that some cars are really meant to be seen in person before any judgment can be passed on and the 5 GT certainly falls within that category. Most likely this is the reason why BMW North America has decided to take this interesting approach of introducing a new car to the journalists or even better said: giving us a sneak peak of what to expect since the model displayed in Spartanburg was not yet production ready.
To sweeten the deal even more, we had the chance to go for a ride on the race track, chauffeured around by the professional drivers at M School.

So true. I love the X6, and this 5GT is alright, but why not just get a X6? I think it looks better than the original renderings for sure, but I don't see the purpose of this model with the X6 already out. BMW needs to work on diversifying their new models a bit more. Remember when the 3,5, and 7 all had the same feel but had major styling differences?
