BMW 5 Series GT at the International Auto Show Florida
BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo will be exhibited in North America at the South Florida International Auto Show October 23-November 1. This whole new model from BMW AG combines the style of elegant sedan and the functionality of Sports Activity Vehicle. The category of the vehicle is Progressive Activity Sedan. The model range of 5 Series GT include three engines, two petrol and a diesel.
The most powerful is twin-trbo 4.4 litre V8 petrol engine with 8-speed automatic gearbox. This engine provides extraordinary driving pleasure and exceptional performance. The maximum output is 407hp and 600Nm of toque. 550i accelerates from 0 to 100kph in 5.5 seconds. The top speed is 250kph (electronically limited).
The less powerful engine is the well-known 3.0 litre twin-turbo in-line six cylinder delivering 306hp and 400Nm toque in the range between 1200-5000rpm. GT 535i covers 100kph from stand still in 6.3 seconds. The top speed is 250kph (electronically limited), again.
The diesel engine is 3.0 litre common rail from the newest generation. The maximum power is 245hp and 540Nm of torque. 0-100km/h in 6.9 seconds and top speed of 240kph. The fuel consumption of the diesel is just amazing, it is only 6.5l/100km combined cycle.
5 Series GT combines everything that you need - sportiness, elegance, luxury and versatility.
The exterior is typical for the BMW AG's cars. Nice elegant curves, aggressive front and stylish rear end of the car. Probably the most beautiful and interesting thing in the car are the four doors, which have frameless windows, which makes the car look more like coupe than a sedan.
Inside the car is as luxurious as the 7 series, so the standard equipment is at very high level.
The new BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo will arrive in BMW Centers this December. The price list will be announced closer to the on-sale date.
