x 2.

I want to know so that I can do the same.

Beemers are always sooo0 very beautiful.

There's sort of an overwhelming composure in the styling, kudos to design teams.

It means, in polite language, you please do not ask for a TD of the Gran Turismo. And, I never get why it should be limited to 100 vehicles, especially if the X6 has no such limits. The GT is a niche car, but not something which is more exclusive than the X6.

I'm simply in love with the lines of the 5GT. Infact I like BMW's idea of launching niche products like the X6 and the 5GT. The X6 is already selling well and I'm sure the 5GT will be sold out sooner than BMW expects it to be, which may compel them to bring few more numbers of the 5GT to our shores. BMW is surely on-a-roll with the recent launches of the Z4, 760Li and the 5GT. The launch of the new 5-series will only take the excitement level higher. Any news about the launch of the X6 M?

Basically, BMW is peddling a model with an outdated engine compared to international models of their GT which come with a 400 Bhp V8. Another newer, more powerful 3 liter straight six engine will join the international GT in March. And they are selling possible left over stock under the guise of "limited edition".

Cheers,

Jay

Did you attend and take pics?. I hope so. Eagerly waiting for the pics as i couldn't check the car out as completely as i wanted to at the Auto Expo due to overcrowding at the BMW display.
