A production-ready BMW 3 Series GT was spotted today in Midtown, NYC.

The new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo will arrive in the US, as both a 328i and a 335i, in the summer of 2013 as a 2014 model. This third body variant of the current 3 Series model family unites the sporty-dynamic genes of the Sedan with the practicality and versatility of the Touring, along with enhanced space and ride comfort.

The 3 Series Gran Turismo stands out with its interior designed to provide luxury and comfort, for both the driver and his passengers.
