BMW has been spotted testing the upcoming BMW 5 Series GT M Sport out on public streets. Like all M Sport packages, the car has been dressed up with relatively modest yet sporty details inside and out.
The BMW 5 Series GT isn’t exactly an attractive, head-turning design to start with; you could say it looks a little bit like a hippopotamus trying to stand up – 0f course, we could be wrong. With this M Sport pack though, things are certainly smartened up. It just looks a bit more clean-cut and athletic.
As with normal M packages, the 5 GT M Sport will showcase a neat bodykit including revised front and rear bumper bars with aggressively styled vents and extensions in the front, as well as a lower front chin with the recent design trend of a deep central mouth and scoop at the bottom.
Other changes include sporty and much larger alloy wheels (whether or not these test car wheels represent the production wheels is not yet known), ‘M’ polished aluminium sill plates inside all doors and an ‘M’ leather-wrapped sports steering and gear level cover.
The car will also feature the usual smattering of ‘M’ badges throughout the vehicle. International speculation points at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show in September as the vehicle’s official unveiling. We’ll keep you updated in regards to the Australian debut and pricing as soon as we can.
Tell us though, has the kit improved the looks of the big 5er GT? Perhaps you already liked it? Feel free to vent your emotions in the comments section below.
