Spy Shots: BMW 5-Series GT Drops Some Camouflage

Posted on by  
BMW 5 Series GT

The 5-Series GT is one of the most unsuccessful models in BMW’s lineup, so before deciding if the model will survive or not, the company has prepared some small revisions for it. Our spy photographers have caught the car testing one more time, and as you can see, it has dropped more of its camouflage.

The car is wearing camouflage on only those parts of the body that benefit from this revision. Up front, the revised 5-Series GT will receive a new bumper, a slightly revised grille and a new headlight design that will most likely go all the way to the grille, like on the 3-Series. For the rear, the model will receive a new bumper and taillights with new graphics.

The most important update will lay under the 535i GT’s hood; this model will drop the current N55 engine in favor of a new turbocharged in-line six-cylinder.
