We have classified this latest piece of information as a rumor since we have not received yet official confirmation that indeed the new BMW 5 Series GT will have a base price of 55,200 euro when goes on sale in Germany later this fall.
The production model 5 Series GT will be unveiled this weekend and we expect to receive a full press release with all the details we crave for. What we learned so far is that the 5 Series GT production version will keep the frameless doors seen in the concept format and also the beautiful LED angel eyes.
The price might be surprising for some of you, but we did expect a premium price over the regular 5 Series models. In Germany, the BMW 530d Wagon sells for nearly 6,000 euro less than the 5 Gran Turismo. Despite the fact that the overall size and space of the those two models are somewhat similar, they appeal to a different crowd and fulfill different purposes.
For now, the entry level 5 Series GT will be equipped with the six-cylinder twin-turbo engine and the top model will be using the V8 twin-turbo found in the X6 and 750i.
As always, stay tuned for more information and keep an eye on the blog this coming Sunday.[Source: Focus.de -translated]
