Continuing down the path of doing something different and cool at auto shows, BMW brings Bruno Spengler, 2012 DTM champion, and Karim Habib, Head of Exterior Design, to introduce the new 3 Series GT at the 2013 Geneva Auto Show.

The midsize Gran Turismo will debut next month at the 2013 Geneva Auto Show and according to BMW, this third body variant of the current 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.

Page Biermann, exterior designer of the 3 Series GT, says that his design inspiration was drawn from the Lamborghini Espada, the grand tourer built by the Italian automaker between 1968 and 1978.
