The BMW 3 Series GT has been recently unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show with Head of BMW Design Karim Habib right on site to explain the car's new design cues.

But this was no ordinary press conference, as Habib was interviewed in a very special manner by 2012 DTM Champion Bruno Spengler, whose questions came straight from BMW diehard fans.

Regarded as the author of a somewhat controversial design on the 3 Series Gran Turismo, Habib took his time to explain the car's different front end, new lateral air breather and other features as well.

"I think it's an evolution of it. If you look at it, you can see the kidneys and the headlamps are connected they way they are in a 3 Series. But this is a GT, it has a bit more style, a bit more presence, so the kidneys are higher, they're wider, and therefore illustrate style, presence, even more sportiness," said Habib.

Now we don't want to spoil the whole clip for you, so we're going to let you watch it below and share some thoughts about it in the comment section.
