Next to the 5-Series Sedan and Touring, BMW will also be offering a facelift version for the most unsuccessful model in their line-up: the Gran Turismo. And our spy photographers have just sent us the first spy shots to prove it.
Just like with the sedan and touring, the GT version is camouflaged only at the front and rear, which is where it will receive most of its updates. Changes will include a new front bumper, a slightly revised grille, and a new headlight design. On the backside, it will receive a new bumper and taillights with new graphics. It is also rumored that the headlamps may go all the way to the grille – like on the 3-Series – and that the side mirrors will be sportier and feature indicator lights.
As for changes to be made under the hood, it is believed that the 535i version will drop the current N55 engine in favor of a new turbocharged inline six-cylinder.
