The V5 Automobile platform is the first generation of BMW's Progressive Activity Sedan series. The concept debuted at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show with the Concept 5 Series Gran Turismo (5 GT). The V5 platform provides a vehicle length traditionally found in a BMW 7 series, but with the headroom found in a BMW X5. The V5 also features a unique "bi-modal" trunk 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.

On January 30, 2009 BMW released a video "BMW Concept: Scribble Video". The video was the first public introduction into the thought process behind the design of the Progressive activity vehicle series and the upcoming 5 GT. [1]
