BMW 5 Series GT Official Photos, Videos and Details

As we reported earlier today, BMW showcased the new BMW 5 series GT at an event in Munich last night. They also promised to release official photos of their newest conception, along with details about its characteristics. And so they did. Although the official photos to not depict an actual living breathing car, we are sure these CGI's will give you a detailed idea of how the real car looks.

We said earlier the new 5er borrows features from three BMW models, including the 7 series. The GT got the exact same wheel base as this bigger model, as it stands 3,070 mm long. The front to back length is 7 cm shorter than the 7 series. measuring 4,998 mm and the height of the car measures 1,555 mm.

The new BMW has a coupe-like roof-line, that practically creates a new car segment, the Progressive Activity Sedan, an odd mixture between a SUV, a sedan and a classic GT. The front design features the usual BMW kidney, decorated with large air intake points. The double rounded headlights are trimmed with LED coronas. Taking its inspiration from a sports coupe, the glass on the four doors have no frames.

On the interior, the cockpit is designed in a horizontal, cascade like manner while the entire dashboard is one big panel that incorporates a 10.2 inch display. Rear individual seats are separated by a center console, allowing for large variations in the luggage carrying capability of the GT. The most space you can gain from a seat configuration is 1,650 liters.

To give you a taste of what actually really matters, we will tell you the car is powered by 6 cylinder engines, controlled by an 8 speed automatic gearbox and for the moment will only have a rear-wheel drive platform. Later versions will incorporate all-wheel-drive and will be powered by BMW's V8s.
