Lamborghini isn’t the only automaker celebrating Italy’s 150th anniversary of its unification, BMW will also be joining in on the fun with a special edition 5-Series GT. This special edition was developed in cooperation with the Fashion House Trussardi and features bespoke styling cues. The BMW 5-Series GT by Trussardi will be a custom order build.

The BMW 5-Series GT by Trussardi takes its design inspiration from the world of leather and gloves, which is where the history of Trussardi originated. This inspiration lead to "Heraldic Brown" exterior paint combined with a special Glove Beige interior color with contrasting stitching that produces a ribbed pattern inspired by historical archive Trussardi gloves. The exterior comes with three layers of paint that gradually change color depending on its exposure to light. The brown paint is combined with matte dark gray accents found on the strip of the front air intake, as well as other trim parts. The exterior is completed by 20-inch alloy wheels wrapped around 245/40 and 275/35 tires. The interior of the celebratory 5-Series will feature embossed Trussardi logos on the headrests and the center tunnel.

The 5-Series GT by Trussardi is based on the 530d xDrive, but the package will also be available for the 535d, 535i, and 550i models. Pricing for this special edition will be announced at a later date.

Its style is unique. It’s like a re-assembled old car that has turned fashionable.

This is quite an impressive work actually. The choice of color for the body certainly adds a certain touch to this. And the wheels are also looking good to.

Yes, the wheels are perhaps the biggest winners on this one. They fit the car’s overall look quite perfectly. And the front also looks good on this one.

Well, I already pitched my BMW because of its unreliability and the unresponsiveness of BMW and the more BMW for me!

Quite a nice take on the 5-Series. I like the set of wheels that they had included and also the overall color. Gives some vintage vibe to it.
