The BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo (also referred to as "5 Series GT") models are the 5-door fastback versions of the F10 5 Series model range and use the model code F07. The F07 uses the F10 platform and shares many components with the other 5 Series models. It was released in 2009.

Engine choices were turbocharged straight-6 petrol, straight-6 diesel and V8 petrol. At launch, all models were rear-wheel drive ("sDrive"), with all-wheel drive ("xDrive") models being added in 2010.

For the following G30 generation, the Gran Turismo models were moved to the 6 Series model range and renamed the G32 6 Series Gran Turismo.[4]

Development and launch[edit]

On 30 January 2009, BMW released a video called "BMW Concept: Scribble Video", which outlined the thought process behind the design of the upcoming 5 Series GT.[5][6]

The 5 Series GT was introduced as the BMW Concept 5 Series Gran Turismo at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show.[7][8][9] The rear seats on the concept version are two folding bucket seats separated by a center console,[10][11] whereas the production model has three rear seats (although an option called "executive class seating" reverts to two rear seats). The concept version has 21-inch wheels and a paint colour called "Fluid Cuprite".

The production version of the 5 Series GT was unveiled at the 2009 International Motor Show Germany in Frankfurt[12] and sales began in the fourth quarter of 2009.[13][14] In most countries the 5 Series GT was sold alongside previous generation E60/E61 5 Series sedan and wagon/estate models, therefore the 5 Series GT was the first model released of the F07/F10/F11 5 Series generation. In the United States, the 5 Series wagon models were discontinued after 2010, therefore the 5 Series GT is considered a replacement for the wagon.[15]

Body[edit]

530d GT- rear (Germany)

The 5 Series GT uses the platform from the F01 7 Series, resulting in a wheelbase of 120.7 in (3,066 mm), a front track width of 63.4 in (1,610 mm) and a rear track width of 65.1 in (1,654 mm).[16][17] When combined with the raised roofline, this results in more passenger and luggage space than the E61 5 Series wagon/estate and similar headroom to the E70 X5.[18][19]

The 5 Series GT has a coupe-like roofline, taller proportions than traditional fastback sedans and has been described as a "7 Series hatchback".[20][15] The 5 Series GT shares several design cues with that of the F01 7 Series, such as the design of the tail-lights.[21]

The tailgate has a unique two-way opening mechanism, which may be opened in a traditional car-like fashion, or the entire hatch may be open in a traditional SUV fashion for larger objects.[22][23] The 5 Series GT features frameless doors, which is a first for a four-door BMW model.[24]

With a kerb weight of 4,938 lb (2,240 kg) for the 2010 550i GT model, the 5 Series Gran Turismo is 400 lb (181 kg) heavier than the 2009 750i (which uses the same N63 4.4 L biturbo V8 engine).[23]

Equipment[edit]

EfficientDynamics features include regenerative braking, active aerodynamics, low resistance tyres, intelligent lightweight design, intelligent energy management. Dynamic Drive Control with optional Adaptive Drive added COMFORT setting in addition to NORMAL, SPORT and SPORT+ modes, with reduced stability control intervention in the SPORT+ setting and in the traction mode.

The cargo capacity is increased to 590 litres (1,700 litres with folded rear seats). Other features include LED daytime driving lights. Optional features include 4-zone automatic air conditioning (standard in BMW 550i Gran Turismo), telecommunication and navigation systems, a USB port, an 80 GB hard disc for navigation data and music collection, a multi-channel audio system, a DAB double tuner, a DVD entertainment system at the rear, a Head-Up Display, a panorama glass roof, an electrically swivelling trailer hook.[25]

In the 5 Series GT, there are several optional driver assistance systems:

The headlights contain the new LED Corona rings slanted at an angle and extending into the fenders.

The BMW 5 Series GT is roughly US$3,000 more than the equivalent BMW 5 Series sedan, being priced comparably to a similarly equipped BMW X5 midsize crossover SUV, and significantly less expensive than the BMW 7 Series.

The F07 Gran Turismo shares the same F01 7 Series-derived platform, powertrain, mechanical package, and dashboard with the upcoming F10 5 Series. However, their front fascia has different headlights and bumper air intakes, while their taillights also differ. The F07 also has a taller height, resulting in a higher center of gravity, its longer length allows for more rear legroom, the rear passenger accommodation has optional "Executive" bucket seats for two instead of the three-seat bench, and it weighs 400 pounds (180 kg) heavier compared to the F10. The F07 also features frame-less doors and a double-pane liftgate trunk.[26][27]

Transmissions[edit]

All models include 8-speed automatic transmission with Steptronic function.[28]

Models[edit]
