BMW Concept 5 Series Gran Turismo

BMW 5 Concept Series Gran Turismo was first displayed by BMW in 2009 at the Geneva Motor Show as a concept car.[1] It is the first production-destined rendition for BMW's Progressive Activity Sedan (PAS) series of cars and based on the F07 automobile platform. The 5 GT is to serve as a combination of a sport sedan, an SUV, and a Gran Turismo.
It has dimensions mimicking in length the 7 Series, a height and trunk space slightly more than the 5 Series wagon, and headroom comparable to the BMW X5. The concept was equipped with individual rear seats separated by the center console, whereas the production model will have 5 seats.
The production version is expected to launch as a 2010 model, with an expected price between $65,000 and $80,000, during the fourth quarter of 2009. The 535i and 535i xDrive with the 3L twin-turbocharged direct injected double-VANOS inline six produce 300 HP. If production is approved for it, there may also be a 535d with the 335d's 3L twin-turbocharged double-VANOS diesel inline six engine with 265 horsepower. Also, the range topping model, the 550i GT boasts the 400HP 4.4L twin-turbocharged (twin scroll turbochargers) V8 with direct fuel injection.
