by 11 January 2010

The BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo blends the essential features of a prestige saloon, a modern and versatile Sports Activity Vehicle and a classic Gran Turismo in a new and innovative driving philosophy. As the name indicates, the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo is ideally suited for a truly wonderful travel experience, but is also a top performer for everyday journeys where maximum comfort is a must. The luxurious ambience immediately makes the driver and passengers feel at home, legroom at the rear is the same as in the BMW 7 Series, headroom is equal to that of the BMW X5. The tilt angle of the rear-seat backrests adjusts individually to the respective personal requirements of the passengers.

The slightly elevated seating position, the clear structured layout of the controls, BMW’s new iDrive with its Control Display of up to 10.2 inches in size and Black Panel cockpit technology all help to give the driver maximum supremacy at all times. A unique motoring experience ensured also by the powerful and efficient engines, the Dynamic Drive Control as a standard feature and the car’s advanced technology and innovative driver assistance systems. As a world-first achievement, the BMW 535i Gran Turismo comes with the first straight-six gasoline engine featuring TwinPower Turbo, High Precision Injection and VALVETRONIC and developing maximum output of 225 kW/306 hp. The top engine in the range is the V8 TwinPower Turbo delivering maximum output of 300 kW/407 hp. All engines naturally fulfil the EU5 emission standard.

Through its wide range of qualities, the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo meets all the demands of a modern target group looking for a vehicle providing perfect harmony in meeting all kinds of requirements and demands in life – both as a prestigious and elegant company car and as an active leisure-time vehicle.
