Arrow The BMW 3-Series GT

For the first time completely undisguised spy-shots of the 3-Series GT have emerged.


Here are the first fully revealed 2013 BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo (GT) cars! These two 3 Series GT models, in two different trims, were just spied during a BMW video shoot.

The 3 Series GT shares a similar front fascia look to the F30 3 series sedan, and a tail end which, although still ungainly, is a bit of an improvement from the 5 Series GT. Although the 3 Series GT (F34) shares a similar front end to the 3 Series sedan, design which it shares with the upcoming 4 Series Coupe is the front fender vent, which was recently spied on a production 4 Series Coupe (F32) model. The different finishes on the fender vents show us the vents on the F32 4 Series coupe should also differ depending on the trim level (i.e. black for M Sport models, satin aluminum for Modern Line).

The Silver GT is a M Sport model with the M Sport front bumper, sideskirts, and rear bumper/diffuser, and M Performance brakes. The wheels are 18" double-spoke style 397, but M Sport wheels will be available for selection. The Havana Metallic / Mojave Metallic GT is a Modern Line model with brushed/satin aluminum trim pieces.

The 3-Series GT is expected to arrive with the same engine offerings as the F30 3-Series sedan, including four and six cylinder petrol and diesel variants.

What is not yet known is if the GT will be offered in the US. If it does come to the US, expect the official reveal of the car around the time of the 2013 NAIAS in January, otherwise the 2013 Geneva show in March.

Here is a summary of the upcoming 3 Series / 4 Series lineup:
F30 3 Series Sedan
F31 3 Series Touring
F32 4 Series Coupe
F33 4 Series Convertible
F34 3 Series (GT) Gran Touring
F35 3 Series Long Wheelbase (China only)
F36 4 Series Gran Coupe

Default Re: The BMW 3-Series GT

Can this look any more weirder? The design looks very disproportional! What sort of market is BMW targeting with this sports tourer? I very much prefer our regular 3-series and if I wanted to go GT, I would go for the 5 GT any day over this one.

Mod Note: Being discussed here (BMW 3GT - Leaked!)
