The 'BMW Concept 5 Series Gran Turismo (5 GT)' was a concept car displayed by BMW in 2009 at the Geneva Autoshow. It is the first production-destined rendition for BMW's Progressive Activity Sedan (PAS) series of cars and based on the V5 automobile platform. The 5 GT serves as a combination of a sport sedan, an SUV, and a Gran Turismo.

It has dimensions slightly similar in length to the 7-series, the height slightly more than a station wagon, and headroom comparable to the BMW X5.[1]

Design and Style

The 5 GT features design cues from the BMW CS Concept, as well as new designs indicative of upcoming models. The vehicle has a coupe-like roofline, elevated seating, and a unique "bi-modal" trunk which operates like a sedan or a traditional SUV. For the first time on a 4-door BMW, the 5 GT features frameless doors. The headlights contain the new LED Corona rings slanted at an angle and extending into the fenders. The vehicle is showcased with 21-inch wheels and a new liquid metal styled paintwork called Fluid Cuprite, made specifically for the concept.
