In 2017, BMW plans to introduce their second generation 5 Series Gran Turismo. The first iteration was unveiled back in 2009 at the Geneva Motor Show and is selling with a price ranging from $57,500 to $99,170 in United States.

BMW stopped exporting the 5 Series wagon to the United States after 2010 due to its unpopularity there, so the 5 GT is considered a replacement.

The design idea behind the somewhat controversial 5 GT was a combination of a sport sedan, an SUV, and a Gran Turismo, all in a premium package with an interior resembling the luxury of a 7 Series but with better handling and driving dynamics.

While everyone praised the driving experience, many have been vocal against the design language, one that didn’t flatter BMW’s design house. The front-end of the car followed the steps of the 5 Series Sedan with beautiful and modern lines, while the rear-end has drawn the most criticism due to its awkwardly design “bi-modal” trunk.

But with the second generation in works, BMW designers aim to give the Gran Turismo a more appealing look, as we have seen on the recently launched 3 Series Gran Turismo.

The latest edition of Autobild has a rendering of the next generation BMW 5er Gran Turismo along with some technical details. The car is said to be built on the next-generation BMW 5 Series with extended wheelbase which will allow the car to have a sleeker rear-end than the current model.

On the tech front, the 2017 5 Series Gran Turismo will be the first BMW with the fuel cell technology.
